FPS TEXT MESSAGES UPDATE

In early May, we started utilizing text messaging to families through our school messaging system. At the time, we sent out a form to fill out if anyone had issues or did not receive that initial text message. Thank you to all the parents that filled out the form.


After investigating why there were some issues, we worked with our vendor to resolve the majority of issues on the backend and also made it so our families do not have to reply with “Y” to that initial message. Therefore, no further action needs to take place from parents. As school starts back up in the fall, please make sure to verify we have your cell phone numbers correctly entered during the Back-To-School Online Check-In process you will complete for your child sometime in August. We will send a first message after school starts in September and shore up any issues at that time. And please note, anytime we send a time-sensitive message, we will also send a phone call and email so parents and guardians should not miss an important message.

STUDENT ENGAGEMENT SURVEY MAY 23RD - 26TH

The week of May 23rd - 26th your student will be participating in a Student Engagement Survey. This survey was written by the district and takes less than 10 minutes to complete. It asks students to respond to questions in areas related to environment, learning, and relationships. Information from this survey is used by teachers and administrators to identify areas of improvement related to the student experience. If you have questions about the survey, please contact Shaunna LaPlant, shaunna.laplant@franklin.k12.wi.us. Thank you.
