Principal's Message

  • Franklin

    Dear Franklin Families and Students:  

    Today marks the last official day of high school for our Seniors.  We would like to thank them for their many contributions these past four years.  The Class of 2021 is commended for their innovation, their persistence, and their desire to enhance our school community.  The Class of 2021 will certainly be missed. To the Seniors and their families we congratulate you and salute you. We look forward to celebrating with you at commencement on June 8th.

    Thank you being Franklin STRONG,

    Chris Frazier  

    Updates, Highlights, and Reminders 


    Commencent is right around the corner on June 8 at Providence Park (see information below) and we are so excited to celebrate with you!  If your senior has gone through the clearance process and submitted an email for family tickets to be sent, you will receive an email by no later than Monday, June 7 about your tickets.


    How do I get my family tickets?

    • The email address submitted by your student will receive multiple emails that contain all of your tickets.  You will need to open each of the emails.

    1. Open the emails from SeatGeek 

    2. "Accept" the tickets

    3. "Sign up" (if you never used SeekGeek) or "login" (if you have a SeatGeek account).

    4. Your tickets will then be loaded into your SeatGeek account.

    5. For Graduation on June 8: you can access your tickets through your email OR using the SeatGeek app.

    • Note: You have the ability to transfer tickets to other people using SeatGeek if you would like to do so.

    PPS Vaccinations Update - REMINDER

    A message from Portland Public Schools


    Dear PPS Families,

    As we shared last week, the Oregon Health Authority recently announced the approval of Pfizer’s two-dose COVID-19 vaccination for individuals age 12 and up. 

    In order to receive the vaccine, students ages 12-14 must be accompanied by either a parent, a guardian, or someone designated by the parent. If accompanied by an adult other than a parent, a student must have a parent-signed consent form. Below is the consent form in all PPS-supported languages:

    Please visit the PPS Student & Family Vaccination website for information about our supported Wednesday vaccination opportunities at the Oregon Convention Center, which includes shuttle bus availability for students and families at five PPS locations. You can also visit all4oregon.org for vaccination opportunities throughout the week.

    Additional Opportunities for students: please see links below:
