  • Jostens Distribution to Families

    Hello 2021 Franklin High School Seniors!

    Congratulations!!  If you have met all graduation requirements you will soon be the newest alumni of Franklin High School!  We are so proud of you for reaching this incredible milestone.  We are honored to have been a part of your life's goals.  Please know that Franklin believes that this time is one of the most profound for students and their families and friends.   You deserve to be recognized and to celebrate your accomplishments.  Franklin High School, in collaboration with Portland Public Schools and many partners, are working as we speak on plans for that celebration.  The first step in this ceremony planning is to ensure you have what you ordered from Jostens.

    Jostens will deliver graduation orders to Franklin High School for students to pick up outside the building.  We look forward to getting these important items to you.  In addition, graduation ceremony details will be communicated as soon as they are finalized.  

    The following are the details for Jostens distribution:

    Date: May 5, Wednesday* 

    Times: Students are broken into groups based on their last name in order to alleviate long lines and wait-times.  If at all possible, please follow the alphabet schedule below.

    1:00p-2:00p: for students with last names A-I

    2:00p-3:00p: for students with last names J-Q

    3:00p-4:00p: for students with last names R-Z

    *If you are unable to pick up the order yourself, you may give a friend permission to pick it up for you.

    *Jostens will also have cap/gown/tassel packages for purchase during this time ($36.00 cards/cash are accepted).  

    Options for Pick Up

    1. Drive-through pick up:

    Please use the east parking lot entrance off of Woodward.  The diagram below shows how vehicles will drive through the “Pick Up Area.”  This is set up so no one needs to leave their vehicles.  Please maintain the state mandated social distancing expectations and the wearing of masks.


    1. Walk-up pick up:

    Students/families coming to Franklin on foot/using public transportation are asked to walk towards the “Pick Up Area” shown in the above diagram.  Upon arrival, you will see/be directed to a designated area for you to safely wait near that “Pick Up Area.”  Please maintain the state mandated social distancing expectations and the wearing of masks.

  • SAT for Juniors, April 13 and 27

    Students that registered to take the SAT at Franklin High School have been sent an email with detailed information about their testing room, time of arrival, and where to enter the building.

Principal's Message

  • Franklin

    Franklin Families and Students: 

    Despite the challenges associated with a different academic schedule, and not being able to see students with the consistency that we’d prefer, this was a necessary and productive week for our community.  This week the Franklin Staff participated in professional development as we prepare for the return of students on Monday.  The in service time allowed the staff to address the technical aspects of our jobs, such as becoming informed of COVID safety building protocols and procedures, practice evacuation drills, and ensure that all classrooms and spaces are equipped with the proper supplies to mitigate the risk of exposure.  The time also allowed us to build community, to reconnect and  officially welcome new staff; as we also have been away collectively for over a year.  Lastly, it afforded us the opportunity to to address the adaptive side of our jobs, to consider our practices, policies, and procedures as we teach under these new circumstances.  To reflect and consider what students are going through and identify the means to best support them and meet their needs these remaining weeks. 

    I’d like to thank the entire Franklin Staff for their hard work this week, as well as our partners for their support and thank our students and families for their continued patience and understanding.  

    We are excited about the ability to see and serve our students again next week both online and in person, and to live up to our mission of engaging each and every student with instruction based on both tradition and innovation that broadens and deepens knowledge, increases skills, and inspires confidence. Providing a diverse and supportive environment, our educators, families and community prepare our students for a strong future and appreciation for lifelong learning and service.

    Franklin STRONG,

    Chris Frazier

    Franklin Family Information Nights - NEW

    Below are the videos from the family information night in English, Spanish, Vietnamese, and Slavic.

    Hybrid Drop Off - Traffic Flow- NEW

    In an effort to reduce traffic congestion on Woodard, we are asking families to follow the traffic pattern as shown in the map below.  If possible we are asking families to have students exit the vehicles prior to Woodward and have the student walk to campus.  Having traffic on Woodward will make it difficult for buses and staff to enter and exit the East side of our building.
