  • Principal’s Notes

    Hello,

    This week finished with our first round of tutorials.  Students are expected to utilize the time to visit their teachers for support.  Students were very productive and we are excited by the turnout.  Next week, is a big week for us. Homecoming is a special time for us each year but more so this year with our return to this neighborhood.  We will celebrate homecoming with the club faire, assembly, game and dance.  With homecoming events and Back to School Night it is really feeling like we are now moving into fall. 

    Hope to see you at these events!

    Updates

    • Lockers will be distributed in 2nd Period Wednesday Sept. 20 with the exception of Seniors which will be distributed before Sept. 27.  Thank you so much for your continued patience in this process.
    • Bike Racks-More bike racks have been ordered and will be install as soon as they arrive!
    • Clinton Street  is our access to the west parking lot.  Please do not drop students off from this area.  Clinton in a “in only” in the AM so cars going back out are causing a jam up.  This will soon be gated and card key access only.  This lot will also be closed once full at night events and Clinton blocked to all but residents.
    • Homecoming events:  Game with half time celebration starts at 6 pm.  Lot on Clinton when full will close.  Dance will be from 8-11pm in the Commons.  Please pick up your students promptly at 11pm.  We want students home before curfew. 
    • Cell phones: We want to thank everyone for their efforts to support the new Cell Phone/Electronic Device Policy at Franklin. It is our goal to help our students find a healthy balance as they use their cell phones/electronic devices throughout the school day. Current brain research is telling us that adolescent brain development is being impaired by over exposure to cell phones and other electronic devices with screens. Please help us support the healthy growth of our students by reminding them that cell phones/electronic devices are required to be off and away during all class periods (this includes the use of devices while students are on restroom breaks or in the halls during class periods). The complete policy is clearly explained in the Student Planner/Handbook. In addition, there is a new book, “Glow Kids”, that reviews some of the recent brain research about our kids and the use of digital devices.
