  • 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*

Principal's Message

  • Franklin

    Franklin Families and Students:


    Today marks the end of Quarter 3 and leaves us with the last nine weeks of school. Before we step into the next term and discuss where we are going,  I want to first acknowledge where we have been.  Throughout this year our students and staff have shown tremendous patience, understanding , and courage as we’ve addressed virtually every circumstance related to educating and supporting students through CDL.  


    These past few weeks the pace has quickened, but things have started to feel more normal as we’ve seen more activity on campus.  This week we celebrate our Fall Sport athletes whose seasons are coming to an end; but who were also trailblazers by establishing and following protocols allowing for our first successful athletic season.  It's been nice to hear the band practice and to see parents and staff at athletic events. We also want to recognize our Fall Senior athletes who celebrated senior nights this week as well.  We recognize that it has taken a serious commitment from our staff and students to make these events happen in a safe manner.


    I am excited as we move into Quarter 4 and begin to finalize plans for In Person Instruction.  We also look forward to the continued plans of the end of year celebrations as we prepare to celebrate and send off the Class of 2021.


    We will continue to communicate upcoming events and provide information that will support all of our students and families.    

    Franklin STRONG,

    Chris Frazier



    A Message from  PPS 

    Communication About Hybrid - Asynchronous Planning - NEW

    Thank you for taking the time to communicate with us about your student’s preference for fourth quarter learning.  It was great to hear from you, across the high school system we have heard from over 88% percent of our families.  We want to share some schedule shifts over the next week. 


    We are committed to supporting your student through the end of the school year regardless of whether they decided to participate in hybrid in person learning two afternoons a week or to remain in on-line learning full time.  In order for our staff to prepare for this transition, we will be using Wednesday through Friday next week for professional learning and planning time.  There will not be any synchronous class periods April 14-16.  Teachers will be posting asynchronous material those days and will return to synchronous class sessions the morning of April 19. 


    We will be sending information to students who will be participating in hybrid in-person learning separately.  We thank you for your flexibility, communication and support of our students.

    April 14-16 - Attendance Protocols - NEW


    PPS has provided guidance to schools with how students will demonstrate evidence marked for  

    Below is the PPS protocol for In Service attendance:

    1. The Autodialer will be turned off since all students will be in asynchronous learning and will have 24 hours to complete assignments.  

    2. On every teacher's canvas page, a link will be posted to the school attendance google form.  

    3. Each day, students will complete the form once for work they completed in their classes.  Form only needs to be completed once.

    4. Teachers are not responsible for tracking student attendance April 14-16

    Re-Opening In Person Instruction - REMINDER


    What will your student’s day look like? 


    All students will continue their morning schedule of distance learning to maintain consistency, academic progress and classroom routines. In the afternoons, students will be split into groups. Franklin will have two groups for in-person instruction and a third for students remaining in distance learning based on our current best plan at grouping students and class capacity limits.  


    Students  participating in in-person hybrid learning will:

    •  Attend school two days a week, 

    •  Attend two classes each day,

    •  For two and a half hours each day.  


    All student IDs also serve as TriMet bus passes.  Students in distance learning will continue with asynchronous assignments in the afternoon.  


    During in person learning, students and teachers will be going deeper on the content presented in the morning sessions.  Students who are completing asynchronous learning in the afternoon will be doing the guided and independent practice, just as they are currently doing in the afternoon.


    Please see the schedule below for more details
