Sign up to take part helping our school be more secure than ever. We are starting a “gatekeeper” program at Franklin (similar to what is in place at Lincoln Middle School). We need volunteers to sign up for a 1-1/2 hour shift, once a week, anytime between 9:00-3:00 (till 1:30 on Wednesdays). This is very easy to do — just sit outside the front office and sign guests in and out. While there, you can take some time to read, pay bills, etc. But most importantly, keeping the front gate secure and knowing who is going in and out of Franklin. Please go to http://www.mysignup.com/gatekeeper to volunteer. If you have any questions, contact Kim Jaffe or Varso Mesrobian in the front office for more information.
The district requires that students remain off of all playground equipment after school UNLESS they are signed into Playground Access. Franklin does not have supervision in either of the Kindergarten yards after school, and is not responsible for children playing on the yard after school.
Please do not allow your children to play in the Kindergarten yards after school! The playground structure on the large playground is for Playground Access students only.
We have observed many adults allowing Franklin students and toddlers to play on the playground structures after school. This is a liability and safety issue; PLEASE do not allow this. If you have someone else picking up your child after school, please inform them of the policy as well.
In addition, we have observed many dogs that are left alone tied to the fence during morning drop off and pick up. PLEASE DO NOT DO THIS. Dogs must be kept off campus, unless they are trained service dogs (i.e.: Seeing Eye dogs, rescue dogs, police dogs, etc.).
Thank you for supporting us in keeping all students safe at Franklin!!
