Greetings Franklin Families,

     We are excited to announce we will begin a student “pick up zone” this year. This zone will help ensure students are safely picked up and will increase the speed at which you are able to locate your child after school. We do need your cooperation to make this process a success. Please know that you must drive through the pick up zone.  You cannot park your car and wait. We will have our safety patrol team there to help locate your child quickly by grade level. Please make sure to tell the safety patrol your child’s name and grade level right away so we can call your student to the front of the line to get into your car. This process will run smoothly if we can all work together!

     Please note the signage in the front of the school has changed. Our drop off/pick up zone is now a no parking zone from 7:30-9:00 a.m. and 1:30-4:00 p.m.. The Oakland police traffic patrol will enforce these parking no parking times and if you park there during these times, you will receive a parking ticket. We do not want our families to a receive parking ticket so please help us by following the new signs.

     The drop off/pick up zone will be clearly marked with orange cones. Our safety patrol squad will be in neon yellow uniforms. These students are there to help you and will always be kind and respectful. Please feel free to ask them any questions regarding this new process. They are there to help! We thank you for your help to ensure our children are safe at Franklin!

      This year we are starting a new way of making sure all our kindergarten students are placed in the best class for them. While this is different from how we have assigned students in past years, we believe this process will help all our kindergarten students thrive!
      Students will be in one classroom for the FIRST THREE DAYS of the school year. During that time ALL THE KINDERGARTEN TEACHERS will get to know ALL THE STUDENTS from all five classes. All five teachers will then meet and will assign each student to the classroom that will best meet their needs and will ensure balanced classes. Students will be assigned to their teacher for the year starting on Thursday morning, August 25th. They will stay with this teacher for the rest of the year.  Please let Principal Ingrid know if you have any questions.
      We are so excited to welcome you and your child here to Franklin!
Principal Ingrid, Assistant Principal Edwards and the Kindergarten team!
