• Welcome to the 2020-21 school year at Franklin!

    We will begin the year in distance learning and attendance will be taken daily starting August 10. Our staff and teachers will be reaching out to you in the next two weeks to ensure that all our students have a strong start to the school year. OUSD Family Central will provide weekly updates regarding critical tasks.

    This week...

  • Dear Franklin Community, 


    As we progress into the following weeks, we will be notifying you with the most recent updates.  Our Superintendent along with the Oakland administration are doing their best to keep us informed of best practices to contain the coronavirus situation.  As you know, nearly all Bay Area residents are ordered to Shelter in Place for at least the next three weeks. In accordance with the Shelter in Place, the Franklin office is closed until further notice.  


    Below are a few pieces of information that we hope are helpful:


    • Food service distribution will continue at Garfield Elementary at 1640 22nd Ave. on Mondays and Thursdays from 8am to 12pm.  Distribution is being done on Foothill Boulevard. 


    • Teachers have prepared work and on-line links to educational resources.  You can access the assignments here.  Please contact your child’s teacher regarding school assignments and any other concerns you may have.


    • Another resource for parents is FASTalk text messages.  FASTalk text messages support literacy and Social Emotional Learning (SEL).  The messages go directly from FASTalk to parents with general grade-level ELA and SEL support tips.  Information on how to sign-up can be found here.



    • Due to the Shelter in Place, Chromebooks are no longer being distributed.  


    These are challenging days ahead of us, but our communities are pulling together to stop the potential spread of the coronavirus.  We appreciate your support, and most importantly, please be safe. 


    Thank you,


    Franklin Administrative Team
