We have updated the lunch menu for the start of school next week. https://5il.co/jjgu
On Monday we are asking all parents to certify their child before coming to school. This certification will be done through the parent portal on your TeacherEase account. Parents will login and be prompted to answer a couple questions for each child. If you receive a failed screening, then the student should not attend class and should be kept home. https://5il.co/k0n6
Updated First Day of School Information We are very relieved to announce the health issue we had last week has resulted in a Negative test result. We will now be re-opening the school year on Monday August 24th. Students attending face-to-face instruction in the classroom will report to school or be at their bus stop at the original times. Students will not be allowed to enter any school building before 7:45 am. Face masks will be required to enter the building. Classes are scheduled to begin at 8:10 am and students will be released from school after their lunch periods. The schedule for re-opening school is as follows: • Monday thru Thursday, August 24-28, will be in- school instruction, with Friday being our first Remote-Learning day. • Monday thru Thursday, August 31st – September 4th will be in-school instruction, with Friday September 4th being a remote planning day without student instruction. • Students in remote-learning will be contacted by their teachers for further instruction on how to begin their school day.
We are scheduling times on Thursday and Friday to distribute Chromebooks to all 6-12th grade students. We are asking parents or students to stop by the school during these times to pick up a device in the high school gym. Thursday August 20: 9:00am-12:00pm and 4:00pm-7:00pm Friday August 21: 9:00am-2:00pm
We want to make sure that all 6-8th grade students have a device to take home this year. As we move closer to distributing Chromebooks to students, we want to provide some information. Once we distribute a Chromebook to your child, they will be responsible for bringing the device to school each day and making sure it is charged at home during the evening. This will also provide a device for your child to use on remote learning days. Chargers will be provided along with the device. We are asking that you read and submit our Acceptable Use of School Technology agreement. Please take a minute to complete the Google form for your child. If for some reason you do not wish for your child to bring a device home with them, please contact Wesley Koehler, firstname.lastname@example.org, so we can make arrangements for the device to stay at school. Please complete the following form: https://forms.gle/ebtQG8wH53fDRArH6
Pre-K Families- We will be moving the start date of PK back by one week. We will begin the week of August 31st. Mrs. Purdue will be contacting you to set up (or reschedule) your parent meeting. We apologize for the change in plans and we appreciate your patience as we prepare for a safe entry back into the classroom.
Attention Parents and Students. Due to concerns of a potential health risk, our first student attendance day, whether face-to-face or remote learning, has been moved back. We are seeking guidance from the Morgan County Health Department, and will provide more information by Friday August 21st.
Attention Parents and Students. After careful discussions over how to best meet the needs of our student population, while still maintaining strict safety measures, Backpacks will be allowed this year. Due to social distancing, students are not allowed to use our lockers. Backpacks will afford them a better method of transporting their materials from class to class. Please help us by monitoring what is put into backpacks and try to keep them as clean as possible. Thank you for your continued assistance in making our return to Face-to-Face learning a success. By working together, we can overcome the virus and remain Franklin Strong. Mr. Waggener Mrs. Willman

Good afternoon! If you HAVE NOT submitted a schedule for your child enrolled at Franklin High School, please visit the school website where you can view the master schedule and fill out the schedule form. Please make sure you fill out the appropriate form, which will be the grade your student is entering into this year. Only for grades 9-12. You will notice that the master schedule has changed from block to traditional. If you have already scheduled classes, you DO NOT need to worry about contacting Mrs. Black and making any changes. If you were approved to be a TA, Mrs. Black has emailed you about choosing a new class in place of your TA position. If you are planning to take a LLCC course, you should have also received an email earlier this summer asking for proof of your online statement. Please make sure that any changes, requests, or new schedules are submitted or emailed by Friday, August 7 at 3:00 p.m. After this point Mrs. Black will fill in the high school schedules as necessary and then all changes will need to go through the formal add/drop process after the first week of classes.
