Good Morning Franklin Families,

I am writing to you today to update you on where we are with changing the schools start and end times for the 21/22 school year.  After surveying our families earlier this year and answering the questions that were submitted from the survey, I will be recommending the changes below at the School Board meeting on Monday night.

Elementary School:  Drop off  7:15     Instructional day start 7:40    Dismissal:  2:00
Middle School:          Drop off  8:05     Instructional day start 8:25    Dismissal   3:05
High School:             Drop off  8:10     Instructional day start 8:30    Dismissal   3:15

Based on the feedback we received from our survey, I am working with the Rec Center and the Boys and Girls Club to make sure we have quality child care available for our families that need it.  We also are planning an after school tutoring program at the elementary school and a before school tutoring program at the middle school to address learning loss for students due to the pandemic.

Please know that this change is supported by research and is being considered to assist in our  efforts to improve student achievement in the Franklin School District.

As always, please don't hesitate to reach out to me with questions or feedback.
