Dear Franktown Elementary Community:

Spring is here, and the weather is always changing. We need to be prepared for the possibility of delayed releases due to lightning. It is always our highest priority to keep your children safe. To this end, when we need to have a delayed dismissal due to lightning/weather, we will wait for a break in the weather to allow children to leave the building safely. Please be patient as we monitor the weather.  We will wait until we have a lightning distance greater than eight miles.  If parents have an urgent need to pick up their children at the regular dismissal time or before we determine it is safe to dismiss all students, you may come to the front door, complete the sign-out form, and we will call your student to the office and release them directly to you.  Please only use this for urgent circumstances.  As you can imagine, this will create extreme congestion and make social distancing very difficult. Please wear a mask and maintain social distancing while waiting.

We will send a second communication when we are ready to dismiss.

For your reference, we use the Weatherbug App and the Spark feature within the app to monitor lightning.

We appreciate your patience during these unusual circumstances. Remember we are trying to keep your children as safe as possible.
