Dear Franktown Families,

We wanted to send a quick communication out on the importance of school attendance. As school is back in session, it’s important to have a strong understanding of how daily attendance is essential to student success at all grade levels. Colorado State law requires students to attend school regularly.   We monitor weekly attendance reports which communicate if students are falling in the chronic absenteeism category of being absent 10 percent or more of the days enrolled in school during the year. These do include all absences- unexcused and excused.

We understand that children get sick and we definitely want them to stay home and get healthy. We also understand that different circumstances arise where your child may need to come late, leave early or miss a day here or there. Please continue to work with us to ensure that your child is at school so they are able to experience the highest success possible.

Borrowed clothesBorrowed clothes from the Health Room?

If by chance, your child came home in a different outfit one day after school sponsored by the health room. Would you please make sure you wash it and return it to the school as soon as possible. We have a very limited supply. TIP: If all Kindergarten and 1st grade families would please put a change of clothes in your child’s backpack for emergencies (accidents) that would be very helpful.

Pick Up and Drop OffAM drop off procedures: Pull along the curb to let students out, please use the entire length of the curb. We have staff along the curb that will help your student if needed.  Alternatively, park in a parking spot and walk your student from the parking lot using the crosswalk. Please do not allow your student to walk from a parking spot into school without you present.  

PM pick up procedures: Pull along the curb as far forward or north as possible. If there is not enough room at the curb, form a line and wait to pull forward. We will help load your student from the curbside only. Please do not use the second lane of through traffic for loading. Or Park in a parking spot and walk to the sidewalk and take your child back to the car with you using the crosswalk.

We encourage all families that can, ride the school bus. This will help with our long lines during drop off and pick up. If you need assistance with getting a bus route set up, please contact the front office. Please ride the bus!

KindergartenAttention Kindergarten Parents!

In order to ensure we are as safe as we can be in getting your students home at the end of the school day, our bus drivers are required to release kindergarten students to a designated “pick up guardian” at the bus stop.

To designate an additional “pick up guardian” please use this link “Let’s Talk” to have transportation add those names for you.

Parents

Siblings 

Grandparents 

Neighbors

Aunts/Uncles 

The “pick up guardian” will need to meet your student at the bus door and have identification ready.  

Unfortunately, students will not be released to anyone not on the list of guardians
