Miscellaneous
From the Transportation Department . . .
For future reference, when items are requested for school events, please do not send items (i.e. cases of water, drinks, etc.) with your child on the school bus. There is not a storage area for these items. Thanks for your cooperation!

A Note to Parents . . .
We want our students to recognize that every minute of instructional time is valuable and that we don't have time to waste. When we interrupt instructional time for minor reasons, it sends the message to the students that all of these little interruptions are more important than the lesson at hand. We are asking parents to work with us in this matter. If you need to get an item to your child, i.e. a lunch box or homework, please bring it to the front desk and we will have it delivered to your child during a break or class change. George Oehlert, Principal Franklin County School K-12
