Dear Franklin at Alma families,
School pictures have arrived. Please see below for how picture packets will be delivered.
This Friday, December 18th is an early release at 12:15pm. Please make arrangements to pick your child up at school or at the bus stop on time.
This Friday, December 18th are the winter classroom parties. In-person and remote teachers have planned some fun activities to celebrate the end of the semester. Class parties are from 11:15am – 12:15pm. We have several guidelines in place to keep everyone safe and healthy during the parties, so please do NOT send any treats to school without permission from the teacher.
There is no school from December 21st – January 1st. Please enjoy the holiday season while keeping yourself and each other safe. Wash hands, social distance, and wear masks.
We will be starting our second semester in a remote setting for all students on January 4, 2021 with the hope that we can return to in person learning (for those who have selected it) on Tuesday, January 19, 2021.
During the two weeks of remote learning, January 4 – 15, 2021, Franklin at Alma will offer an on-site support center for students who need a safe place to go during the day. Students will log in and work on their remote learning in a supervised environment. The centers will follow all health and safety guidelines, including physical distancing and limited group sizes. Face masks are required for staff and students.
Registration for the on-site center closes at 3pm on Wednesday, December 16th. To register your child, go to: On-Site Support Center Registration
On behalf of the Franklin at Alma staff, I would like to wish your family Happy Holidays!
Mrs. de Jesus, Principal
