* When calling in a student absence please include the following:
Speak clearly and spell your student's name, identify who you are and your relationship to the student, and give the reason for the absence. If the absence is due to illness, please include your child's symptoms.
* If your student needs an early dismissal:
1) your student may bring a note to the front office (attendance) in the morning and he/she will receive a pass which will allow him/her to leave class at the specified time. In this case, you will not need to enter the building, your student will sign out in the front office using their pass and leave FHS.
2) If your student did not bring a note and you are calling for an early dismissal, plan to come to the office at least five minutes early to fill out the necessary paperwork. We will call your student out of class at that time.
Homework request information
Homework requests are for students who are out for more than 2 days (3 days or more). With the current A/B day schedule at Franklin High School, students are only missing each class one time in that scenario. A student who has been absent less than 3 days should see teachers on their own after returning to school. Parents or students may email or call teacher individually if they would like work for shorter absences. All teacher emails are listed on the school website.
Pick up time for homework requests should be after 3 p.m. to give teachers adequate time to get the work to the office (note that the office closes at 3:45 p.m.)
Homework requests are available for pick up the following day after school (Request today – pick up tomorrow)
When possible, the homework request should include the parent or student email address so teachers can send things electronically
