Student Handbook - Healthroom
For illness, the student's temperature is taken and rest time is provided. If his / her temperature exceeds 99.9, we will contact a parent to send the student home. Parents are also notified when a student is not willing to return to his / her class after 15 minutes.
If a student has sustained an injury due to a fall, we will treat the injury by immobilizing it and applying ice, if the student expresses intense pain, a parent will be contacted. We do not hesitate to call the Franklin Fire Department Rescue Squad for seriously injured or ill students.
Please note: We attempt to be very observant of the physical well-being of your child(ren), however, we do rely on them to communicate their problems to us.

Student Handbook - Wellness
The Franklin Public School District promotes a healthy school environment by supporting wellness, good nutrition, and regular physical activity as a part of the total learning experience.
The District supports a healthy environment where children learn and participate in positive dietary and lifestyle practices. The District will evaluate and integrate health based educational programs and practices, which promote wellness to our students, staff and community so that the schools contribute to the basic health status of children. This is a coordinated effort by the entire community, which includes parents, students, school administrators, teachers, school board members, child nutritionist, food service professionals and the business community.
Student Handbook - Weapons
No one shall possess a dangerous weapon or look-alike weapon on school property, school busses or at any school-related events.
Student Handbook - Walking or Biking to School
Permission must be given each school year for every student. This is indicated on the Student Information Form which is due before the beginning of the school year. If you give your child permission to walk/ride, it is the responsibility of the child with teacher supervision to sign out in the classroom each day. Please Note: As stated on the form permission does NOT apply when your child is leaving school early for any reason or is sent home from the health room.
Student Handbook - Volunteers
Our school offers parents/guardians the opportunity to make a difference in their child's school by welcoming volunteers. The work is not hard and is very rewarding. Make as much of a time commitment as your busy schedule allows. Volunteer opportunities are available, but not limited to the health room, classrooms, library, clerical/office and special committees. Contact the school office for more details.
Student Handbook - Visitors
Parent visitations to school are encouraged and welcomed. We recommend that you notify the teacher and/or principal in advance. In this way you can state your interest and be assured of the best time to visit. All visitors must sign in at the office and receive a badge before going to the classrooms. The main entrance is open for your convenience. Other doors remain locked as a safety precaution.
Student Handbook - Video & Photography Permission
To enhance our students' experience and further communication within our community, there is the potential for your child(ren) to be video taped or photographed by either district personnel or the news media during classroom activities or events. If you do not grant permission for your child(ren) to be included in public broadcast of video or video yearbooks and for publishing photographs in newspapers, school newsletters, or district publications, send a signed letter with your request to the school office.
Student Handbook - Testing
Please plan around testing! If you are planning vacations or appointments, please consult the testing schedule to avoid these dates. Each year students take state tests in late October and the month of November.
Student Handbook - Telephone Student Use
Please help your child plan ahead so that it will not be necessary for him/her to call home for forgotten items. Students will not be allowed to use the phone to retrieve homework assignments. They are also not allowed to use the phone to make arrangements to go to a friend's home after school. You may leave a message with the school secretary when you need to communicate with your child during the school day. Students may only be called to the phone at the discretion of the school principal. This is for their safety.
