Dear families of Franklin Middle School,
We wanted to bring to your attention that next year, for the 2021-22 school year, Franklin Middle School will have a new bell (school and end) times of 8:40 AM - 3:10 PM.
At their November 10 meeting, the MPS Board of Education voted to approve the proposed bell time schedule beginning school year 2021-22. The Board of Education is confident the approved schedule can meet the goals of:
- Increasing participation in after-school programming particularly for those schools with a higher concentration of families receiving educational benefits as this has been shown to have a direct correlation to student achievement and sense of belonging.
- Reducing transportation costs so that savings can be reinvested into the classroom.
- Improving on-time arrivals at schools.
If you have any questions about this change, please let me know.
Principal Karon Cunningham
