The District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC) is comprised of parents, staff, and community members and is designated to advise district officials on English learner programs and services. Our district has scheduled a DELAC meeting for Wednesday, September 19th from 6:00-7:30 at Franklin School Library. Food and childcare will be provided.
In order to help ensure a smooth pick up at the end of the day, please coordinate pick up times and locations with your child. This may assist students with transitioning from the waiting area to the cars more efficiently. Also, as a reminder, staff and students will remain in the pick-up area between the times of 2:30 to 2:45. We encourage parents to stagger their arrivals between these times in order to alleviate traffic congestion that occurs at the start of dismissal. Thank you for your support and patience in following our parking and traffic plan.
Thank you and enjoy the weekend!
