Registration for Elementary Students

Franklin Lower and Upper Elementary Schools will have a joint registration for the 2018-2019 school year in the Upper Elementary School gym during the dates and times listed. School personnel hope that in combining both buildings in one location and having several different time frames, this will make registration an easier process for parents. In order to complete a student’s registration and provide parents with the name of their child’s teacher/s, the school must have a copy of the child’s certified birth certificate, Immunization Form, Social Security Card, and 2 proofs of residency, if these documents have not been previously provided. New proofs of residency are required every school year.

REGISTRATION DATES AND TIMES:

THURSDAY, JUNE 21- 10:30 A.M.-6:00 P.M.
FRIDAY, JUNE 22- 8:30 A.M.-3:00 P.M.
THURSDAY, JULY 19- 10:30 A.M.-6:00 P.M.
