A Message from Our Principal

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to Benjamin Franklin Elementary School! Our school is a welcoming place for both parents and students.

It is your involvement in the school and your child's education that truly makes this a learning community. Working together is how we achieve the best results for all. We welcome your time, efforts, and ideas at this school because a strong home/school partnership is the key to your child's success.

Daily, all students should arrive at school between 8:45 – 8:55 a.m. Please adhere closely to these times. There is no supervision for your child prior to 8:45 a.m. Students arriving after 8:55 a.m. will be marked tardy.

Dismissal begins at 3:20 p.m. except for Thursday when dismissal is at 2:50 p.m. All walkers are expected to be picked up at that time. If the need arises to pick up your child early, please send a note to the teacher that morning. We appreciate your attention to this matter.

State legislation requires a note from a parent or medical professional within 10 days of a student's absence. Our state guidelines only allow for 9 authorized absences for the whole year.

I am honored, proud and excited to be your administrator at Benjamin Franklin Elementary School and I look forward to working with you and your child/children. Please do not hesitate to call if you have questions, comments or concerns.

Mrs. Joanne Conte - Principal
