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.
We are honored, proud and excited to be your administrative team at Benjamin Franklin Elementary School and we 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
