Parents of current 5th grade students:

Immunizations of meningitis and Tdap are needed for the start of 6th grade.  Please call the doctor now to schedule an appointment prior to the start of school so that your student will have the shots that Indiana requires for middle school.  When you have an appointment date and time, please let the elementary school nurse know so that it can be recorded. Requirements are grade level-based, and not dependent on age of students entering 6th grade.  Call now for the best availability of appointments.

Parents of current high school juniors:

Two doses of meningitis are needed for the start of 12th grade.  Please call your student’s doctor now to schedule an appointment prior to the start of school so that your student will have complete shots as designated by the state of Indiana.  Please call the nurse at 803-8304 to advise her about the date and time of appointment.  Students are expected to have the shots at the beginning of the school year.  Call now for best availability of appointments.

Please follow the links to the immunization charts:

It is amazing what can be found when spending some time on Google.  Most recently we discovered that the official holiday for New Year’s Day in 2017 will be on January 2!  The approved calendar for the 16-17 school year indicated that students in Franklin Township would be returning to school on that day after the winter break.  This new information has caused a shift of days in the calendar.

The link to the calendar shown below will take you to the new version of the calendar with the corrections.  The modification is that students WILL attend school on Friday, December 16.  The teacher work day has been moved to Monday, December 19, 2016.  With this change, students and staff will return to school on Tuesday, January 3, 2017.

During it's regular meeting on November 23, 2015, the School Board voted to implement Option 2 of the redistricting plan.  This plan was recommended to the Board after many months of gathering data, having community meetings, and working with community members.

This plan will begin with the 2016 - 17 school year.  More information will be released beginning January to those families which are impacted regarding the plan.

Star Express Franklin Township has been affected by a Class I Food Safety Recall. The Pilgrim’s Pride Corporation issued a voluntary recall of poultry products due to possible foreign matter contamination. All affected products have been removed from the menu and the proper steps are being taken to report and destroy them. The safety of our students is our first concern, and we appreciate your patience with future menu adjustments.

Our student council is caught up on their cap sorting and we are proud to announce that we have enough caps for 3 #arianastrong benches! We even have 200 lbs left over! We ask that any caps you have you hold on to. Our goal is to continue with one bench a year to spread Ariana's message throughout the community, so we will need those caps eventually. Also, each bench does cost $250. We have raised $499 through grants, but that leaves $251 still needed. If you are interested in donating to our cause please contact Mr. Huotari (chase.huotari@ftcsc.k12.in.us). Thanks to all that helped us collect over 1200 lbs of plastic!!!!!
