Franklin Middle School Update: Student Item Pick-Up

Dear Franklin Parents and Students,

Good afternoon!

We recently received guidance from FCPS regarding the protocols they have put in place for the pick-up of student belongings that are still at school in lockers. Throughout this process, our top priority is the safety of our students, families, and staff members.  In this email, you will find details about the process Franklin MS will implement for a curbside pick-up of student belongings. Additionally, if there is any student medication in our Health Room, you will be contacted separately. Finally, we will schedule a separate event in June for students to drop off school-owned materials (laptops, library books, etc.) and to pick-up any End of the Year materials.

Our curbside locker item pick-up will occur on the following days. Eighth grade students may pick-up their locker items on May 18 or 19 based on student last name and seventh grade students will follow a similar procedure on May 26 or May 28. 

Monday, May 18 from 9:00 AM -  1:00 PM - 8th grade (Last Name A-L)

Tuesday, May 19 from 9:00 AM -  1:00 PM - 8th grade (Last Name M-Z)

Tuesday, May 26 from 9:00 AM -  1:00 PM - 7th grade (Last Name A-L)

Thursday, May 28 from 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM - 7th grade (Last Name M-Z)


All student items contained in hallway lockers and gym lockers will be bagged and labeled for curbside pickup in the bus lane. Below is an outline of the pickup process:

  1. Students and families should arrive between 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM on their designated pickup day.
  2. Drivers should enter the school campus through the Kiss ‘n Ride parking lot. 
  3. Please provide a Franklin staff member with your student’s last name which will be radioed ahead to a staff member in the bus loop.
  4. All of the bags will be alphabetized by last name on our curb and Franklin staff members will assist in locating the bag and loading it in the car.
  5. Families will only be able to pick up the belongings of their own student.

In our ongoing effort to promote healthy practices and to promote social distancing, vehicle occupants are encouraged to remain inside their cars.  

Students who are unable to pick up their bagged items on the dates above  should email their grade-level administrator to make other arrangements. 

7th grade administrator: Rob Gibbs –

8th grade administrator: Forrest Reid –

The student locker item pick-up is completely optional and if there is nothing in your locker(s) of personal value, there are no additional actions you need to take at this time. We will store any unclaimed bags until the end of the school year and at that time, the contents will be discarded or donated.  

Please feel free to contact us with any questions or if there is anything else we can do to help.
