Franklin MS Update - Virtual Parent Coffees and Yearbooks

Dear Franklin Families and Students, 

Good afternoon. As we finish the week, I wanted to provide you with a few updates about our Virtual Parent Coffees, selecting the school option for the upcoming year, and our yearbooks. 

I wanted to remind all of you that we will be hosting two Franklin MS Virtual Parent Coffees on Monday. During this time, I will provide a brief overview of the Return to School Plan, but the majority of the time will be devoted to answering your questions. There will be one session at 9:00 AM and an identical session at 5:00 PM. A link for each session is available below and you can submit questions for these sessions here.

Virtual Parent Coffee #1 at 9:00 AM on July 13

Virtual Parent Coffee #2 at 5:00 PM on July 13 

As you work to make the best decision for your family, I hope that this information is helpful. I am here to help answer any questions you may have and please feel free to email me at at any time. 


Dustin Wright



Return to School Decision - Due Wednesday, July 15 

For the coming year, parents and caregivers have two learning options for their students:

Responses are due by July 15, 2020. If no response is received, the student will automatically be enrolled for in-person instruction for the year.

This form is accessible through mobile devices. Translations of the form are available using the language selection option on the webpage. To select the option that works best for your child or children, please follow the steps below:

STEP 1: Access the online form at: Enrollment Form

STEP 2: Log in with your child’s Student ID and either the enrolling parent’s email address or phone number on file in the FCPS Student Information System (SIS).

STEP 3: Make your selection and finish by clicking the “Submit Form” button at the bottom of the form.

This is not an easy decision for many of you.  I recommend you:

  • Involve your children
  • Create a pro/con list for each option
  • Consider the needs of your child
  • Talk to your doctor if you have health concerns
  • Set realistic expectations
  • We know you may have additional questions and encourage you to review our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).  We will continue to add to the FAQs throughout the summer as more details are available.


The Franklin MS Yearbooks Are Here!

We are excited to inform you that our 2019-2020 Franklin Yearbooks have arrived and they will be ready for distribution later this month. Thank you again for your patience and flexibility as we worked through the delays with the yearbook publisher. 

Our yearbooks will be distributed at Franklin on Thursday, July 23rd from 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM in a curbside format.  Please enter the bus loop and our staff will be available to assist you with pickup.  Parents should be prepared to show a photo ID at the time of pickup.  In our ongoing effort to promote healthy practices and to promote social distancing, vehicle occupants should remain inside their cars.

We will have some yearbooks for sale while supplies last.  Please bring $30 in exact change or a check made out to Franklin MS if you wish to purchase a yearbook.

If you are unable to pick up your yearbook on this date, you may designate another parent to pick up your yearbook.  This must be pre-arranged by sending an email to Kelly Barlow ( with “yearbook pickup” in the subject line.  In the email, please note the name of your student and the full name of the adult picking up the yearbook on your behalf. Yearbooks will also be available for pickup during our Student Laptop Distribution in August.  Please feel free to contact Kelly Barlow ( with any additional questions.
