Traffic Situation at Franklin Elementary

Posting an email that was sent to all families with a valid email address in Synergy this afternoon:

Good Afternoon Franklin Families,

We had an absolutely wonderful first day of school getting to know your children!  Teachers spent time learning names and facilitating activities to help students to get to know the classroom routines and feel more comfortable in their new setting.

Thank you so much for your enthusiasm and support as we begin 2019-2020 school-year!

I would like to express my sincerest apologies for the traffic situation this morning.  There were 3 main issues impacting our traffic pattern that created a very slow and frustrating experience for some:

1) The gravel parking lots close to Franklin were not available for parent parking due to work being done by the adjacent cemetery

2) The crew from SMUD had closed traffic on Franklin Blvd. in the southern direction

3) There was a partial closure on Kammerer Road – this delayed both personal vehicles and a bus

In addition, since it was the first day of school, there were many families wanting to park and walk their students to classrooms and wish them a great first day – I did the same with my own children.

Again, I apologize for the impact this congestion had on many of our beautiful families. 

Due to these unforeseen circumstances, we did not mark any student tardy until after all buses had arrived and all vehicles had been cleared out of the parent pick up line.  This was about 8:30am.

Unfortunately, I understand these same 3 issues will be in place tomorrow as well.   We will do our best to safely move traffic through our lot.  We have invited police services to join us and hope to have their assistance.  Please also allow some extra time for morning drop off tomorrow. 

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

School Starts Tomorrow: Thursday, August 15, 2019

The First Day of School is TOMORROW,

Thursday, August 15, 2019!

Greetings Students and Families!

Your Franklin staff and teachers are excitedly preparing for your arrival tomorrow, the first day of school for the 2019-20 school year!  We will greet you at the front gates with a fun pencil and a ready smile … if you need help figuring out where to go, we can help with that, too!  This is going to be a fantastic school year filled with so many great activities, learning experiences, and memories, Pioneers, and we can’t wait to embark on our collective new adventure!  

Remember to arrive EARLY this week, especially if you are new to Franklin Elementary and haven’t experienced morning traffic.  You may wait in the car-line and drop off by the front gates (staff will be there to direct you) or you may park in the parking lot OR in front of the school in the gravel area directly east of the cemetery.  The south lane of the long driveway is reserved for families to walk into school from the front–PLEASE find the sidewalk once you are near the parking lot and USE THE MARKED CROSSWALK.

You MAY NEVER EVER park directly on Hood-Franklin road and walk into the south driveway EXIT.  Hood-Franklin is a busy road that originates directly from the freeway with LARGE TRUCKS & cars travelling at higher rates of speed and negligible shoulder area on the side of the road.

Our students’ and families’ safety is of premier importance!  Thank you for being:  Respectful, Responsible, and Safe drivers!

💚 Pioneers, sleep well tonight and know that we are excited to meet you! 💚

Link to EGUSD Parent/Student Handbook

New this year:  All parents are required to sign and turn in a receipt for having received a copy of the EGUSD Parent/Student Handbook.  Should you not be able to locate the copy that was mailed to your student’s registered address, you may access copies in English, Spanish, and Vietnamese here.

If you would like to print out the “receipt” page in order to sign and turn into your child’s teacher, you can view and print a copy here.
