Realizing Student safety remains a high priority of Franklin Public Schools, our district has elected to implement a highly acclaimed program to assist us in minimizing the presence of prohibited items on our campus this year. We are convinced the poor choice of one will affect the populace. It is our heart to inspire a safer learning environment.
Our administration works diligently each day to make certain students are safe. However, they are limited in the scope of their abilities. To this end, we have formed an agreement with a private firm to provide random safety sweeps to our district utilizing highly trained non-aggressive working canines. Many school districts in our area have experienced noticeable results in calling upon the skills of these extraordinary working canines and have realized students now making better choices while at school. Testimonies include how these working canines become friends of the very students they serve!
Random safety sweeps will include parking lots, lockers, sports facilities, commons, perimeters, and other areas as directed. Please note that students are to make certain their vehicles are free from prohibited items while parked on school property. School and gymnasium locker contents are the responsibility of the assigned student. We request that you speak with your student concerning our district’s safety policies.
As your school district, we recognize the amazing challenge before today’s parent. We partner with you toward our common end objective and hope you will appreciate the steps taken on behalf of your child. For the sake of the kids, we appreciate your support.
