Material Return Update

Weekly Update 5-15-20

Dear Falcon Families,

It is hard to believe that we only have one week left in this very unique school year. As I have said before, I am amazed at the work our staff and students have accomplished during this unprecedented learning experience. Thank you all for your continued support of our efforts at Franklin Heights High School. Below is an explanation of our end of the year procedures. Please do not hesitate to call or email with any questions.

Exams for Grades 7-12: The exam window for all students in grades 7-12 will be May 19-22. Teachers will be providing a cumulative assessment with feedback for a semester exam so students have the opportunity to reflect on their learning for the year and earn quality points for credit. Teachers have been given wide latitude on what their exam format will be. Depending on the course content, the design of the course, and the projects assigned throughout the course, the format could vary significantly from a traditional exam. Our goal is to provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate the essential learning that has taken place, for teachers to reinforce the most significant learning for the course, and for students to be able to reflect on their mastery of various concepts. We will still allow Seniors ONLY to exempt out of exams based on the traditional criteria.

Material Returns: Below is our process for the return of school items to buildings as well as personal items to students and families. It is our goal to try to accomplish both exchanges at the same time so families will only need to drive up to the school once during the week of May 26. We will be asking students to return all textbooks, library books, and teacher-owned materials. Students in grades PK-11 will be allowed to keep their Chromebooks over the summer if they wish. If you are not returning to Franklin Heights next school year, you must return your Chromebook. Here are our dates and times for material returns. If you have students in multiple grades, you can bring them all on one day.

12:00-2:30pm last names H-P

Drop off will be in the north parking lot (student lot). Pick up of materials will be in the south parking lot (staff/bus lot). Please drop off materials prior to picking up materials. You will be directed to one of three drop off locations when you enter from Briggs Rd. Whoever is returning the items will need to exit the vehicle and report to the staff member working the station the textbook number or asset tag number of the book or chromebook. The staff member will record what is being returned. You will then be directed to place the items on the cart as directed by the staff member. We will practice all social distancing procedures and recommend any one returning materials wears a mask. Please see the attached map.

Food Distribution the Week of Memorial Day: Tuesday, May 26 will be the last day we will be distributing food from our schools and school buses for the school year. Each student may pick up four breakfasts and four lunches at the school and bus locations between the hours of 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. on that day.

Summer Activities/Summer School: With the current order from the director of the Ohio Department of Health in place, the beginning of our summer programming will look significantly different than the past. While that date could still be adjusted to an earlier or later date, we are confident that we will not be hosting any face-to-face activities through at least June 1. We are preparing to offer some essential summer school classes virtually. If you are interested in any summer school credit recovery opportunities, please contact your school counselor before the end of the school year.

Fall Athletics: All students hoping to participate in fall extracurricular activities will still need to meet OHSAA requirements of earning at least 5 credits during the fourth grading period. Final grades are not used for eligibility, only fourth grading period grades.

Please continue to check the school website for any other updates and videos that may be posted for our families. Students graduating this school year have received separate communications regarding those events. If you need to pay fees, those can be paid online. The school website has directions for paying online in the parent resources tab. All communications shared with families are posted in our parent hub on the school website.


Stay Healthy / Stay Safe Be nice / Work hard / Have fun
