Franklin Schools have decided to alter their Monday, August 21st schedule. This message was sent out last week:
“Our school board decided last night to bump school back one hour on August 21st, thereby extending our school day one hour and avoiding sending elementary students home during the height of the eclipse. This was decided in an effort to keep students safe from looking at the sun unprotected and injuring their eyes. Therefore, on Monday, August 21st, school will begin at 8:30, with the tardy bell at 8:40, and will end at 3:20. PALM, lunches, and recess w
ill remain on our normal schedule.””

St. Rose will begin our day as usual; but, we are changing dismissal to 3:20pm on Monday, August 21st. If you choose to pick-up your child at the usual time, please feel free to do so. Otherwise, this will allow the exposure of the eclipse to have passed enough to be safe for dismissal. If your child rides the Franklin bus in the morning, he/she will be excused from being tardy.  Please note that the afternoon bus will not arrive at St. Rose until 3:40, therefore your child will arriving at home later than usual.

You are welcome to join us Monday morning from 8 – 8:30 for an informative presentation about the eclipse.

Anyone wishing to view the eclipse with their child must sign-out the student in the school office.  Most classes will watch a live stream of the eclipse via NASA and will NOT be watching outside.  If you have any questions, please contact your child’s teacher(s).

For fun your child may come to school dressed in all black for a $1 donation to Little Sisters of the Poor!

Thank you for your understanding as we witness this historical event!
