School Starts for students Wednesday, August 16, 2017
The first day of school for the 2017-18 school year for GRADES K-12 is Wednesday, August 16. While we hope everyone is enjoying the last days of summer break, it's important to begin preparing for the new school year. Toward that end, we are posting here the registration and open house dates for each of our schools. Also provided here is a link to a document that provides supply lists for the elementary and middle schools.

The first day for PRESCHOOL is Wednesday, August 30. Preschool teachers will be contacting families that have qualified for our preschool program in early August.

Meet w/ Mark!
Mark Kopp, the new superintendent of the Franklin County Schools, will be available next week to meet and talk with any and all members of the community. He will be at Franklin County High School Tuesday, Aug. 1 and at Western Hills High School Thursday, Aug. 3. Both sessions will begin at 6:30 p.m. and will be held in each school's library.

The so-called "Meet w/ Mark" sessions are intended to be informal opportunities for students, parents, teachers and other staff as well as community members to meet Mr. Kopp, ask questions and learn about his vision for the Franklin County Schools.
