Dear Parents and Guardians of Frankford High School Students:

Welcome back to the 2017-2018 school year! I hope that this letter finds you well and that you have all been enjoying your summer thus far. In addition to welcoming everyone “back to school”, I want to provide you with some important information regarding the upcoming school year.

Our 9th grade orientation will take place on Wednesday, August 30, 2017 beginning at 12:30 PM. Please enter through the Main Entrance on the Oxford Avenue side of the building. There will be a brief presentation the Auditorium, followed by a tour of the school. Students will also have the opportunity to meet with coaches and club sponsors to begin getting involved right away. Finally, there will be an opportunity to purchase school uniforms and to have their ID pictures taken prior to the first day of school, making their first day much easier.

The first day of school for all students is Tuesday, September 5, 2017.

The regular school day begins at 8:00 AM and dismisses at 3:00 PM.  Students who receive transpasses from SEPTA are responsible for getting to school on the first day themselves. They will receive their transpasses during their assigned lunch on September 5th to go home. Since transpasses are based on students’ addresses, it is possible that students that just registered will not have one on the first day.

Please be mindful that students are expected and required to attend school each day on time. Breakfast will be provided in the Lunchroom from 7:30 AM-7:55 AM only. It is imperative that you stress the importance of being in school on time to your child.

I look forward to seeing you all at our “Back to School Night” on Tuesday, September 19, 2017 at 5:30 PM in the Auditorium. We have a great deal of information to share with you about some exciting new programs and offerings that we have for our students. There will also be a special session for parents of Seniors pertaining to graduation events and requirements.
