  11. Parents/guardians are certainly welcome at Franklin Elementary School but to ensure the children's safety, building security, and uninterrupted instruction, certain rules must be followed. We rely on your voluntary compliance and cooperation. • When you arrive, enter through the main door on 1550 Lindy Terrace and report directly to the main office to sign in and check in with the secretary/building monitors. • All visitors, including parents and other adults, must sign the visitor form, communicate the reason for the visit, and obtain a visitor pass. The building monitor or secretarial staff will call the person you wish to see and confirm your visit. Adults cannot visit staff members unannounced or without permission. Visits are by appointment only and are managed by the office staff. • All informal/formal discussions or conferences should be planned with the teacher in advance so as not to conflict with or distract staff from other teacher duties, student supervision or instructional activities. • Office staff will advise the Principal or school nurse of any emergency situation requiring the need for a nonscheduled appointment with any Franklin Elementary School staff member. • Please sign-out at the end of your visit and exit through the Main Entrance door.
