Franklin Towne Charter High School is committed to supporting all students in gaining the skills and knowledge they need to be successful. In order to accomplish this goal, all students are expected to attend school daily. Each day a student misses is a lost day of valuable instruction. Even a few days absent will cause a student to fall behind in instruction.

All students must swipe into the building prior to 8:05 a.m., and must be seated in their first assigned class no later than 8:10 a.m. Attendance is taken daily. If your child does not attend school, it is your responsibility to communicate that to the school by sending in a note with your child on the day they return from the absence. In the event they are absent, please be sure to check the online grading system and teachers’ websites or email their teachers for missed homework and assignments. If your child has excessive absences, you will be required to come to the school to help develop an attendance improvement plan for your child. You can check the online grading system at any time to verify student attendance.

The school building will officially open at 7:30 a.m. Students are not permitted in the building prior to 7:30 a.m. unless there are qualified personnel in the building to supervise them for safety and security reasons. All students may enter the main building through the student entrance. Students will be permitted to proceed to their lockers/classrooms at 8:05 a.m. All students must swipe into the building prior to 8:05 a.m. and must be seated in first period prior to the bell at 8:10 a.m. to avoid being marked late.
