Dear Parents,

Welcome back to school. With the change of season from winter to spring comes the beginning of lots of road work. Frankfort will be undergoing extensive road work on M-22 beginning at the bottom of Gateway Hill.

This work will require detours to arrive at both the elementary and high school sites with our return to school on Tuesday, April 6.

Refer to the school detour map to the right, or click here for a full size PDF. This work will continue into the summer months with the detour being in place for the remainder of the school year.

Important info for road work starting April 6th!

If your child has been typically dropped off on Leelanau Avenue, in front of the elementary, please use the Main Street detour when coming from the east. If you are coming from the high school and dropping your child off on Leelanau Avenue, please use the Harbor PL alley, turning right (just before the blinker) and then to Sixth Street. Please drive with caution as the detours will congest traffic a bit more than usual.

Get Ready for Kindergarten Round-up

April 21, 2021

Frankfort Elementary School will be holding a virtual Kindergarten Round-up on Wednesday, April 21, 2021. Frankfort-Elberta Area Schools offers kindergarten five full days a week. If you have a child who will be 5 years of age by September 1, 2021 we ask that you call Frankfort Elementary at 352-7601 for more information.

Section 6(4)(iii) of the State School Aid Act provides that if a child does not meet the minimum age requirement to be eligible to attend school for that school year under Section 1147, but will be 5 years of age not later than December 1 of that school year, the district may enroll the child for that school year if the parent or legal guardian has notified the district in writing that he or she intends to enroll the child in kindergarten for that school year.

Thanks to Panther Parents, our elementary students are getting the opportunity to code Sphero Mini robots! Coding teaches our students the concepts of problem solving, perseverance and collaboration.

In order to protect our students with life-threatening allergies, FEAS has instituted a nut-resistant policy. Please refrain from bringing food products containing peanuts, tree nuts or tree oils in lunches or as snacks. If a product has been manufactured in a facility that handles nuts, but the product itself does not contain nuts, that product is acceptable to bring. Thank you for your help in providing a safe environment for our students.
