Welcome to Frankfort Elementary!

From the Principal's Desk

Week of November 11th:

Dear Elementary Parents and Guardians,

It certainly appears that winter has arrived. I thought there was supposed to an autumn in there somewhere, but here we go. Please make sure your child brings outdoor recess clothing each day--coat, hat, mittens/gloves, snow pants, and boots. If your child doesn't have boots, he/she will be asked to stand on the concrete part of the playground--wet feet all afternoon are no fun. Please notify the elementary office if you are unable to provide winter outdoor clothing. We will do our best to help!

Quarter 1 report cards were mailed on Friday, November 8. They should be arriving soon to your mailbox.

Reminders for the coming week:

  • The Elementary Holiday Program has changed one day, to December 19, at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. Preschool students are only participating in the afternoon performance this year; the K-6 performance is both at 1 p.m. and at 7 p.m. The change has been noted on the school calendar; please note the changes on yours. More information will be forthcoming from the elementary classrooms and office.
  • We have a late start on Wednesday, November 13. School will begin at 9:30. Buses run on the late schedule. Breakfast will be served at 9:10.
  • Be sure your students has his/her appropriate outdoor clothing for recess. (See first note).

As always, please contact me with any questions or concerns about FES. Have a wonderful week!

Late Start Wednesday Information

Preschool students will attend at their regular time as they do not have a late start.

Busses will run 1 hour and 25 minutes later than the regular school day.

Breakfast will be served at both at the elementary and classes begin at 9:30 a.m.

The building will be open at 7:55 a.m. if students need to arrive earlier than 9:15 a.m. Remind your elementary child to use the main entrance off of M-22 and to check-in at the office if arrival is before 9:15 a.m. each Wednesday.

If you plan on dropping your elementary child off earlier than 9:15 a.m. please call the elementary office at 231-352-7601 to assure we have enough staff to supervise students that need care prior to 9:15 a.m.

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.

Upcoming Elementary Events

Featured Students and Classrooms

Ask your child about the GaGa Pit at Frankfort Elementary. The Elementary school was able to fund this through the use of funds from MSU Extension and Fuel Up To Play 60! This has become a student favorite at recess time!
