2020-2021 School Handbook

Sunday, November 22, 2020 – 7:15 p.m. (20-21 School Year Update #56)

Dear Families of Frankfort CUSD #168:

     This week will be brought to you by the letter “T” as it is Thanksgiving week, we will have Full-Time Remote Learning for two days, and we will have two days of meal distribution.

     As we just passed mid-term, students should be sure to engage with their teachers and their classes this week as we begin the march to the end of the first semester in December.  If you are behind, do all you can to catch up not just by completing assignments, but also learning from them.

     On another note, we will have Food Service Distribution for breakfast and lunch meals on MONDAY and TUESDAY of this week.  Pick-up will be from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon.  From now through December, we will be adding one more site for a total of SIX across the District.  Please remember that these meals are for all of our students and ALL children and youth, from birth to age 18, who live in our District.  You simply have to come up to the sites and request the meals.  For the process to go smoothly each day, those picking up meals must remain in their vehicles with a mask on until a staff person approaches and asks how many meals that you need.  They will then deliver them through your car window.

     The sites and directions include:

  1. Denning Elementary – Enter from 7th Street, turn south on Columbia Street, then turn left onto the gravel drive between the school and the playground on the north side of the school.  Watch for signage to stop and pick up food.  Follow one way signs to exit.
  2. Frankfort Intermediate / Central Junior High SchoolFIS will serve as the one stop site where you will enter from North Cherry Street into the main parking lot and follow around to the cafeteria door like we did last spring.  Watch for signage to stop and pick up food. Follow one way signs to exit.
  3. FCHS – Enter from East Main Street, turn north Locust Street.  Watch for signage near the northeast side of the building to stop and pick up food.  Exit any direction at the stop sign.
  4. Pershing (Corner of Country Club Road and Pershing Road) – A white Redbird bus will be parked at the south end of the Country Club / Pershing Road corner.  Park near the bus and an attendant to your car.
  5. Aquatic Center – A white Redbird bus will be parked in the West area of the Aquatic Center parking lot.  Park near the bus and an attendant will come to your car with the delivery.
  6. Orient American Legion Post 1961 Parking Lot.  Look for the truck or the bus.

     Until our next communication, we wish you a good night.

Sincerely,
Matt Donkin
Superintendent of Schools
