Calling all volunteers...
French is actively seeking volunteers for the 2013-14 school year. If you are interested in being added to our list of volunteers, please visit the French website at french.wsd3.org and click on the "Volunteer Sign-Up" link under the Information tab on the far left of the page to register with our school. All volunteers must be registered with the main office so that we can track hours of service. Men are encouraged to register for the Watch D.O.G.S. program (Dads of Great Students). This is a new program geared at providing positive male role-models for our building and boosting male involvement in our school. Names of volunteers may be submitted for background checks dependent on number of hours served as well as areas of responsibility. Thank you, in advance, for supporting our school!
Kiss and Go Lane - Front Parking Lot
Thank you to all of our parents and community for making good use of our new Kiss and Go procedures for the front parking lot. During morning drop-off parents are encouraged to pull all the way up and fully to the right, letting students out safely on the curb.
Please note that the back parking lot is closed off to allow walkers safe access during both arrival and dismissal and does not have a Kiss and Go lane. Please click here for more information on our crosswalk and parking lot procedures.
Peanut Free Cafe Table
In response to the growing number of students with peanut allergies, French has introduced a "Peanut Free Cafe" table to the lunch room. Students with peanut allergies are welcomed to sit among friends and know that they are in safe surroundings. If you have any questions or concerns regarding allergies or any other health concerns, please contact our school nurse Cheryl Witzman at 391-3057.
Crosswalk & Parking Lot Guidelines
Crosswalk and parking lot guidelines have been updated for the 2012-13 school year. Please click here to see the updated page including a map of our surrounding streets and parking lots. Thank you for supporting the safety of our students, parents, and staff!
