Ben Franklin Academy School News


The school is busy making final preparations to open and welcome back students, faculty and staff the first week in August. Faculty and staff will start the new school year on Monday, August 3, with three days of pre-panning, and students will return on Thursday, August 6. Teachers are already hard at work with their training on the Blackbaud Learning Management Program, which should simplify communication among students, faculty, and parents. The LMS should make it easier to toggle back and forth between in-person and remote learning, if necessary. We must all be prepared for ongoing disruption in schools during this time of uncertainty. Please review Ben Franklin Academy's re-opening plans on our website here.
