• Franklin Middle School Policies

  • Id Badges

    For the safety of all Yakima School District's students, there is a District Policy that all staff and students must have their ID badges visible at all times while on school property or at school activities.

  • Dress for Success Code

    The purpose of the Franklin Dress Code is to foster a professional, safe, and respectful learning environment at school. We believe it is one more component of preparing students for success. Students who choose to dress inappropriately* will be asked to change. Shirt/pants will be provided by the office for the student to wear. Refusal to change is grounds for discipline.

    *Inappropriate clothing is any item deemed by administration as disruptive to the education process or in current use of local gangs.
