Student Injuries and Insurance

The District does not assume responsibility for accidents happening at school.  As a service to you and your child, BSD has joined with Myers-Stevens and Toohey to offer you access to a low cost student accident/sickness insurance.  Several plans are offered and rates for the entire school year start at around $22.00  To enroll, notify the school office and an informational packet will be give to you or sent home with your child.  


Join us for Drive-In Movie Night on Saturday, October 22nd!

Gates open at 6:00 PM; Movie starts when it gets dark (~7 PM)
$30 per car
Hot dogs, baked potatoes, popcorn, drinks (hot and cold), and candy will be available for purchase at the event.
You can pay on line or make a check payable to Franklin PTA and leave it in the envelope in the school office.  

This is another event that is fun for the whole family! For info, follow this link

Bookaneer Fair - Oct. 22-28

The annual Scholastic Bookaneer Fair is coming!

The book fair page has all the details of the fundraising event. Fun begins on the night of the Movie Night!  Visit the book Fair page for complete schedule of events.

Halloween Parade on the Field Friday, October 28th

Our annual Halloween Parade will begin at 9:00 AM on the field.


The Board of Trustees adopted AR6153, which states:  Parent volunteers will be required to have a fingerprint clearance on file to drive on school sponsored field trips.  Click here for information on where to obtain your fingerprints and the application.  Even if you were already fingerprinted by another agency (Girl Scouts, AYSO, CYSA, another school district, etc.) you still need to be fingerprinted for the Burlingame School District as sharing results with other agencies is illegal.  Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.


Please note - some event dates may change throughout the year.  Please check back to this website often or subscribe to iCal calendar feed for changes/additions and always refer to your Franklin Falcon Newsletter sent via email every Thursday.
