Message from the Principal
Good Evening Parents and Guardians,
We are pleased to announce the opening of a newly redesigned visitor and parent resource centers here at Frankford High School. Beginning on Monday, March 6th, students, parents, and other visitors will enter the building through the Oakland Street Entrance. The doors on the Oxford Avenue side of the building will no longer be utilized. This change was based on the feedback we received from parents and students alike.
The purpose for this move is to create a safer, more coordinated environment that brings the most utilized services to students, parents, and visitors to one convenient location that is more easily accessible to all those who utilize these services.
Thank you in advance for your support.
Michael J. Calderone, Principal
