Bus routes for the town of Franklin for the 2019-2020 school year have been posted on the FPS Transportation Website and are available here. Bus passes that have not been picked up will be sent home on the first day of school. If you have any questions about the Franklin Bus Routes, please contact Denise Johnson, Coordinator of Transportation for the Franklin Transportation Department at 508-553-4815.
In preparation for the first day of school; please be sure to review the most up to date BFCCPS Regional Bus Routes linked below. Please note that since the original posted list that routes have been modified (some stops were added, some stops were moved and an entire new route was added on the way home.)
The timing on the first few days of the bus routes can be in flux as drivers and students adjust to the new schedules. We ask you to be at the bus stop at least 7-10 minutes before the planned stop.
The following are instructions when parking in the lots while waiting for the bus for BFCCPS.
*Please note, children are to stay close to parents and not roam in the parking lot. Playing with balls or playing tag are not allowed. Please walk your child to the door of the bus once it has stopped. Food of any kind is not allowed on the bus, as many students have allergies.

School Dismissal Manger
Using School Dismissal Manager with your desktop or smartphone browser, you can quickly and easily update instructions when your child’s dismissal needs to be changed.
The easy-to-use mobile and desktop interface will allow you to make these changes in advance or for the current day. You can also report absences, early dismissals, and even schedule recurring dismissal instructions for after-school activities such as Art Club, Drama Kids, Science Club or Lego League on the desktop version. Free apps are also available for Android and iPhone users.
School Dismissal Manager provides us with a more organized and efficient tracking system for afternoon dismissals. We ask all families to update their dismissal instructions using School Dismissal Manager by 9 am on August 26th so we can ensure we have accurate information on how your child(ren) should be sent home.
When creating an exception for the current day, please note that the cut-off time is 1:59 on regular days and 10:59 on early release days. In order to ensure an accurate and safe dismissal, it is our expectation that all changes are made on the system before the daily deadline. In the event of an extreme emergency you can contact the school office after the deadline to make any changes for the current day.
