Principal's Message

  • Principal Hudson

    Principal David Hudson


    I would like to take this time to welcome all cadets, staff, and parents back to the school year 2020-2021. I would especially like to say WELCOME to our new cadets that will be attending the Franklin Military Academy for the first time. This indeed is going to be a GREAT school year. The Franklin Military Academy’s website has been prepared in the hope that it will become a valuable resource for you and provide you with school news and information. This website has been developed to enable everyone to become familiar with our school, and procedures as we navigate to the virtual school year.

       At Franklin Military Academy, our staff set high academic standards for our students. Our staff works diligently to ensure that each child is working to his or her maximum ability. Parents, you must monitor your child's progress and communicate with their teacher. I am asking you to monitor and remind them of the following items as we navigate to our virtual instruction.

    • Grades
    • Attendance
    • Discipline
    • Virtual etiquette - Proper attire: No sleepwear, etc.  
    • When to use the mute button 
    • Online Safety: Please make sure cadets are not recording others and make sure they are not using other electronic equipment when academic activities are being taught - For Example - cellular phones
    • Communicating politely and always being respectful
    • Attendance is non-negotiable. RPS attendance rules will be enforced
    • Internet Safety – Only visiting school base sites

    The website contains information that is important and useful. I urge you to visit it daily. 

    Your middle and high school years provide you with a wonderful opportunity to discover your unique talents and gifts. Please stay safe and healthy at all times.

    We are excited to get the new school year underway! Although there will be many changes for this year and we will keep you updated.

    Each parent is requested to sit down with his or her child and discuss appropriate school and bus behavior. Please review the Richmond Public Schools Student Code of Conduct and Franklin Military Academy School-Wide Discipline Plan. 

    If you have not received your ASPEN log in, please contact the school so you can make sure you are always aware of your child's progress.  

    Parents and guardians, it is essential to become an active PTSA member! We hope you will get involved. Together, we can make a positive difference!

    If you have a concern at any time, please call. Let us continue to make this an excellent year for our school!

    Thanks for allowing me to serve as your child's principal.  

    Stay safe and we’ll see you soon!

"RPS Direct" Emails from Superintendent Kamras

  • RPS Direct Update - September 18 (PM), 2020

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, To all who celebrate Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, RPS wishes you a "Shanah Tovah Umetukah," a Good and Sweet Year! In my family, brisket is the go-to food for this holiday. Mine's been cooking all day; can't wait to hear the boys' verdict :). Thank you again for all the feedback about our virtual instruction. As I shared yesterday, we're drafting some adjusted schedules based on your input. We'll have details at Monday's School Board meeting. In the meantime, feel free to keep emailing any thoughts you have! As you have likely seen from my special RPS Direct messages, we've had a number of positive COVID-19 cases recently. These cases are a reminder that the coronavirus is still very active in our community, and we all need to take every precaution. A few reminders for RPS employees:

  • RPS Direct Update - September 18, 2020

    Dear #RPS Strong Family, I'm reaching out with this special RPS Direct to share that two RPS employees have tested positive for COVID-19. One of the employees is a staff member at Henry L. Marsh, III Elementary School. This individual was at Martin Luther King, Jr. Middle School on 9-11. The other employee is a member of the Transportation Team and was at the Belt Boulevard Transportation Office on 9-17. Both employees are in isolation, per CDC and local guidelines. At the direction of the Richmond City Health Department (RCHD), we encourage anyone who was present at Martin Luther King, Jr. Middle School or the Belt Boulevard Transportation Office on the dates listed above to monitor their symptoms and reach out to their primary care provider if they have any concerns. Individuals can also contact RCHD’s COVID-19 hotline at (804) 205-3501.
