How Will Families Get Their P-EBT?

Families are not required to apply for P-EBT. Existing SNAP participants with children receiving free or reduced-price school meals will get P-EBT benefits automatically added to their family’s SNAP EBT card. Families participating in Medicaid or TANF who have children receiving free or reduced-price school meals will automatically mailed a P-EBT card to the address on file with the Department of Children and Families (DCF). Families who do not participate in SNAP, TANF, or Medicaid will automatically be mailed a P-EBT card to the address on file with the school. Families are urged to double check the address on file through their online DCF MyACCESS or school account to ensure that P-EBT has their correct address.

Please call Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF) at 1-833-311-0321.

Busing

2020-21 Academic Year

Due to Coronavirus related challenges, Franklin Academy will unfortunately not be able to provide bus transportation for the 2020-21 academic year. We plan on resuming our bus service for the 2021-22 academic year.

2021-2022 (and beyond)

Once your child has been accepted to Franklin Academy, you may request bus transportation during the online registration process. Transportation is available on a limited basis. Franklin Academy offers transportation for students who live between 2 and 4 miles from the campus. If you live within two miles of the campus, you must provide transportation for your child(ren).

Please enter your home address only. When transportation is assigned, a bus pass will be emailed. Bus passes for registered students will be emailed two weeks before the start of school. Bus stops are subject to change from year-to-year.

Parent Vehicles

Parents are welcome to drive their students to and from our campus. Franklin Academy utilizes DashPass as our dismissal system to manage pick-up and drop-off traffic. Detailed procedures on the arrival and dismissal processes can be found in the Policies & Procedures section of the website.

In the COVID-19 era of education, school safety protocols are paramount. DashPass is an easy, automated mobile platform to extend facility-wide security measures through the entire dismissal process. Learn more about DashPass here.
