PTO Manager is a web-based system used for managing directory information and mass email distribution to the Franklin community. Parents are able to login to PTO Manager themselves to input, edit and update information.
Parent volunteers will manage directory information in PTO Manager. Parents are encouraged to login and keep information updated. The
Release of Directory Information and School Email Acknowledgement form must still be signed for inclusion in the directory.
*Forms are provided in the Fall 2011 beginning of the year packet or download here.

PTO Manager is used to forward information from teachers, the Principal, administration and PTO. We encourage all families to provide at least one email and multiple emails (i.e. Mom, Dad, Grandparent, Nanny, work's email, etc.) are allowed and highly encouraged.
-Critical information will also be disseminated via hardcopy in your child’s home/school folder.
-The email distribution list will not be shared with anyone outside of Franklin.
-All school-wide emails are first approved by the Principal, Mrs. Youderian.
-Emails sent through the PTO Manager system will only pertain school relevant information.
-Emails will be utilized in LPS’s Alert System.
-Entering information in PTO Manager is for informational purposes only and volunteering is not required.
-The school’s monthly e-newsletter is distributed through PTO Manager.
-The PTO Manager email system adheres to the LPS District’s privacy standards, which means information in the “To” field of any email sent via this distribution list will not contain the email addresses of all who are receiving the email.
-The vast majority of parents do not have access to emails. Only select PTO members have access for volunteer-work efficiency purposes.

Remember to enter your phone number, address and spouse’s name for the School's directory.
-If you are not in the PTO Manager system, you may register and input your own information. Go to www.PTOManager.com, click Register, search for Franklin Elementary, and proceed to follow instructions.
-If you are already in the PTO Manager system, you may update your own information. For instance, if you receive emails from "FRANKLIN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL," your email is already in the PTO Manager system (however, new families, please enter in your directory information.)
Login by going to www.PTOManager.com and select Log In. If you have a password go ahead and enter your email and password. If you do not have a password or lost it, input your email under “Forgot Your Password?” and the system will automatically issue a password via email. ONCE IN PTO MANAGER, CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD TO SOMETHING MORE MEMORABLE.
2 - Update Student Information:
Student information in Step 3 under the My Information tab is needed to be included in the grade and teacher email lists. Please update this information by entering each Franklin student and selecting their teachers. If you wish to be on the Jill Maxey (GT Teacher) list, enter your child's name a second time.

Release of Directory Information and Franklin Email Acknowledgement*
*Form will be provided in the Fall 2011 beginning of the year packet. Return this form to the school.
I have 2 emails. How do I add a second email?
We encourage families to include as many emails as they’d like. For instance, work email, spouse, guardian, nanny, grandparent, etc. If your family has 2 or more emails you want included in the email distribution list, you may do one or both of the following:
- Other person’s email – Spouse, Grandparent, Guardian, Nanny – If your spouse (or anyone else) wants to receive emails, you’ll need to enter him/her as separate entry.
- 2nd or work email – If you have a second email you want included, you’ll need to enter yourself twice. Register as though you are “not in the PTO Manager system.” Enter your name and put the number “2” after your name.
Primary entry - Jane Doe - Janedoe@personal.com - log your volunteer hours under this one.
Secondary entry - Jane Doe2 – Janedoe@work.com - no need to include your address; HOWEVER; you must enter your children under Tab 3 to receive emails from teachers. Please email or call Julie Dillon with any questions about second emails.
