The schedule's in the mail for hundreds of anxious teenagers.

Franklin Regional officials mailed schedules to every high school student on Monday, Superintendent Jamie Piraino said. Officials said Monday that they expect students will receive their schedules on Tuesday and Wednesday.

“We can roll out a full school day right now,” Assistant Superintendent Mary Catherine Reljac said.

Student scheduling fell behind schedule after implementation of the new student-information system was delayed in April. Administrators have been working throughout the summer to enter student information and program the new system.

Some seniors still have schedule conflicts with electives, Reljac said. Most problems concern elective courses scheduled for the second semester.

Those students received personal phone calls from high school administrators during the weekend, she said.

High school counselors will be available Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday to help students who have schedule issues, Reljac said.
