Good Morning Franklin Families,
I am reaching out to you to let you know that we had 2 positive staff cases and 1 positive student case at Franklin High School over the weekend. We continue to contact trace and make notifications.
In the contact tracing process this weekend, the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has identified a "cluster" at Franklin High School. A cluster is defined as 3 or more cases connected to the school setting. In our case, they have identified 3 of our cases to be connected to the school setting.
In consultation with DHHS and the Department of Education we will be going fully remote on Tuesday at Franklin High School so we can be thorough and complete the contact tracing on these cases.
I will continue to monitor the situation in conjunction with DHHS and the Department of Education and let you know tomorrow afternoon where we are for Wednesday at the high school.
Please remember to be vigilant in our mitigation strategies, social distancing, wearing of masks, and frequent handwashing.
SAU 18 Superintendent
