Good Morning Franklin Families,
I am writing to you today to update you on our staff vaccination efforts. We have scheduled 2nd dose vaccinations for our staff on Tuesday, April 6th and Tuesday, April 13. We will have 60 plus staff members receiving vaccinations on each of these days.
Several districts have run into issues with staff calling out sick the day after the administration of the second dose due to experiencing symptoms. This has led to either last minute closure of the schools or pivoting to remote status in the early morning hour before school starts.
In order to avoid the confusion of this scenario, I am notifying you in advance that we will be fully remote at all 3 schools on Wednesday, April 7th and Wednesday, April 14th. The days will run similar to our remote Mondays with as many as our staff as possible providing on-line instruction. Staff that are unable to provide on-line instruction due to illness will provide assignments to students for the day.
I wanted to give you advance notice of this so you could make the necessary arrangements for your students on those days.
I appreciate your understanding as we work to complete the vaccination of our staff members.
