Dear Franklin Families,

I am reaching out to you today with a couple of updates.  We had two reported student cases over the weekend, one at Franklin Middle School and one at Franklin High School.  Contact tracing and notifications have been completed.

I also wanted to inform you of the Governor's Order #89 requiring schools to open 5 days per week for in-person learning for families that want it by April 19th.  We have accelerated our planning to meet this timeline.  Additionally, we still will be offering fully remote learning to families that select this option.

In order to accommodate students attending 5 days per week, students will have 3 ft. distancing in the classroom, masks will be worn at all times in the classrooms with scheduled mask breaks throughout the day, buses will run with up to 2 students per seat, and lunches will be served with 6 ft. social distancing.

We have been collecting information from you regarding your student attending in-person or remotely since last week.  If you would like to change your student's status from in-person to remote or remote to in-person based on this new information, please contact the school office.

Please let me know if you have any questions,


Dan LeGallo
