It takes a village.” With the Franklin High School Class of 2022 set to graduate this evening, they would like to take a moment to thank some community partners who made direct donations to the class.

Dear Franklin Families, I am sure you are aware of the heartbreaking tragedy that occurred in a Texas school yesterday afternoon. Every parent's worst nightmare came true for 19 elementary school students. In response to this, we have police officers at all 3 schools today for extra security and to reassure students. We also have our counselors on alert to help students who need assistance processing their emotions in response to this horrific and traumatizing event. Please feel free to reach out to the schools if you sense that your child/children need some support. As always, it takes a village to safely raise and educate our children and you are a valued member of our village. Sincerely, Dan LeGallo SAU 18 Superintendent dlegallo@gm.sau18.org
