Dear Franklin Families, I have received updated mask guidance from the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) regarding outdoor mask usage. I have included a link below to their latest guidance document. Please refier to this website for details. https://www.dhhs.nh.gov/dphs/cdcs/covid19/documents/school-call-presentation-060221.pdf The guidance recommends that masks no longer need to be worn outside in the school setting regardless of a student or staff member's vaccination status (slide 11 of the guidance document below.) The guidance does suggest we continue to social distance outside to the extent possible. Effective at the end of the day today, per the DHHS guidance, we will no longer require staff or students to wear masks while in an outdoor school setting. This includes recess, athletics, after school outdoor events such as the prom this Saturday night, outdoor graduations, parades etc... Our mask policies remain unchanged in the indoor setting. Masks will still be worn by all indoors when 6 ft. distancing cannot be maintained. Please let me know if you have any questions. Sincerely, Dan LeGallo SAU 18 Superintendent
Good Afternoon Franklin Families, As you are aware, the Class Day Parade was canceled this year due to the pandemic. The primary concern, confirmed after consultation with the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), was the need to fill our buses to transport our elementary and middle school students to the high school and back for the parade. I am pleased to let you know that at the School Board meeting last night, the Board approved 3 parades, one at each school, to celebrate our student's achievements this school year. This has been approved by DHHS as well as by the Franklin Fire Chief and Police Chief. The middle school parade will be on Thursday, June 10th at 12:00. The parade route will be from the school, down Sanborn Street to Bessie Rowell Community Center and back up to the school. The elementary school parade will be on Monday, June 14th at 1:00 on the school grounds. The high school parade will be on Wednesday, June 16th at 12:30. The parade route will be the traditional Class Day parade route from the high school down Central Street to Greviors Furniture and back to the school. I welcome you all to come out and celebrate the 20/21 school year with our students and staff at these events. Sincerely, Dan LeGallo SAU 18 Superintendent

Good Afternoon Franklin Families. I have been notified of a student at the elementary school testing positive today for COVID-19. Contact tracing and notifications have been completed. I hope everyone has a safe and healthy weekend.
Good Morning Franklin Families, I am writing to you today to update you on where we are with changing the schools start and end times for the 21/22 school year. After surveying our families earlier this year and answering the questions that were submitted from the survey, I will be recommending the changes below at the School Board meeting on Monday night. Elementary School: Drop off 7:15 Instructional day start 7:40 Dismissal: 2:00 Middle School: Drop off 8:05 Instructional day start 8:25 Dismissal 3:05 High School: Drop off 8:10 Instructional day start 8:30 Dismissal 3:15 Based on the feedback we received from our survey, I am working with the Rec Center and the Boys and Girls Club to make sure we have quality child care available for our families that need it. We also are planning an after school tutoring program at the elementary school and a before school tutoring program at the middle school to address learning loss for students due to the pandemic. Please know that this change is supported by research and is being considered to assist in our efforts to improve student achievement in the Franklin School District. As always, please don't hesitate to reach out to me with questions or feedback. Sincerely, Dan LeGallo SAU 18 Superintendent
