Dear Franklin Families, I hope you enjoyed the long weekend. Below are the positive Covid case totals at each school over the last 4 days (Saturday through Tuesday) 9 students, 7 staff at elementary school 3 students, 1 staff at middle school 3 students, 2 staff at high school I anticipate that DHHS will be declaring an outbreak (2 clusters of 3 cases each in the school) at the elementary school and high school so I am moving all 3 schools to 6 foot masking starting tomorrow which essentially means that students and staff will need to wear masks indoors at all times unless they are eating or drinking or 6 feet away from others. (middle school is already at 6 feet). Mask breaks will be provided. As we are seeing this uptick in cases at all 3 schools it is essential that if students are sick that they stay home from school. Please continue to screen your child/children for symptoms each morning. If your child tests positive, please inform the school nurse as quickly as possible and they will provide guidance to you. Thank you for your continued support. Dan LeGallo SAU 18 Superintendent dlegallo@gm.sau18.org
