Dear Franklin Families, I have been notified of 4 cases at the middle school, 1 staff member and 3 students (1 Pemi-Middle, 1 Pemi Prep, 1 Winni Middle). DHHS has informed us that they have identified 2 separate clusters (3 cases each) at the middle school which labels the school as in outbreak status. They conveyed that it sounds "scary" but it just means we have to ramp up on our masking in school. We will be asking all staff and students to mask up when 6ft. distancing cannot be maintained except for when consuming food and drink. This means that masks will be worn indoors at all times and outdoor mask breaks will be provided for students. I expect that this will continue until the holiday break. Please continue to monitor your child/children for symptoms and keep them home if they are sick. Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions. Sincerely, Dan LeGallo SAU 18 Superintendent dlegallo@gm.sau18.org

The good news is that there have been no reported new cases the last 5 days at the high school and students from the cluster have started returning back to school.
