Dear Franklin Families,

I hope you enjoy Labor Day weekend and are ready for your children to return to school on Tuesday.  We look forward to welcoming them back!  :)

I continue to monitor the data available on the status of the pandemic in the city of Franklin.  I have attached a Franklin Covid Metrics spreadsheet for your review.  This spreadsheet will be posted on the front page of our website and updated daily when the students return to school.  I will be using it to keep you informed as well as to make decisions regarding the targeted and universal use of masks in the schools if/when Covid cases occur.  I will be using the DHHS matrix to guide my decision making that was shared with you in our reopening plan last week and is also on our website at

A reminder that masks are mandatory on school buses per Federal mandate but are otherwise optional as we begin the school year next Tuesday.  

Please also remember to screen your children for symptoms each morning and keep them home if they are not feeling well.  

As always, I appreciate the cooperation and support of our families.  Please don't hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or feedback.
