10/12/2020 Reminder to all Parent's / Guardians: Franklin Public Schools is currently in the Yellow Zone on our Back to School Plan that was released at the beginning of the school year. This plan can be found on our school website. Please call the high school office if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you for your support and understanding as we do our best to proceed through this pandemic.
On Monday, October 12 we will be welcoming back our PK-12 students who have been on a remote learning schedule for the past two weeks. Students will be required to wear masks as this will give us much greater control of reducing quarantines for both our staff and students. Masks will be required on busses. Students were sent home on the busses wearing masks on Friday, September 25th. It is the parents responsibility to take their child’s temperature at home before getting on the bus. We will continue to take temperatures as students enter the school building every day. All public school property such as books and devices including chargers need to be returned to school on Monday. As we head into next week, I do want to thank everyone for your support and cooperation as we continue to make our way through this school year. It is hard to believe, but we are quickly approaching the end of the 1st quarter. While there have been some daily obstacles to overcome, we will keep moving forward to provide the best educational opportunities for our kids! Have a great weekend! Dr. Candace Conradt

Several students received zeroes last week for not completing assignments in your non-core classes. The end of the quarter is Wednesday, October 14th and we will have a down list go out at the end of this week. So, please do your best to get your work done for all of your classes. Finally, reminder that if you are having technology issues make sure you are letting Mr. Kobza and/or the main office know.
