Driver's Education Update: Parent's interested in Driver's Education for the week of June 29 - July 2, at this time they are still planning on having this class held, and if you are interested you need to register through the Nebraska Safety Center in Kearney. However, we did receive the following message about this class: The Safety Center will offer an in-person class at Franklin (if COVID-19 restrictions are lifted by that time). The students will receive 5 hours of driving time with an instructor. There will not be driving range exercises in Kearney however. If we are not able to offer in-person class at Franklin, the students will have the option of switching to a different class in another location later in the summer. They will still drive with an instructor in the area of the class chosen. Students will also be given the option to switch to an online class (not Zoom) which they complete at their own pace. They have 6 months to complete the online class. Once they have successfully completed the online class, they will be sent a link to schedule driving appointments with an instructor. The students may take the classroom portion of driver's education without a permit; however, they are required to have a permit by the time they do their driving with an instructor. Successful completion of both the classroom and driving portions of driver's education will still result in students receiving a waiver to use for their POP license at 16. The cost of the in-person and online classes is the same, $330. Please contact either the Safety Center or the School if you have any questions. Once we know more about the class being held in Franklin we will let you know.

Earlier this week, Gov. Pete Ricketts, directed schools statewide to operate without students in their buildings through Mary 31, 2020. He also announced extracurricular activities canceled and playgrounds closed since this is not a safe place for students during this pandemic time. Please help us in urging children and young adults to practice social distancing. Even though formal education in our building has stopped for the year, the opportunity to learn is continuing. Franklin Public Schools will continue with sending enrichment packets to our students throughout the end of the school year. Please continue to support your students in this continuity of learning. Questions rose as to why FPS chose to go with "enrichment packets" instead of e-learning. Internet accessibility in our area has always been a concern. The internet and cell phone companies that are offering free internet to students are the same companies that are not able to provide web or dependable service to Franklin before COVID-19. Many of the students we serve at FPS do not have access to internet services, and if they do, bandwidth and or speed is not adequate to perform studies. I have spent many hours on the phone, in zoom meetings and conversation with Governor Ricketts, Commissioner of Education, Dr. Matt Blomsted, school lawyer, and FPS Principals to gather knowledge and advice. These are trying times that this nation has never faced before, and I pray will never encounter in the future again. The decision to go with enrichment, right or wrong, is the decision that I felt would best serve the students unique to our school district. Equity and students’ needs are at the top of my list. Students will be promoted to the next grade when the 2020-2021 school year begins. Since beginning our meal program, we prepare 126 meals a day. School is the distribution site for students in Franklin. Staff members are making deliveries to homes in Upland, Riverton, Naponee, and Bloomington. If you would like to receive food and you did not sign up, please call the school at 308-425-6283 Ext. 30 and leave a message with your name, address, phone number of children and adults needing meals. Mark your calendar! Wednesday, April 8, from 8 am-noon, one person from each family will be able to pick up your students' belongings left at school. Please return any school items such as library books, calculators, band instruments, etc. Student belongings will be at the main entrance of the High School. A staff member will be present to help. Prom and Graduation are postponed indefinitely. When plans become finalized, we will post them. While this could be several months down the road, I urge you not to give up hope. FPS teachers have been busy working at school and home preparing enrichment packets, writing letters to students, working on curriculum, attending live teacher and zoom meetings. Please do not hesitate to call if you have any questions. 402-340-6103 Stay safe and healthy! I miss seeing all the students. Dr. Candace Conradt

At Franklin Public Schools, we want to assure families that we are taking all the essential precautions and we have protocols in place to respond to any outbreak of COVID-19 within our Franklin Public Schools Community. We have been working closely with the Two Rivers Health Department and the Commissioner of Education as they monitor the situation and we will follow their advice to maintain the health of our students, staff, and community. Although many schools near the Metro area have canceled classes we have been advised to continue to hold classes as scheduled starting on Monday, March 16. If you have a child with underlying health issues and you are worried about his exposure to the virus while attending school please contact the building principal or me. Finally, if your child is running a fever and not feeling well please do not send them to school. Dr. Candace Conradt

Attendance Reminder - Absences due to illness and medical appointments, when provided with a doctor note, are excused. If a student is ill but does not see a doctor, it is an unexcused absence. An absence not related to illness such as a family trip is marked "parent-approved" and is considered unexcused. To accurately record the absence and avoid truancy, notify the school before 9:00 am on the day of the absence. When a student reaches five unexcused absences, parents will receive an attendance letter. When a student reaches seven unexcused absences, parents will receive a second letter. At ten unexcused absences, a percentage of semester credit loss will occur at the secondary level from the semester grade. - A referral to the STARS Attendance program at both elementary and secondary levels will also occur. For students reaching a maximum of twenty or more absences will be referred to the county attorney. Loss of a percentage of semester credit at the secondary level, and the option of retention at the elementary level.
