Franklin Public Schools: School Opening Update


Good Afternoon-

I wanted to take a moment to let you know that our first day of school was exceptional. We had minimal bus concerns and school started on time in all buildings despite the rainy weather. As our district administrators visited all of our schools, students were engaged in learning and happy to be back in school.

I am sorry the opening was marred by the need to send out the copy of the press release but we were contacted by the press and I felt parents needed to have the information before it went public. We strive to be transparent and honest in our communication as we partner with you in the education of your children. Also we wanted to assure parents that we are committed to a safe educational environment for all students.

Our investigation continues and we are planning to hold a  meeting on Thursday for FHS  parents/guardians (details will be sent out on Wednesday). Our Crisis Counselor Maria Trozzi will facilitate this meeting to help FHS parents address many  issues this situation has put in the forefront. Ms. Trozzi spent two days working with the faculty at FHS and gave them the tools to address classroom issues and concerns. The staff  were give the tools to keep students focused the process of education. I can report that today, education at FHS was orderly and students were engaged and excited to be back in school.

We were able to celebrate the "Last First Day" at the old FHS.

We want to thank the many parents who have sent messages of support as we continue this investigation. If any parent  or student has information to share please contact my office or Principal Light as we  are committed to a resolution of this situation.

Thank you for your continued support,
