A message from FRANKLIN PUBLIC SCHOOL DISTRICT
We have been following weather forecasts and here is the latest report for your review. Based on current predictions we will be having school. DPW will be treating roads so that should mitigate some of the icy conditions. We advise parents of HS students who drive to consider dropping students off at school. Please be mindful that roads/ parking lots will be slick.
FYI If conditions change overnight there may be a need for a school delay. Thank you and apologies for having to continue to bother you with weather communications when it is almost Spring. Think Rain !
