Franklin Public Schools: Schools Open Thursday


Classes will resume on Thursday as scheduled. 
Emergency transportation will be available for students that typically walk to school (not students who are typically driven to school). As sidewalks are not plowed this service will be in place for the remainder of the week. 
School parking lots and walkways are plowed however, due to cold temperatures the surface is slippery so please take appropriate precautions. 
For FHS students who drive to school please make sure to allow for extra time as roads are narrow and speed should be reduced. There are massive snow piles at intersections so when making a turn use caution and reduce speed. Parking at FHS will be limited as the snow piles have reduced the parking spaces in all schools. Carpooling is recommended. 
We will ask the police department have an extra presence at FHS/HMMS/Oak tomorrow to help manage the traffic. 
Thank you to the staff and administration of DPW, Police, Fire and Facilities- these individuals worked 24/7 to maintain the roads and make sure the community was safe. Often their dedication and commitment goes unnoticed but their efforts are appreciated. 
For your information:
With these two snow days the last day of school is now June 23 (ASMS June 24) - this leaves 5 days for additional snow closures before looking at reducing vacation periods. 
With additional snow predicted for Friday and next Monday please pay close attention to weather forecasts.
Thank You
