Franklin Public Schools: Schools Open Wednesday at Regular Time


Classes will resume on Wednesday February 4th as scheduled. Emergency transportation will be available for students that typically walk to school (not students who are typically driven to school). 
Please contact your child's school to discuss your arrival/dismissal plan. We need to obtain written permission of a parent/guardian to let children ride the bus. Please contact the administration of each school to discuss your plan. 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 allow extra time as roads are narrow and speeds should be reduced. There are massive snow piles at intersections so when making a turn use caution and reduce speed. We need to be vigilant as to avoid walkers, runners and other cars. 
Parking at FHS will be limited as the snow piles have reduced the available parking spaces. Carpooling is recommended. 
Thank you to the staff and administration of DPW 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. 
As we anticipate more snow before we see the tulips we appreciate your collaboration and assistance as we negotiate this winter. 
For your information: With these two additional snow days the last day of school is now June 25th - this leaves 3 days for additional snow closures before looking at reducing vacation periods. If we need to use vacation time it will be the April vacation.
