Franklin Public Schools: Update - there is school Tuesday, Feb 10th


Dear Franklin Families and School Staff,
After consulting with the DPW and Facilities Department I anticipate that schools will be open and in session as scheduled on Tuesday February 10th.  
Roads and parking lots have been plowed and treated and are in as good shape as can be expected given the record-breaking snowfall we have experienced in the past couple of weeks. 
Should anything change with this crazy New England weather that requires a cancellation or a delay, I will send something out by 5:00 AM tomorrow morning.
We will continue to make emergency transportation available for students who typically walk to school.  Please contact your child's school to discuss your child's arrival/dismissal plan.  
Please remember that we need to obtain written permission from a parent or guardian in order to let children ride the bus who ordinarily do not do so. As sidewalks are not plowed, this service will be in place for the remainder of the week.
As always, parents are in the best position to make decisions about how your child will get to school.  With this unprecedented additional snow piled onto the already existing snow, the snow banks are quite high and roads are slippery so please take extra precautions.  
For FHS students who may be driving to school, please allow extra time as roads are narrow and speed should be reduced.  Please be vigilant for pedestrians and other cars.  Parking at the high school continues to be limited based on the amount of snow, and carpooling is recommended. 
Many thanks to the DPW and Facilities staff and administration who continue to work tirelessly to maintain our roads and school campuses to ensure the safety of the Franklin community.
Thank you for your continued patience and support during this unprecedented winter.
Sally Winslow
