Franklin Public Schools: Rumors/ Pediculosis

Good Morning: 
It has come to our attention that there are a number of rumors circulating on social media that there has been an outbreak of pediculosis. Comments cite an epidemic of lice (pediculosis) in our schools that has gone unchecked. Please be assured that if the facts had any credibility we would communicate to our parents/guardians. 
As of this morning school health officials report there are no active cases of lice. From the start of the school year there were two reported cases - and only one at the elementary level. Both Cases were effectively treated medically and we can report no recurrence. 
We are not sure what motivated the circulation of these rumors but be assured there is no epidemic. We take public health concerns seriously and our protocols and practices are aligned with the Department of Public Health regulations and guidelines. 
Thank You
