Franklin Public Schools: Remote Learning - December 17, 2020

December 16, 2020

Dear Franklin Families and Faculty/Staff,

We are monitoring the forecast very carefully. At this time, a long duration storm is forecasted with snow falling overnight into tomorrow and accumulating to between 10-15 inches. The snow is forecasted to be light and fluffy, which poses a lesser risk for power outages.

Given this forecast, Franklin Public Schools will have a Remote Learning day for all schools on Thursday, December 17, 2020.

In the event of a power outage, families should call their child's school office. VLA families should call the Superintendent's Office.  Voicemails will be transcribed into emails and forwarded to secretaries. Students will be marked present if they participate in school using asynchronous materials provided by their teacher.

If a staff member loses power, they should contact their building administrator. A building administrator will be in touch with families of their class(es) directly.

We will monitor power outages in the area and, in the event of widespread outages, many need to alter the plan and call a snow day.

We acknowledge that this may come as a disappointment to some who love the tradition of a snow day. At this time, we think it best to continue with the plans we set in place within the past few weeks for remote learning, a model we used early in the year with the idea that we could quickly move back to it during the school year. We will monitor the experience on remote learning days during snow events to inform future decision making.

Additional information about inclement weather can be found on our website.
