Dear Franklin Public School Staff and Families,
The current weather predictions call for snow beginning this evening and continuing overnight. The snow is expected to impact our morning commute/arrival time to school. Based on the anticipated weather conditions and the current information, the Franklin Public Schools will have a 2-hour delay on Tuesday, February 28, 2023.
I have been in ongoing communication with the Department of Public Works and Facilities regarding their ability to treat roads and remove snow around our schools. This additional time will allow our DPW and Facilities Department additional time adequately prepare for safe arrival at school.
When Franklin Public Schools has a delayed opening, ECDC will have a cancellation/delayed opening as follows:
*The ECDC morning session will be canceled.*The ECDC full-day and extended sessions will delay opening by 2 hours. The delayed opening will NOT impact the afternoon session.
All before-school programs are canceled, and Solutions will follow the 2-hour delay schedule. Emergency busing will be in effect, and students walking to or from school will be offered rides by our drivers.
We will continue to follow tomorrow’s weather forecast carefully and reassess the conditions in the morning to ensure that we are prepared for school, to begin with a 2-hour delay.
If snowfall accumulates beyond capacity to clear for the opening of school, we will switch to a cancellation. We will make that call in the morning and notify staff and families no later than 7:00 AM. If you do not receive a cancellation notification by 7:00 AM, there will be only a 2-hour delay.
