Dear Franklin School Parents,
Happy Tuesday! I hope that you had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. For those of you who have served in one of our military branches (either past or present), thank you for your service!
I am not one to usually admit defeat, but it appears at this time school will not re-open for the 2019-2020 school year. I know that this does not come as a surprise to any of you, but I was hoping that optimism would outweigh realism. Please know that even writing the words “school will not re-open” makes me very sad. There is nothing I would like more than to see students running around campus.
School will officially be closed on June 4th. The next two weeks is a great time to finish packets, online assignments and/or projects that have been assigned to students during this time of distance learning. We know that this year has been difficult, but families you have been wonderful. Thank you for partnering with us!
We have scheduled times for students to be on campus to pick up their belongings, yearbooks, return library books etc. We have staggered the times students will be on campus to ensure social distancing. Please adhere to the safety guidelines/protocols we have set in place in order to make this day happen. Although not ideal, we are hoping that having students return to campus (even for a short time) will bring some closure to this school year.
Please continue to monitor your email and school website for important messages and information. I wish all of you a wonderful and safe summer. I look forward to seeing everyone in the fall. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have concerns or questions. I can be reached at (530)822-5151 ext. 202.
