Inclement Weather Procedures

  • When inclement weather comes our way, Franklin Community Schools is ready. There is nothing more important than the safety of our student so FCS has a plan that is executed every time there is consideration of school being delayed or closing due to weather conditions.
     
    Communication with parents is a very important part of the process when the decision is made to delay or cancel classes.  Here are ways to find out if school has been delayed or canceled.
     
    Blackboard Connect 5 - An automated message is sent out as soon as a decision is made.  If you are not receiving this phone call or if you need to change your contact information, please contact your specific building. 
     
    Media outlets - Check any of these local media outlets:  RTV 6, WISH-TV -8, MyINDY - TV channel 23WTHR - TV13, WXIN - Fox 59WTTV 4, as well as WKKG 101.5, QMIX 107.3, Korn Country 100.3WCBK 102.3, and Z99.5 radio stations.
     
    District Website - Visit the district site, www.franklinschools.org.  An announcement will be placed under the Headline section on the main page.   
     
    Social Media - Follow @myfcs on Twitter or 'like' Franklin Community Schools on Facebook to receive the most up-to-date information on delays and closings.
     
    In the event of a two-hour delay, school will start two hours after the normal start time.  This also means that the bus routes will run two hours after their normal start times.
