Dear Franklin Families, 

As summer is in full swing, we are planning for the 2021-2022 school year. The “safe return plan” for FCS was on the June School Board agenda but we did not get a chance to discuss it. So I am happy to share it now; this fall, masks/facial coverings will be optional.  

I understand that we’re not out of the woods completely, so FCS will have safety measures in place that will be shared throughout the summer. In addition, the district will continue to work with local officials if our course of action needs to be altered.   

As I have often said, parents are the best decision-makers for their children.  I hope this update helps you begin to plan for the upcoming year. Please enjoy the rest of your summer.  I will continue to share information as it becomes available; however, in the meantime, reach out with any questions.
