Franklin County Schools 2020-2021 Reopening Plan
Franklin County School District will return to a traditional schedule following the approved 2020-2021 school calendar. The first day of school is August 5, 2020. Our priorities are to provide a safe learning environment for all children and staff.
Franklin County Schools will focus on making student-centered decisions that are practical and feasible. District leadership will revisit the reopening plan frequently and regularly communicate with stakeholders if changes occur. Flexibility will be important as information related to COVID-19 is constantly changing. Potential short-term and long-term school closure will be based on the level of risk as determined by the district leadership.
Information for parents will be communicated prior to the start of school and will be updated regularly through Facebook, district and school websites, and phone calls. Parents/guardians are responsible for making sure your child(ren)’s school has the current contact information.
For parents who do not wish for their child(ren) to return to the traditional school setting in August, a virtual learning option will be available. This option will require parents/guardians to abide by a learning contract to ensure accountability if virtual learning is chosen. The Franklin County School District encourages each parent/guardian to make the best decision for their child(ren).
Parents/guardians must register their child(ren) for virtual learning with the Virtual Learning team at Franklin County High School (back lobby-gym entrance) on Thursday-July 16th, Friday, July- 17th, Monday-July 20th, or Tuesday-July 21st from 9:00-5:00.
