    Franklin Families and Students,


    This week we kicked off our first week of  academic content and instruction.  Students and teachers began working hard to regain academic stamina as we adjust to our new instructional model and weekly schedule.  It was enjoyable to sit in classes and hear about students' experiences.  I appreciate how our students are showing up and making every effort to attend class and connect with their classmates and their teachers.  The good thing moving forward is that our weekly schedule will remain consistent, aside from four day weeks.  The routine will allow students and teachers to get into the rhythm of school with teaching and learning; and that is when the  innovation and  the “Aha” moments combine with the moments of brilliance, which truly is the joy and beauty of education.  


    COVID-19 Case Protocols - NEW

    As per PPS Policy it is the expectation that, to the greatest extent possible, all suspected or confirmed cases of COVID-19 or instances of COVID-19 exposure (that is, people exposed to other people with known or suspected COVID-19) in PPS employees, students, contractors, and visitors to district sites be reported to PPS through the COVID-19 Case Protocol to ensure that precautionary steps can be taken to prevent the spread of the virus.

    Any adult or student that is displaying symptoms, will be  asked to go home and to contact their health care provider.

    Instances of COVID-19 exposure (that is, people exposed to people with known or suspected COVID-19) is defined by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) as, someone who was within 6 feet of an infected person for at least 15 minutes, regardless of whether either person was wearing a mask or other personal protective equipment.

    Student/Family Responsibility

    Student/family alerts school by contacting a Vice Principal or Principal.

    School Responsibility

    An Administrator and/or the  School Nurse will speak with a parent/guardian  of the student who has the presumptive/confirmed case or close contact. The parent/guardian will be asked  for their consent to share their contact information with a MESD Nurse Consultant. The MESD Nurse Consultant may want to discuss more details directly with the individual in order to determine next steps.

    Franklin Focuses on Equity 

    Each week we will share, highthight, or introduce a concept or topic related to our climate and equity work.  This section will allow us to learn, use common language and create an opportunity to discuss climate and equity related topics; allowing us to collectively grow as a school community.

    At Franklin HS we celebrate the rich diversity of our school community. As our Mission Statement shares by “providing a diverse and supportive environment, our educators, families, and community prepare our students for a strong future and appreciation for lifelong learning and service.”   

    This week we celebrate two occasions:

    • Latinx Heritage Month is a period from 15 September to 15 October in the United States for recognizing the contributions and influence of Hispanic Americans to the history, culture, and achievements of the United States. 

    • Rosh Hashanah begins the evening of Friday, September 18 and ends the evening of Sunday, September 20.


    Franklin STRONG,

    Chris Frazier
