Student and Family Assistance Program Launched
CASES ON THE UPTICK: We have been experiencing more positive COVID-19 cases this week amongst students and staff across the district. This is consistent with what is being seen in and around the community. We ask families to please be diligent in keeping your children home when they are experiencing symptoms or are sick. Please continue to report any symptoms or sickness through the online absence reporting form process.
TESTING CHANGES: Walk-in on-site testing through FPS is no longer available for students and their family members. Students and their family members who are at home and need access to testing are recommended to visit a community testing site. For more information, please visit the Summit Clinical Labs website or the DHS Community Testing page here. Students who are present at school and in need of access to testing can be tested in their building through the ongoing partnership between FPS and Summit Clinical Labs. For more information about testing, click here.
As shared in this update from the March 11th Newsletter, we will resume publishing dashboard updates if the Milwaukee County rating moves to high.
Saber Center Community Feedback
The Saber Center for the Performing Arts will be opening up to more community-focused events and activities and Franklin Public Schools is seeking feedback from the community on what types of events are desired at the Saber Center for the Performing Arts. To access our Saber Center Feedback Survey, you can click/tap the associated QR code, scan the code with your mobile device or go to tinyurl.com/scfdbk in your browser. If you know community members that are not parents in the school district (and do not directly receive our newsletters), please pass them the survey so they can offer feedback too! The survey will also be included in our OPENING DOORS insert in the City Newsletter that goes out to all city mailboxes around May 20th. The survey will close at the end of May. Thank you for taking the time to offer feedback that will impact the programming we can offer for the community.
