Winter Home Events on The Saber Roar YouTube Channel

Our Winter sports are in full swing. Home events are limited to four spectators for the home team (no visiting team spectators). All spectators need to be registered in advance by the player and each spectator must present an ID at the entry table.

Home events are live streamed on The Saber Roar YouTube Channel. You are able to view events after the live stream at the same locaton. Away events are live streamed based on the host school's technology preference - check the host school's athletic website for details.

January PSAT Test

Due to Covid, many Sophomores and Juniors were unable to take the PSAT test in October of 2020. College Board is offering a January test for this year only. The test will be on Tuesday, January 26th beginning at 7:20am in the FHS library.

The test is open to all sophomores and juniors on a first come first serve basis. Students will receive a sign up invitation in their email on Wednesday, January 5th. Space is strictly limited! Please reach out to Diane Gilroy or your student's counselor with any questions.

Please be sure to read the newest District Newsletter that comes out now every Friday. You can access all the issues here.

Snow/Cold Day Information

As shared in last Friday’s District Newsletter here, Franklin Public Schools will treat Snow/Cold Days as “No School Days” this year. When a decision is made to cancel school due to inclement weather, we will work to notify families before 6am. The following are the ways we communicate the closing and where you can expect to see information:

  • Parents and Staff will be sent an email and phone call alert.

  • Students will be sent an email at their @franklinsabers.org account (4K, 5K, & up through 12th grade)

  • Closing information will be posted to our district and school webpages (in the “News” feeds).

  • Closing information will be posted to our district social media channels (be sure to like or follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram if you don’t already!).

  • Closing information will be shared with local media so that our information is included in the weather updates that occur on local news.

  • Staff note: In some circumstances, there may be situations where district staff are required to or asked to report to the buildings and this would be communicated from a direct supervisor or through our internal email.
