We're excited to announce Graduation at Am Fam Field on June 20... but what about prom?

We realize how important this event is to our students, especially our seniors. FHS Administration is working directly with our Student Senate through frequent meetings to develop a list of student priorities and ideas for a modified prom event. Tentative plans will need approval and guidance from the City of Franklin Health Department, our district nurses, and our district administration.

FHS will provide updates when we have more specifics to share, including dates, times, and location.
