A reminder from the nurses

Bring a water bottle to school

  • It’s so important to stay hydrated. Dehydration can cause headaches and make it hard to concentrate. Get fresh water every morning and refill your bottle after lunch.

Wear your mask correctly

  • Your mask should be covering your nose and mouth at all times. If your mask is falling down stop in to visit your nurse. She will help you adjust it to fit better or give you a new mask if you need one.


  • If you are not feeling well stay home. We understand that navigating through the list of CoronaVirus symptoms can be confusing. If you have questions, call your nurse. We are happy to help.

Winter Weather is Here!

Please remember to send students to school with appropriate warm-weather clothing including warm coats, hats and gloves/mittens. As a reminder, students will typically go outside for recess when the temperature & wind chill are above zero so students will need to dress appropriately. Please reach out to our school staff if you need assistance in getting winter clothing for your student.

Thanks to Boone schools Resource Officer Ethan Bailey for stopping by Franklin for lunch! It’s great to see Officer Bailey making positive connections with our students!
