FSSD to Remain Closed for the Current School Year

On Wednesday, Gov. Bill Lee recommended that schools remain closed through the 2019-2020 school year. Based upon Gov. Lee’s recommendation, Franklin Special School District (FSSD) announced they will be closed for the remainder of the school year.

Teachers and principals are working hard to provide families with the resources that you and your children need to learn from home. As the closure has extended, teachers are offering more and more opportunities to connect with students. As teachers explore the various FSSD-approved online resources and innovative ways to remain connected, they will notify you of those options. FSSD encourages parents to reach out to your children’s teachers whenever you, or your child, have a question about the learning packet or want to communicate other needs.
