FCS WEATHER ALERT!
ALL FRANKLIN COUNTY SCHOOLS CLOSED FRIDAY, JAN. 12
All Franklin County Schools will be closed Friday, Jan 12 in anticipation of the winter storm that is expected to arrive around mid-day Friday. After School Programs (“ASPs”) will be open as normal during the day, closing at 3 p.m. unless conditions warrant an earlier closing. All Friday evening and weekend activities, including athletic events and field trips, are cancelled.
All employees of the Franklin County Schools should report to their regular work site for a District Staff Day. Supt. Mark Kopp will monitor conditions throughout the day to adjust the schedule as conditions warrant.
The decision is being made this afternoon to allow parents and guardians as much time as possible to make childcare arrangements.
Supt. Mark Kopp said, “Our primary concern is when the predicted rain will change to ice and/or snow. The current forecast calls for that change to happen sometime between noon and 2 p.m. This is the worst time it could happen because it would not give us time to safely get all the kids and our staff home.”
Friday is NOT an NTI day.
