North Franklin School District has a number of staff who have been in close contact with a positive COVID-19 case. Though these staff members have not tested positive, they are required by the Benton Franklin County Health District to get tested out of an abundance of caution. In order to accommodate time for testing to be completed and to limit possible exposure, all schools will pivot to distance learning effective tomorrow, Wednesday, November 18th through Friday, November 20th. The schedule for distance learning will follow what was in place prior to October 1st when we started the hybrid in-person model. Please note that the close contact was outside of the school district, but we are required to follow the direction from the Benton Franklin County Health District. You will be receiving additional communication from the individual schools. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact your individual school or our central office.
