The Franklin Special School District is committed to providing the best educational learning experiences possible for every student as we work to mitigate the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our school and district leaders continue to collaborate with local and state health officials and are mindful of the recommendations that come from national experts as well.  Our decisions are rooted in the CDC's guidance that school districts implement the COVID-19 prevention strategies based on community transmission levels, vaccination coverage, and local policies and regulations.

This page will serve as a clearing house for COVID-related information from the FSSD. The district will continue to communicate directly with parents through Blackboard Connect via email and phone messaging. If you are not receiving this information, please send an email to your school office staff with updated contact information. You may also check this page and our our social media sites for updates.

Our FSSD Together  theme for 2021-2022 reflects a balance between maintaining the safety of students, staff members, and families in the face of this continued public health uncertainty, while also delivering high quality teaching and learning experiences that focus on excellent and equitable outcomes for all students. As new information is available, or if public health recommendations for schools change, we will keep our community informed.

Student Health Reminders

Student health is our highest priority and providing all of the necessary supports so that students can remain in school and learning is what drives all of our decisions.

Each school has a licensed school nurse to ensure these goals can be achieved. Guided by national health recommendations, and in consultation with the Williamson County Health Department, the FSSD uses Illness Guidelines to assist in determining if a student should be sent to school. In some cases where symptoms might mimic COVID-19 or other contagious illnesses, the guidelines suggest that students remain at home to watch for worsening symptoms and consult a healthcare provider.

Keeping students healthy and learning is a combined effort between families and the district. To be successful, families are asked to be aware of the following:
