Mission Statement


The Mission of the Franklin County School System is to educate and prepare all of our students to meet the highest state and national standards and to live and work successfully in a dynamic and challenging world.

We are seeking some feedback in regards to the development of next year’s school calendar.  Please click on the link below to complete the survey:




Dear Parents,


In case school is called off over the next few weeks, we are planning to use the same approach we did last year in making up days. Teachers and students will have assignments to complete over any days we have to miss. We will utilize this work to excuse all the student absences as well as allow the teachers to count it as a work day.


In order for this to be successful, the work must be completed to the best of every student’s ability to do so. The decision as to whether the work is acceptable belongs to the principal and teachers. Your student should know what to do and the standard it must meet just as any other homework they have been assigned.


Literacy is our focus this year and independent work is an ideal way for students to put their new literacy skills into practice so you can expect reading and/or writing to be part of any assignment they may bring home.


If school is out for the weather, please stay home, stay safe, stay warm, and keep on learning!
