Dear New Franklin School Families;

We hope this letter finds you safe and healthy. As we continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and its proximity to the county, the New Franklin School District has decided to extend our current closure through Friday, April 24th . Decisions of this magnitude are difficult and heartbreaking, but after consulting with other district administrators and our Board of Education we have determined
this to be the safest and most reasonable course of action. As in our current closure, all academic and extracurricular events, club activities, field trips, meetings, etc. will be cancelled and the building remains closed to most faculty, staff and guests.

We have received several questions in the last few days and will attempt to answer those questions in the bullets below.

**As of now, we will plan to return to school on Monday, April 27, 2020. Please be advised that this return day may be extended based on a number of factors. If we are forced to extend our closure, we will send a notice to you as soon as a decision is made.

**We will be collecting the first round of instructional packets for all students (grades K-12) in the elementary side circle drive under the awning on Wednesday, April 8th and Thursday, April 9th from 1:00-5:00 pm. All collected materials will be boxed up and placed in quarantine for a few days.

**If you would prefer, there are some other options you could use to deliver the packets:
1. You may scan and email the contents of your child’s packet rather than come to school. Students in grades K-5 should e-mail completed scanned packets to their classroom teacher. Students in grades 6-12 should e-mail completed scanned packets to their individual class teacher.
2. Photograph (from phone) homework, scan and e-mail to the teacher
3. You may also mail completed packets to school at: 412 West Broadway, New
Franklin, MO 65274.

**Second round packets will be sent out to all families via email. If you do not have a working email in our system, a hard copy of the packet expectations will be delivered or mailed to your home. 

Please contact your teacher, or building principal if a packet should be delivered to you.

**Unfortunately, we have decided to cancel prom for this year. Rest assured this was not an easy decision and we weighed a number of options, but all seemed to present more issues than solutions.

** Should our May 10th graduation be cancelled, we have set a tentative date for June 20th at 2:00 pm. Again, this date may change pending our current pandemic issues.

We hope this letter will help to answer your questions. We are here to make this difficult time as manageable as possible. Stay safe and well.
