FRANKLIN, Pa. (EYT) – The Franklin Area School District has announced Franklin Junior-Senior High School will be closed from Tuesday, October 26, through Friday, October 29, due to a “significant rise in student and staff cases of COVID-19.”

According to information released by the district, students from the junior-senior high school will learn remotely for the rest of the week, while the elementary schools will remain open for in-person instruction.

Officials say students will be required to follow their regular bell schedule and log in to their teacher’s Google Classroom to participate in a live Google Meet for each class and attendance will be taken.

The remote learning also includes students who attend the Venango Technology Center. Tech Center students will not travel to tech, but will access VTC classes via Google Classroom, as well.

All indoor athletic events and extracurricular activities are also cancelled and students will not be permitted inside the building during the closure.

Officials say the cafeteria will be offering grab and go meal pickup Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to noon. Meals will include both breakfast and lunch and can be picked up at the rear loading dock by the tennis court.
