Franklin ISD follows specific policies and protocols for students and staff who may potentially come into contact with any infectious diseases. Our district has been in contact with local health departments and is not aware of any such cases. In response to specific infectious diseases, we may ask new students enrolling in our district or students traveling or who may have relatives traveling from regions known to have been affected by a contagious disease to respond to health related questions. We will continue to work closely with our local, state, and federal public health authorities to continue to monitor new developments related to infectious diseases.
