Weekly COVID Update

SPS has updated the middle and high school COVID-19 notification process in alignment with guidance from Public Health. Positive student and staff COVID cases are updated weekly on our district dashboard. Remember, the number of confirmed cases represent community transmission; exposures may not have occurred within our schools. The school nurse or designee will notify families when their student with a medically fragile or complex health condition has been exposed to COVID-19 in the school setting.

This week Franklin HS had 8 confirmed cases.

Information on what you can do to protect yourself and your student from COVID-19 is available here.  

If there is a significant increase in cases at our school or an outbreak, more detailed information and resources will be communicated. The district’s COVID response team continues to work in partnership with Public Health to monitor cases and mitigate transmission.   

Summer Programming

  • Franklin will be an SPS site for summer credit retrieval. Please reach out to your counselor for information.
  • Franklin will be a host site for Summer Skills Center classes. Applications are now open. See the summer schedule and link to course descriptions and locations here: https://skillscenter.seattleschools.org/summer/

Right Now Needs

If you or your scholar need any support with meeting basic needs, food, clothes, school supplies, rent or utility assistance etc. please reach out to Agnes Leapai at atleapai@seattleschools.org.
