Does your child attend Franklin Elementary, MAC, or Head Start? Does your commute include Columbia Avenue? Important info you need to know before Monday

Post Date:03/29/2019 5:30 PM

Starting at 4:00 pm today, Cannon Street will be closed for repairs to a sinkhole.
◾Starting Monday, parents dropping off at Franklin Elementary will enter from Battle Ave. and exit using Fairground St. to Columbia Ave.
◾MAC and Head Start students will be dropped off and picked up at the south entrance (like Summer MAC) of the Franklin Special School District Annex and exit via Fairground St. to Columbia Ave.

Franklin Police Officers will be on hand to assist with expected congestion. Officers will, however, not be able to alleviate it. Parents, as well as Columbia Avenue commuters, should allow extra time for expected delays.

Comenzando el lunes, 1 de abril, la Calle Cannon estará cerrada al tránsito escolar. Todos los carros

tendrán que entrar por la Avenida Battle y salir por la Calle Fairground hacia la Avenida Columbia.

Estudiantes de MAC y Head Start deben bajarse y ser recogido por la entrada sur (como se hace para

MAC en el verano) del Anejo de FSSD.
