Governor DeWine announced on 3/10/20 that all schools will be closed for 3 weeks and will be re-evaluated after that. Franklin Local School District will follow that order and be closed Monday, March 16th through April 3rd. While we are closed, everyone is advised to not congregate together so the disease spread slows down. All athletic and theater practices will cease after tomorrow. Children can be carriers so they should avoid visiting with or staying with older adults who can easily contract the disease. Instructional packets will be sent home with students tomorrow. Grades 6-12 students will have access to some lessons that are downloaded to their iPads. Those links are also on our website under student links. This is an unprecedented global event. We can get through this together.
Philo High School proudly offers the following sports for its athletes: baseball, basketball, cheerleading, cross country, football, golf, soccer, softball, swimming, track, volleyball, wrestling, and club archery. The total athletic program is an integral part of the entire educational program at Franklin Local. We believe there are substantial educational advantages from a soundly conceived and executed program for the players, the student body, and the community. A profitable experience can be gained through athletic participation.
