School Closure: Thursday and Friday, February 14 and 15
Posted by District on 2/14/2019 1:00:00 PM
A series of recent bat sightings in and around the area of Franklin Jr. High School has led to the closing of school today. The school system’s maintenance personnel have been working to remove any bats seen inside the school and treat the areas to deter future entry.
School will remain closed on Friday, February 15,as a cautionary measure to allow maintenance staff to monitor the building before students return to class on Monday.
If you've been affected by a recent natural disaster, has someone called and asked you to verify your FEMA registration?
Multiple complaints have been filed by people who have been scammed by thieves pretending to be employees of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). These include survivors from Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria, as well as victims of the California wildfires.
Victims have received phone calls asking them for personal information--even though they didn't apply for FEMA assistance.
When victims do try to apply for FEMA assistance, they discover that someone has already applied using their names because they receive a "verification error."
People claiming to be FEMA inspectors have been asking to gain entry to damaged homes. These individuals wear a shirt or jacket with the FEMA name, but they do not possess a FEMA photo ID badge.
Inspectors ask for money before starting an inspection. (Federal and state workers will never ask for or accept money.
