A message from Principal Simpson…
 
I know there is a lot of concern and media coverage surrounding the Coronavirus. We have had instances other of flus and illnesses here at Ben Franklin, but nothing out of the ordinary. I want to assure you that our school is cleaned daily and we are using our Clorox sanitizing machine in classrooms and other areas of the school to try and keep the germs at bay. We need your continued help as well by keeping sick children at home until they are no longer sick. I know there also is some concern among parents about traveling for spring break, and I’d encourage you to go to the CDC  or WHO websites  to get accurate information on travel recommendations as well as other outbreak information.  
 
And, for the latest information from DCSD, go to their Coronavirus webpage.
