By MyFM's Rick Michaels - The Franklin School District will take the next step this week in moving forward with hybrid learning, welcoming some students back into the classrooms. The Superintendent’s report to the School Committee last week says the target date is today for Grades 2, 3 and 6 to start hybrid learning after the district used COVID-19 health metrics of the last three-weeks, for the town, the county and the state. The health metrics supported the district going to in-person or hybrid learning. Franklin students in Grades 4, 5, 7 and 8 will begin hybrid learning next Monday, which would leave high school students still in remote only learning. A new target date for Grades 9-12 transitioning to hybrid will start on Monday November 2nd with the student body being divided into three-cohorts, each attending school for one-week and then learning remotely for two-weeks.
