Visitors & Volunteers

Franklin Public Schools values and encourages our parents and community members to volunteer in our schools. We believe that volunteers make a valuable contribution to our faculty, staff and students. To provide the safety for all of our students and staff, visitors must provide a drivers license or US government ID and volunteers must complete an application and be approved before working with our students.

Update as of 9/3/2021:  Visitors & Volunteers In Schools

In regards to visitors or volunteers, any person entering any school building during the school day when children are present for school is required to wear a mask, regardless of vaccination status. Masks should be worn at all times when in the building, and the visitor/volunteer should limit direct contact with others and maintain social distance (6 feet or more) when able.

Visitors and volunteers who are outdoors during the school day where students are present are required to wear a mask unless they have been vaccinated. Visitors or volunteers in the building after school, in locations where students are not present, are not required to wear a mask.
