Dear Ben Franklin Families,


Ben Franklin experienced a drinking water main valve break overnight.  Several areas of the building experienced half an inch of water.  The Library Media Center and the art room were the most greatly impacted areas. Water has been removed and the areas are being dried and cleaned. Crews will be working through the weekend to ensure that the school will be ready for our students on Monday morning.  Serv Pro will certify the environmental conditions upon completion of their work this weekend. The electrical system was not impacted and the air conditioning will be working for the start of school.  

  • School will be in session on Monday.  

Thank you in advance for your understanding of this unfortunate situation.
