Benjamin Franklin School goes virtual for 10 days due to COVID spread | #coronavirus | #kids. | #children | #schools


Benjamin Franklin School, which serves students in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade in Franklin Heights, moved to virtual learning for 10 days starting Friday due to COVID-19 case counts. 

It’s the second school this week, and 11th this fall, in Milwaukee Public Schools to make the temporary transition. MPS schools are supposed to do so when 3% of the school population tests positive in a two-week period.

Franklin families were notified Thursday afternoon. The students will return to in-person learning Nov. 16. 

During virtual learning, families can pick up meals between 11 a.m. and noon from “Stop, Grab and Go” sites with no pre-order needed.

The MPS COVID dashboard shows 15 students and staff reported testing positive at Franklin in the past seven days.
