The Franklin County School District has decided that ESP will not

reopen for the Summer Program.

Due to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 virus and the impact that

CDC guidelines and Tennessee DOE restrictions and procedures

would have on the child care program and the ESP staff, a decision

was made to evaluate the possibility opening again in the Fall.


 The June graduation dates are tentative and will only be used as a backup to the previous date set in May.
