Franklin: How some teachers tried to get around quarantine guidelines, and why it was stopped

Journal-News |

Some Franklin City Schools high school teachers had students move around frequently in classrooms to skirt quarantine guidelines, a practice that parents and health experts worry could expose more people to COVID-19, the Dayton Daily News has learned.

Franklin Superintendent Michael Sander said Thursday that he and the high school principal were unaware of the practice until Wednesday and immediately told teachers to stop.

After being contacted by the Dayton Daily News and parents, the Warren County Health District sent an email on Thursday morning to all school superintendents in the county advising against moving kids around in a classroom every 14 minutes to avoid quarantine.
