Featured Event: Back To School Night!

Please join us Tuesday, September 8th at 5:30p.m. in the Fulmore Gym for Back to School Night. This is a great opportunity to meet your child's teachers, network with other families, and be part of the Fulmore community.

Advanced Academics Survey

AISD is soliciting parent input regarding Advanced Academics opportunities in South Austin. We will have the survey available in the library during Back to School Night and are including it here in case you would like to provide your feedback earlier

Buses

Thank you to all of our bus riders for a great first week. We are communicating with transportation about our buses that are consistently running late so that they can work on adjusting routes.

Please continue to communicate any bus concerns with the magnet office.

AISD Transportation: 512-414-0238

Late Activity Buses

Late buses are available and leave school at 5:30 p.m.

· Students should be given a pass for late buses from the teacher of the after school program they are attending.

· The Late Bus Activity Sign is outside the building right before the blue gates in the back of the school and in the Magnet office.

· In order to better assist our students please have students know or write down their address, the nearest AISD School to their home, and a good phone number for a parent or guardian.

Reminders to Parents

To enhance safety of students and staff, AISD policy requires all visitors to show a picture ID. A visitor’s pass will be given to all visitors in the main office not in the magnet office.


Daily attendance is a high priority at Fulmore!

If a student is absent please do the following:

1. Report absence to the attendance clerk at 512-414-3439 before 10:00 a.m.

2. When returning to school, students should check in to the attendance office to receive a pass to class.

3. Within the next three days send a note with student explaining absence including the following:

Student first and last name, grade level, date of absence, parent signature, reason for absence, and phone number to reach parent.

***Notes must be submitted within three days for absences to be amended***

***ONLY THREE notes per semester written by parents will count as excused absences. You must provide a doctor’s note or additional documentation for excessive absences***
