Respect, Responsibility, Resilience
Every day at Fuller, our CORE Values, or guiding principles, drive our school wide culture. These core values are taught and then reinforced daily with every student. We expect all students to demonstrate Respect, Responsibility, and Resilience towards everyone and in every situation.

School Bus Reminder
Our bus drivers' main goal is to transport our students to and from school safely. If students are not being safe while on the bus or when they are entering or leaving the bus, they are jeopardizing everyone's safety and the school will be notified. If it is found that the student did violate the expectations, there will be consequences.
As a school, we will be reminding students through a PBIS lesson of our expectations when riding a bus. I would appreciate if families and caregivers could go over these expectations as well.
When riding a school bus,:
- the Bus Driver is the adult in charge and must be treated with respect and listened to.
- students must remain seated at all times when the bus is in motion.
- students must not scream, yell, or play loud music when riding the bus.
- students' hands and head must remain inside the bus (no hanging out of windows).
- students must not throw anything out of the windows.
- students must not yell at passing cars or pedestrians.
- students must enter the bus from the bus stop in an orderly and safe manner. Students should not walk into traffic or approach the bus before it stops and the doors open.

School Drop Off/Pick Up and Map
For the safety of our students, do not pass other cars when using the parent drop off/pick up line.
The construction team has been hard at work this summer preparing Fuller Middle School for our new school year. There have been major changes made to our outside areas. Fuller now has two turf fields, a basketball court, and a newly paved parking lot (with a new entrance/exit). Please use the map below to see where student drop off/pickup is located. Please remember to only use the designated area when dropping off or picking up your child; this is for the safety of all of our students. Students should only cross Flagg Drive at the marked crosswalks.
If you will be dropping off or picking up your child, please follow the traffic pattern. For the safety of all students, vehicles are not allowed in the circle in front of the school from 7:30 - 8:15 and 2:00 - 3:00. This is to allow the buses to safely drop off and pick up students. Students will be dropped off and picked up in the large parking lot nearest to the fields. Staff members will be present to assist students.
7th and 8th grade students who previously attended any Framingham Public School must bring their fully charged Chromebook to school on the first day. Once a Chromebook is assigned to a student, the Chromebook is their responsibility throughout secondary school (grades 6-12). Students are expected to be responsible for their Chromebook, to bring their Chromebook to school fully charged every day, and to bring their Chromebook to the school office if their Chromebook is not working properly (we will have it fixed and give a loaner to the student while it is being repaired).
We have a very limited supply of loaner Chromebooks, so these are only given to students whose Chromebook is being repaired. Middle School students are expected to be responsible for their Chromebooks and to be ready to learn at school every day.
I have also included a link below with a list of faculty who may be able to help you with specific social emotional or academic needs.
No Cell Phones in School
- If a student has their cell phone out or have earbuds/AirPods in during the school day, we will hold the cell phone in the office until the end of the school day.
- If a student continues to have their cell phone taken away, we will require a parent or guardian to pick up the cell phone from the school. The school will notify home.
Please help us keep your child focused on learning by either keeping their cell phone at home or talking to them about putting away their cell phone and earbuds/AirPods during the school day*.
If you need to reach your child, please call the main office at 508-620-4956.
If your child needs to reach you, they can come to the main office to call or text you.
*Unless a student is using a cell phone for medical reasons.
Please Review with Your Child
