KUDOS!!

Since our return to school after Winter Break, the FPS COVID numbers have been fantastic! (Everyone, please knock on wood!)


Thank you ALL for your diligence in following the protocols that are proven to work in minimizing the spread of COVID-19. Because of you, FPS has been able to be in-seat, in-person for most of the year.


As we move forward, the hope is that we are able to finish the year strong academically as well as allowing our kids to have their spring sports seasons and other events!


Check out the FPS COVID-19 dashboard here https://www.fulton58.org/vnews/display.v/ART/5f3557e6a9aa0. The dashboard is updated each day school is in session.
