Thank you!

Good morning! This is Karen Snethen calling (writing) to let you know that I am retiring at the end of this school year! June 30th will be my last day.

I feel very honored to have served Fulton Public Schools for the past 28 years and it feels like home. I have enjoyed (almost:) every minute and will cherish so many memories from my time here.

Thank you for your patience throughout the past nine years as I have communicated all sorts of things! Mostly, thank you for supporting FPS so we can do what is best for all the kids!

I am so #FultonProud! And, please remember - It's ALWAYS a GREAT day to be a Hornet!


FPS announces 2021-22 McIntire Elementary Principal

Fulton Public Schools is pleased to announce Ms. Erica Hogan as the McIntire Elementary principal for the 2021-22 school year. The Hogan name is no stranger to FPS or McIntire Elementary. Erica attended McIntire from kindergarten to fifth grade and graduated from FHS in 2006, and Erica’s father, Bob Hogan, served as the McIntire Elementary principal for 21 years before his retirement in 2008.

Ten years ago, Ms. Hogan began her career with FPS as a teacher at Bartley Elementary. She taught there for five years before becoming the Assistant Principal at Fulton Middle School, serving FMS for the past four years. Her love of serving this community and the Fulton School District is evident.

Hogan’s educational background includes a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education, a master’s in Administration, and a specialist degree in Curriculum Leadership, all from William Woods University.

Erica’s favorite thing about McIntire as she was growing up was the family culture among all staff, students, and families. She states that coming back to McIntire is like being “reunited with family and friends”.

The search for a new FMS Assistant Principal will begin immediately.

Return to Learn Plan Changes

Because the health and safety of our students and staff are the highest priority, we have monitored all the data and followed the direction of our local health officials throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

The data tells us that cases are now low in our community and in our schools which allows FPS the ability to change the mask requirement to highly encouraged when social distancing is not possible, beginning Friday, May 28, 2021.

We will continue to take precautions in our schools and workplaces, including keeping students in cohort groups to limit the number of exposures they have to others. We will not have visitors in our building during summer school.

We will continue to monitor the data about COVID-19 cases and exposures, as well as community data. If we see a significant increase, we will reverse this decision about masks and bring back this requirement and other mitigation strategies.

FPS is not ready to make a final decision about what our health and safety precautions will look like in the fall, but we will let everyone know as soon as we have that answer.

See all changes in the summary below.
