  • Sports will continue throughout the closure. Home events are limited to (2) attendees. Fulton fans will utilize the bleachers and visitors will be in the balcony. Coaches will go over plans with athletes and parents. Coaches will offer virtual practices as well if needed.
  • The email from Dr. Crain with details is attached below.. I've also included the distance learning plan that was shared in August.
  • Fill out the form below if you have technology issues.
  • We are continuing with learning and assignments will be given and graded each day. Teachers will be calling if a student has not logged in or completed work.

FMS Daily Distance Learning Schedule

The schedule below is what we will utilize during the temporary closure. Your middle schooler can follow the schedule or work at their own pace. Due to teacher illness/special circumstances, some schedules will have to be varied. These teachers will share that information with you.

  • All instruction and assignments will be loaded into Google Classroom by 8:00 each morning. Teachers will provide videos of instruction so that students can re-watch as often as needed. We have utilized Google Classroom extensively this year, so students are very familiar with this platform.
  • Teachers have daily office hours to connect with students and families as needed.
  • Teachers will be available and offer optional Google Meets to support lessons. These are not required.
  • All middle schoolers should attend the daily advisory Google Meet if possible, unless there are extenuating circumstances. Students can turn off the video feature if they prefer.
  • For attendance purposes, students must log into their Google Classroom daily and complete their assignments.
  • We will break for lunch here at FMS at 11:25. Middle schoolers can eat, of course, whenever it works for you. There is information on grab and go lunches in the letter from Dr. Crain.
  • The distance learning plan below goes over more specifics.
