UPDATED Return to Learn Plans

What has been updated?


FPS feels the face-covering requirement will give us the best chance to be in school, in-person. We are all in this together and it will take everyone to make this successful #forOURkids.


Face Covering Requirement for students in grades 3-12; Strongly encouraged for PreK - 2. See guidelines on Page 13 of the District Return to Learn Plan below.


Virtual Education Enrollment has been reopened. THE DEADLINE IS TUESDAY, AUGUST 18 AT NOON. FPS must have time to get all Chromebooks ready for distribution and to get all students enrolled.


If you would like to change your enrollment back to in-person school, please call 573-590-8000.


If you would still like to sign up for virtual education through Launch, fill out the form at this link

Parent Tutorials

Feedback from surveys this summer indicated an interest in learning more about commonly used educational technologies such as Google Classroom and Google Meet. Teachers and staff met this summer to develop training materials. Additionally, tutorials over G Suite - Google Apps for Education, Remind, and SIS 360 have been developed to support the educational process. These can be found on the FPS website at www.fulton58.org or at the link below.
