For the parents and patrons of the Fulton School District
January 8, 2021
A message from the Superintendent
To say the least, it has been an interesting first semester at FPS! We want to thank you for your cooperation and patience during this crazy year. The vaccine provides us with a light at the end of the tunnel, but it will still be some time before we see the effects. We will continue to follow the latest guidelines from our local health department and monitor our numbers for any need to adjust.
Please note we are entering the winter weather season and I encourage you to make sure you are receiving notifications in the case of changes due to inclement weather. More information can be found below.
As always, It's a great day to be a Hornet!

Inclement Weather - School Cancelation and Transportation Information
School Closing Information
Winter weather will be here before we know it, and the Fulton Public Schools are preparing for the inevitable snow day. Officials consider many things when making decisions on inclement weather days; however, the final decision is always determined by what is best for the students. Student safety is the top priority of our school district.
Cancelation of School
As soon as the decision is made to cancel school, the district will launch the School Messenger phone messaging system to call the home or cell number you have provided the school upon enrollment of your child (if during the school day, an email and text message will be sent--not a phone call.) Please make sure this information is correct in our system. The district will also notify TV stations KOMU - channel 8, KRCG - channel 13, and KMIZ - channel 17. THE SCHOOL DISTRICT ASKS PARENTS OR GUARDIANS NOT TO CALL SCHOOLS OR TELEVISION STATIONS ABOUT THE CANCELATION OF SCHOOL. The website address – www.fulton58.org - will be updated with early dismissal and cancelation notices as well as Facebook--Fulton Public Schools and Twitter-- @FPSHornets.
Occasionally, school will be dismissed early due to bad weather. If an early dismissal is required, an announcement will be made that school will be dismissed a specific number of hours early from the building’s normal dismissal time. School buses will run beginning at the dismissal time announced on those days school is canceled in midday.
