Fulton Focus

For the parents and patrons of the Fulton School District

August 1, 2018

A message from the Superintendent

Dear Parent or Guardian:

Summer is nearing an end, athletics are amidst their Missouri High School Activities Association mandatory dead week, building floors shine and have the smell of new wax, teachers are arranging classrooms—school is about to start!

Your faculty and staff anticipate an exciting year. Optimistically, you and your student(s) are ready and prepared for new challenges and opportunities.

Faculty will begin their work the week of August 6, 2018, in preparation for your student(s) on the first day of school, August 15, 2018. Building schedules including start times, schedule pick up, various back to school meetings, activities and individual building start times are listed on www.fulton58.org home page, Quick Links, ‘Back to School Information’ and below. For students eligible for school bus service those letters are being mailed, August 3rd.

New faculty pictures will be added to the website and APP soon. All buildings and activities are expected to maintain calendars on the FPS website and APP.

Planned communications will continue. Your FPS website will continue to provide current district information. The Focus continues to be published biweekly and as needed in emergency situations. The School Messenger text notification system will continue to be used; which assumes you have allowed the district to send text messages. (If you haven't and would like to opt-in to receive text messages, text Y or Yes to 67587 on your mobile device.) As a parent, you may track your student(s) progress through the use of the Parent Portal. Finally, the faculty is expected to communicate each student’s progress.

In addition to building/student information, the FPS website is the repository for Board of Education information. Monthly Board of Education meeting agendas, support materials and minutes are available for your review. Historical financial information has always been included in the Board of Education materials; however, a Financial Information button has been added to the website for easier access to the District’s monthly financial status.

As previously stated, we are looking forward to a great school year! Thank you for sending great kids to work with.

My very best regards,

Jacque A. Cowherd, Ed.D.
