School Closing Information

 

School Closing Information   
Winter weather is here, 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 priority of our school district.  

Cancellation of School

The decision to dismiss early or to cancel a full day of school is announced on local television stations as soon as a decision is made.  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.  Please make sure this information is correct. 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 AND RADIO STATIONS ABOUT THE CANCELLATION OF SCHOOL. The website address – www.fulton58.org - will be updated with early dismissal and cancellation notices as well as Facebook--Fulton Public Schools and Twitter-- @fultonhornets.

Early Dismissal

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 cancelled in midday.

Buses Running on Snow Routes
Snow routes have been established for those days when transportation is reasonable yet some areas are not passable.  Parents/guardians are notified of snow routes early in the school year and the routes are posted on the district web site.  Snow routes will be announced via local television stations and by text messaging.
