AUDIT SERVICES – REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS
The Fulton School District 58 is accepting proposals for annual auditing services of the district. Audit specifications and timelines are available at the link below. Questions should be directed to Dr. Ty Crain, Superintendent at email@example.com.
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 (if during the school day, an email and text message will be sent--not a phone call. 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-- @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.
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 website. Snow routes will be announced via local television stations and by text messaging.

The Vaping YouTube (link below) is a local production of material researched and prepared by Lauren Jacobs our Coordinator of Student Health Services. Even though a lot of vaping material is bantered about in the general press, Mrs. Jacobs is providing information pertinent to your student in a quick format. Also, note the vaping items displayed on the table in the video were confiscated from Fulton students during school hours. Mrs. Jacobs can be reached at 573-590-8110.
Nobody likes me. I don’t have friends. I am going to kill myself. These are just a few statements FPS teachers, counselors, and social workers hear daily. Yes, the District has provided staff training to handle these statements and we do immediately respond with support for any child making self-harm statements.
In the last 2 weeks, there have been multiple suicide attempts by students in the Fulton School District. Since the beginning of school, there have been many hospitalizations due to kids having thoughts of suicide. Fortunately, current Social Workers and Counselors are proactively providing student support when self-harm is mentioned. This mental health support is provided by you, our community, as a result of passing the August 2018 Operating Tax Levy increase. In fact, the District is now seeking to expand the Social Work staff after the Winter Break.
However, support from the school alone is not enough. The video below is the first of many informational segments provided so you can learn the warning signs, learn appropriate responses, and help your child cope with everyday challenges and life. Your FPS faculty and staff are extremely concerned about suicide and OUR kids.
Even though some may think this is normal because of the national trend, Fulton Public Schools does NOT want this to be our normal.
