Welcome to Transportation

A Message From the Director

Bryan Abbott - Director

Welcome to FPS Transportation Dept. where our mission is "Safety, Safety Safety."

We are committed to providing the safest and most efficient transportation for all the students of the Fulton Public Schools District.

All our drivers have completed extensive hours of training and testing to become a School Bus Driver with a Certified Driver’s License. Training includes bus safety, fire evacuations, and CPR certification.

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me by phone or email or stop by the bus barn on State Road Z.

Whether We Like It or Not, Winter Weather is on the Way!

School Closing Information

Winter weather will be here before we know it. We 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.

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 in our system. The district will also notify TV stations KOMU 8, KRCG 13, and KMIZ 17. THE SCHOOL DISTRICT ASKS PARENTS OR GUARDIANS NOT TO CALL SCHOOLS OR TELEVISION STATIONS ABOUT THE CANCELLATION OF SCHOOL. The website address, www.fulton58.org, will be updated with early dismissal and cancellation notices. Facebook and Twitter will also be updated. Please follow us on Twitter @FPSHornets and Facebook search for "Fulton Public Schools."

Early Dismissal

Occasionally, schools will be dismissed early due to 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 the days school is canceled midday.

Buses Running on Snow Routes

Snow routes will be updated in the next couple of weeks. Information will be sent home with all bus riders. We will post each bus route on our website,www.fulton58.org. To find the bus routes on our website, please go to "District Info," then under "Departments" select "Transportation," and lastly select "Snow Routes."
