Welcome to the 2014-2015 School Year! Today is the start of a brand new year for teachers and students alike. The Children seem anxious and the teachers are prepared for a rigorous year. We appreciate you choosing Fulton Independent as your school district. If there is anything we can help you with, please feel free to contact us.
We ask that you become active in your child's education. Studies show that parents have the single most influence over a child's education. When your child gets in from school, look through the backpack for any messages, notes or tests that the teacher sent home. Parents will often be asked to sign documents and return in a timely manner. It is also important to look at the teacher's website for any deadlines for projects, or homework for the week. Join our PTO to become active in your child's school year.
If your child is absent, please send a signed excuse from you or the child's doctor. A parent has six absences and/or tardies before needing a doctor's excuse. Tardies will count the same as absences for the first six. Use these sparingly, as many sicknesses can be contagious throughout the year. Also know that if the Nurse sends the child home, it will be excused. She is located in the Elementary School and will be sent to the High School on an as needed basis.
We look forward to the first month of school with you, so stay tuned for many positive happenings at Fulton Independent School District.
