    Mark Your Calendars for 'First Day Fulton'

    First Day Fulton, the district’s back-to-school pep rally, will be held on Saturday, July 27 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at Banneker and Riverwood high schools. This exciting school preparatory event is open to new and existing FCS students. Backpacks stuffed with school supplies will be available while limited supplies last.

    Election Day Calendar Change

    State law requires schools to permit voting when requested by the Fulton County Department of Registrations and Elections. Therefore, Tuesday, May 21 is now set as a remote learning day to allow for district schools to be used as state election polling sites. The district administration is working with schools to create alternative plans for student activities already scheduled at schools that will serve as polling sites. View the Updated Calendar
