Stay Connected with Fonda-Fultonville

Working with families and the community has always been a huge part of the district’s process, so please utilize the following resources for staying connected to the Fonda-Fultonville schools!

Emails, Text Messages & All-Calls

Fonda-Fultonville uses School Messenger as its mass notification system for emails, SMS text messages and phone calls to parents.

Parents should check with their child’s school building office to ensure they have accurate email addresses and phone numbers on file. Parents do not need to sign up for emails, SMS text and phone notifications. However, School Messenger pulls contact information from the district’s student management system School Tool, so it’s important to ensure your information is accurate.

In order to make sure you receive emails and emergency notifications, including weather-related school closings and delays, always notify your child’s school if a contact phone number or email changes.

Fonda-Fultonville on Social Media

The goal of Fonda-Fultonville’s social media is to create a dialogue with our community, so please join us there and post your comments, questions and even media to our pages.

We ask that your comments follow the network’s rules and guidelines, and that anything we talk about is district-related. Because our focus has always been students, the accounts are always closely watched and moderated.

  • Ask questions, but please maintain student privacy.
  • Share media, but be mindful and use good judgment about what you post.
  • If you run a local business, we wish you success, but we will not allow promotion of your business on our accounts. We are education focused.
