Can't Keep Them on the Shelves- Library Support Campaign
We are very fortunate at Fallon to have a large population of readers. Although we have more than one copy of the popular books, we still do not have enough for the high demand and many students are disappointed and on a long waiting list for the book of their choice.
Our school has established a library donation program for these popular titles. Please click here to read more and donate.
Please help your student select a costume that supports our effort to provide a positive and fun environment. Please also note that Halloween (Wednesday, October 31st) is not a minimum day for middle school students. Middle school students will be released at 2:00 p.m.

Parking Lot Safety
We know that parents and children are often in a hurry during morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up times, but please give yourselves a few extra minutes to arrive and depart safely from the Fallon campus. Remember that children should enter and exit a car ONLY when it is in a designated parking space or next to a white curb. It is not safe or legal to enter or exit a car next to red curb, in a crosswalk, or from the left lane of traffic. If you drop off or meet your child in the parking lot behind the gym, please remember that the small parking area is for staff only and that you should park in a designated angled parking space to meet your child. There are no white curbs for passenger loading or unloading in this lot. Thank you for keeping ALL our community's children safe.
