Traffic Safety concerns

The Fallon office has received an increasing number of reports about both adult drivers and student pedestrians engaging in dangerous behavior during the morning and afternoon commute to school. Please help us keep all our children safe by reminding your child to make eye contact with drivers and to cross the streets only within the marked crosswalks. In addition, if your children ride their bikes or skateboards to school, please remind them to walk bikes and skateboards through the crosswalks and to wear a properly-fitted helmet at all times. As adult drivers, of course, we all need to pay particularly close attention to students on foot and bikes as we make our way through the drop-off lanes, parking lots, and local streets. Thank you for your continuing support of policies and procedures that keep our children safe.

!!!Thank You!!!
A big thank you to Fallon families for coming out to the Annual Mustang Round-up. It was a fun evening of carnival games, food and the ever important teachers vs. student basketball game. We hope you all had a wonderful night and that your families enjoyed themselves. We look forward to next year's event!

Parent Input Requested on Special Education Committee

The Community Advisory Council (CAC) is a group of parents, district staff and community members tasked with informing the  Special Education Local Plan Area ( SELPA) regarding issues important to parents, participating in the development of the Local Plan, facilitating parent involvement with special education in their districts, and assisting with parent training.  The CAC holds a minimum of four business meetings and sponsors at least two parent training events per year. In addition, the CAC hosts the Make a Difference Awards every May, during which teachers, related service providers, paraprofessionals and administrators are honored for their work with students with disabilities. Dublin Parents are needed to serve on this Council.  Please contact Jennifer Chiarelli at 925-828-2551 or via email at chiarellijennifer@dublinusd.org if interested.
