A Message from Principal Sweeney: Student Safety During Pickup Time


We have noticed that many parents have begun to arrive on our campus or line the curb of our pick up circle as much as 45 minutes before the school day officially ends. This presents a potential safety issue for our students who are still traversing the campus on their way to their final classes or Academic Prep period. We ask that all adults who arrive on campus more than 20 minutes before the final bell rings please park in our lot or on a city street and meet your child when the final bell rings. For the safety of your own child as well as all Fallon students, our campus supervisors and administrators may ask you to move your car and/or check in at the office if you arrive more than 20 minutes before the final bell. Thank you for your cooperation!
