Electronics Use on Fallon Campus

Parents, please review the Fallon student handbook ("minder binder") along with the
technology policies  on the district website to be sure your child understands how and when cell phones and other personal electronic devices can be used at school. Students' phones may be confiscated or prohibited on campus if used in violation of these rules. Please also remind your children how important it is to watch where they are going (rather than looking at their phones) when walking across campus and crossing streets to and from school. Thank you!
