I mportant Information about Lunch Payments from Child Nutrition Services

Pursuant to DUSD policy, middle school students are expected to pay for all food items they consume at snack and lunch on the day they consume them. Students will not be allowed to carry negative balances on their accounts and cannot expect to be given lunch if they do not have funds available. School staff will make every effort to provide a small snack such as a granola bar or piece of fruit to students who forget to bring lunch or lunch money. Please remember to add funds regularly to your child's SchoolBucks account. If you need assistance to provide regular school meals for your child, please contact Ms. Teresa Meza at mezateresa@dublinusd.org for details about the free or reduced price meal program. 

Parent Visitors on Campus


We are always delighted to see parents for special events on the Fallon campus, but we do want to remind you to please sign in at the office and wear a visitor badge while you are on campus. Our staff members are trained to direct adults to the front office if they do not see the visitor badge. Also, please remember that you will need to make an appointment in advance and check in at the office to meet with your child's teachers. Our children's safety is our highest priority, so thank you in advance for complying with these safety procedures.


Academic Progress Report from Principal Sweeney

We are now half way through the first quarter of the school year. Academic progress reports will be posted on the parent portal on Friday, September 23rd. If your child has a letter grade of "D" or "F" in any course, you will also receive a printed progress report in the mail. Please consider calling or scheduling a conference with your child's teacher if your child is struggling in any classes
