June 19, 2020
Dear Parents/Guardians of Fallon Middle School Students,
As we end this school year in unprecedented times, apart from our students and families, we are preparing for the beginning of the next school year. It is with enthusiasm that we welcome you to the 2020-21 school year. We look forward to coming together and hope that we will be able to greet you face to face. As we await further direction, we know that no matter the challenge, it is going to be a great school year!
As soon as information becomes available we will send further communication. Please see below for frequently asked questions and current registration next steps.
Until we meet again, stay safe & healthy,
Mr. Ken Rocha Incoming Principal and the Rest of the Fallon Staff
There are only two steps to take before school begins; the steps are outlined below:
Step 1: Annual Data Update: This step can NOT be completed until after July 20, 2020. Please make sure to log into your parent portal account and follow the instructions that are provided. For portal issues email email@example.com. It is also extremely important to note the following as you complete your update: DO NOT COMPLETE THE UPDATE IN ALL CAPITAL LETTERS. We have to go in and change everything you did. This step is very important; if our Fall Check In ends up being virtual/online – we anticipate mailing class assignments & if your address is not correct, you will not receive your student(s) class assignment.
If you do not have a Parent Portal Account: You can create one by going to https://www.dublinusd.org In the top right hand portion of the page you will find a “Parent Portal” icon. Please click on this and follow the directions to set up your account. (For new families, an activation key was emailed to you when your online registration was approved. Check your spam/junk email folder.) Parent Portal updates need to be completed on a desktop computer, typically it is not successful on a smartphone.
Step 2: Fall Check In: We are anticipating that Fall Check In will be on August 5, 2020 online. Please watch the Fallon Website and the District website for updates. We will make updates as soon as we know and we will send out an email to our families in early August.
Q: If Fall Check In is virtual/online, how will we get our class placement for our child(ren)?
A: We anticipate that we will mail class assignments to our student(s) home address.
Q: If I complete the online Parent Portal Update, do I still need to attend Fall Check In?
A: Yes, there are additional steps to complete at Fall Check In.
Q: If I have a new Student, do I need to attend Fall Check In?
A: Yes, all families that are attending Fallon in the Fall need to attend Fall Check In.
Q: If my child has medication that I want at school, can I bring it to Fall Check In?
A: Yes, as long as you have the completed District paperwork, you can bring the medication and the paperwork to Fall Check In and our Health Services Assistant will check the medication and forms in for use in this school year. Forms can be found at www.dublinusd.org Select “Health Services” from the Department toolbar, then “Forms” is on the left hand tool bar. (Forms must be new each year & must have a doctor’s signature).
Q: When and how do I find out who my student’s teacher is?
A: Once a parent/guardian has attended Fall Check In and turned in all required paperwork, class assignments will be given out.
Q: What if I have additional questions, such as calendar questions?
A: Our Fallon Website is updated regularly. The Fallon Office will reopen on July 23, 2020.
Have a fabulous summer!
