The building and all involved are safe with no problem. Please call our office with any questions. We are thankful for our EMS teams and our staff focus on safety!

Hello parents, I hope everyone enjoyed their extended holiday weekend. As a reminder we have a few adjustments at drop off and pick up that will start tomorrow. 1. Arrival will be for all families between 8am and 8:20a. All students (except daycare 3k and younger) will enter through the main entrance to help with traffic flow and movement to the proper class. (daycare will still enter/leave at the South end of the building as usual). 2. Dismissal for ALL car riders will be 3:20pm. Please adhere to pulling up as far as possible to fill in open spots in the pick up line. All older siblings will move to the South end of the building to meet up with younger siblings. All bus riders will stay with teachers and leave at 3:30p to board the bus. 3. Students will be sent home with an order form on Tuesday September 9th for Fontana neck buffs and face masks. We have a limited supply, but we will do our best to fulfill all requests. Thank you for your interest and all funds collected will go directly back toward student needs. We look forward to week 2 of the new school year. See you all tomorrow! #FlyIntoExcellence

Other News and Notes: We have a limited supply of Fontana Falcons neck buffs for sale. These will be $10 a piece and all the funds will go directly back to student supplies for the year. We have also ordered more Fontana face masks that should be in by the end of the month. We are working on securing the USDA lunch program that was just released by the State. More information to come as we finalize our plans. Picture day is September 14th. All students were sent home with a Lifetouch picture packet. If you did not get one, please call our office and we will be sure you do. This applies to all virtual and in-person students. A packet will be mailed this week to all virtual students or you can stop by the office to pick one up. Picture packets will be given by students directly to Lifetouch on picture day. It's a great day to be a Falcon!! Happy Labor Day Weekend.
