Under normal circumstances, Falcon Ridge welcomes visitors to our school. The COVID-19 pandemic has been a difficult time for all of us. Things have changed dramatically due to the virus. Safety is our number one priority, and we must do everything we can to prevent the spread of this disease and protect our students and staff. Until further notice, no visitors will be allowed in our school. 


We know parent support is a critical component of our community engagement and partnership. Unfortunately, during the pandemic, Falcon Ridge will not be allowing parent volunteers until further notice. This includes high school and middle school helpers.

Birthday Treats

Until further notice, students will not be allowed to bring in any food items to share with others.


More information will be posted as it becomes available.

Curbside Pickup

When buses are still at Falcon Ridge, the first car will wait at the southeast corner of the north parking lot. When the buses are dismissed, a FR staff member will signal for the first eight vehicles to pull up in front of the building. Once your child(ren) is in your vehicle, you can leave as long as there is not a vehicle in front of you. (Example:  Vehicle 2 cannot leave until vehicle 1 is gone. Vehicle 4 cannot leave until vehicles 1, 2, and 3 are gone.) When all vehicles are gone, a staff member will signal for the next group of cars to pull up in front of the building.

DO NOT park in front of the yellow lines. These areas are reserved for buses and mail delivery. Thank you for your cooperation!

During the Day

Parents/guardians are asked to call or send a note with their child prior to appointments and vacations, etc. Please include the name of the person picking up your child, if it is someone other than the parent/guardian. Whoever picks up the child will be asked to sign the child out of the office, while a secretary contacts the child through the teacher. Students picked up prior to 3:30 p.m. will result in a half-day absence.

We suggest that appointments be scheduled after school or on non-school days whenever possible.
