  • Message from School Leadership 

    With the longest-running tradition of e-learning in District 49, Falcon High School’s Administration and Staff are committed to supporting student learning that is as closely aligned to the learning that they would have received had they attended school in the building on a regular school day.  We recognize that in these very difficult times, circumstances are different from those that we have experienced previously when our students were the only ones home on e-days.  We know that parents, siblings and other family members are all competing for computing and bandwidth space and will be flexible as possible in providing a quality educational experience.  Please stay well and safe and we hope to see you again in person soon.
