Welcome Back

Dear Desert Ridge Families,

I hope this letter finds all of you safe and healthy, and excited about the upcoming school year. Desert Ridge looks forward to the start of the 21-22 school year. August 4th, our first day of the school year is quickly approaching and we are excited to welcome our students back to campus. August 4th will be a 2:20 dismissal and we will be following the regular bell schedule. Desert Ridge will start the 1:20 release PLC Weds. schedule on August 11. Desert Ridge has a great tradition of providing excellent education and extracurricular activities for all students and we will continue to do this to the best of our abilities.

Enjoy the last few weeks of summer and we look forward to working with you and your student to provide the best learning experience that we can.
