5 Days a Week In Person
Wednesday, February 3 is an early release day and students will be released at 11:20. The bell schedule for the day is below.
Thank you for your ongoing support and please stay safe and healthy as we continue with 2nd semester.
Renovated Front Desk Area
When entering the school you may notice upgraded security features at the front desk of our campus. These enhancements include a purpose built entrance with secure interior doors and new check-in procedures. This new area will be where our receptionist and attendance will be located. They will be moving into this area very soon.
These enhancements are part of a district-wide safety and security initiative to build safe and supportive schools for our students and staff. Desert Ridge is delighted to be one of the first GPS schools to be part of this initiative that will be rolled out to all schools across the district in due course.
The enhancements are based on proven security models used in many other school districts across the country and we anticipate that our students will quickly get used to the new features.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to reach out to our team and we will be happy to help.
