September 10 Newsletter
Dear Desert Ridge Families,
It is hard to believe that we are 6 weeks into school and have only 3 weeks left until the end of the first quarter. Make sure that you are checking your Parent Portal to stay updated on your student's grades. Sports and activities are happening daily and our students are doing great things. Visit our website to view our calendar for upcoming events.
Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to working with you and your student to provide the best learning experience that we can. Please reach out to your teachers or Desert Ridge administration with any questions or concerns.

Health Services Update
This school year we continue to work hard to keep our campuses safe and our students as healthy as possible. If one of our Nurses or Health Assistants calls to inform you that your student is ill or that they have been identified as needing to quarantine please understand that we are following the guidance of the Maricopa County Department of Health and the CDC, and that this is required by the Arizona Department of Health. We understand that having your child home from school for an extended period of time can cause undue stress and we appreciate your support in following these required guidelines. Thank you for your understanding and support of our nurses, health assistants, and front office staff during this challenging time. They are doing their very best for our families and it is important that we all work together.
Should you have questions or concerns please call the District Health Office at 480-545-2117
