Hello Cougar Community!

It's been a fantastic first few weeks of school! Thank you for being patient as we work out procedures and protocols. As things change, so will protocols and procedures but I will do my best to make sure you are informed.

Masks at School

On Tuesday, Dr. Bales sent an email to all parents stating that masks will be required for staff and students beginning Thursday, Aug. 19. This is just a reminder that the new regulation starts tomorrow.

For a complete review of our updated mitigation plan, visit the PVSchools Prepared webpage.

*Any parent and or visitor who wants to enter the building must wear a mask starting Thursday August 19, 2021.*

Reminder - Picking up after 2:30PM

If you have to pick up your child(ren) towards the end of the day, please come prior to 2:30PM. After 2:30PM, the office will ask you to wait until the bell rings at 2:45PM.


Make sure you look in your child's folder for the picture day information on Friday, August 20, 2021.

Dress up and smile big!

Thank you Harvest Bible Church!

We are so lucky to have community support. Harvest's parishioners have been so dedicated to making our Kindergarten playground beautiful and unique. Kindergarten pictures will be captured and memories made. They donations of materials and time was such a gift to Desert Cove. Thank you Harvest!! We love it!

Breakfast and Lunch

If you have already filled out the free and reduced lunch forms, thank you! If you haven't please take a moment to fill one out and send it to your child's homeroom teacher. Our funding is based on free and reduced lunch percentage and we don't want to lose it.
