On-site support spaces are offered through an application/acceptance process only and are limited and prioritized by student need. You will find a link to the application and more information here: On-Site Support Request click here

School computers during on-line learning

In order to transition to on-line as smoothly as possible, we need EVERY STUDENT using a school computer to take their computer home by the end of the week. Computers will go home with all students on Friday. If you are planning to have your student not attend school on Friday, please advise your student’s teacher and make arrangements to have your child take home their computer prior to Friday.

As you are aware, Desert Cove does not have enough computers for every student. If you have a home computer available during on-line learning, please complete this form so that we are able to serve all students by distributing your child’s computer to another student who does not have one at home.

Snowflake Program

The strength of our Cougar Community is reflected in how well we care for families who are experiencing hardships. The Snowflake Program is a practical way we can support our students and families during the holidays. We anticipate higher needs than usual due to the pandemic, and invite you to purchase a (or some) $25 gift card to Walmart or Target. This will allow us to provide some support to as many families as possible in the way that they need most. Cards can be dropped off at the office, with Nurse Stephanie, or Ms. Denny.

If you are needing some help with the holiday or anything else, please reach out to Sharon Denny at (602) 449-3409 or email her at We are here for you and your student/s and we’ll get through this together!
