Locker Clean-out and Yearbook Distribution
Posted 5/15/20

Dear Diamondback Families,

 

Amazingly, we find ourselves at the end of the school year. It goes without saying that this year will be one we will never forget.   While it ended in an unconventional way, I hope we are all able to reflect on the many positive events, milestones and memories we created this year. I am so proud of our students, staff and community.  Desert Ridge is such a great school and I am humbled and proud to be your principal.

 

Here is what is happening for the last week of school (May 18-21):

Monday: Advocacy

Tuesday: Math/Science

Wednesday: Social Studies/Language Arts

Thursday: Electives

Friday: No School for students it is a staff work day

 

Our team has developed a system to safely collect and return items. This will take place May 19, 20, and 21 (schedule is below). Please understand that we are doing our best to allow students the opportunity to collect their belongings.

 

It is NOT mandatory that students participate. It is your decision, as a family, if your child comes to campus on the scheduled day.

 

Please DO NOT have your child come onto campus if they are not feeling well. 

 

The schedule of when your child can come onto campus is below:

 

As per the Governor’s order, everyone must wear a facemask; if your student is not wearing a facemask they will not be able to come on campus.

 

Guidelines for being on campus:

  • Only current DRMS students can enter the building.
  • Students will arrive at the start of their assigned time (see below)
  • As per the Governor’s order everyone must wear a facemask; if your student is not wearing a facemask they will not be able to come on campus

  • We will NOT collect Chromebooks at this time!
  • Parents:  Please drop off your child in the front of the school at the bus-loading zone; do not park.  Parents will be directed to the pick-up line at the back of the school where you will wait to pick up your child when s/he is finished
  • Students will empty their lockers and collect their locks.
  • Students will return any textbooks or library books to designated areas. Any items coming from home must be returned in a bag labeled with student name and ID number.
