DS Half Day Dismissal

Dear Desert Sky Families,

Good afternoon! I hope your week is off to a great start!

I am writing to notify you of a change in our half day dismissal time. Due to conflicts with our K-8 and high school transportation routes, our new dismissal time on half days will be 11:30 a.m. This Thursday, October 1st is a half day with dismissal now at 11:30 a.m. Please make pick-up arrangements accordingly. Also, Friday, October 2nd is also a scheduled asynchronous half day. Students will be taking their Writing Benchmark asynchronously at home on Friday.

Please feel free to call our office at 879-2702 if you have any questions.

Have a wonderful day!

Katie Dabney

The school day will be from 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
