Desert Willow

To provide students with an educational foundation for life-long success

Principal's Message

 Parents and Family Members:

A note about school uniforms: this year, the nurse has probably loaned-out 75 to 100 school shirts that were never returned. This means that we don't have many more to loan and on most days, we have none in the larger sizes. Please, if your child has borrowed a shirt or two, please have them return it (them).
Thank you.

Kevin Curran


News and Announcements

Parent Handbooks 3rd Quarter are available
Secure Pick-Up Procedures
The last PE class ends at 2:05 pm. After the students are picked up, the tables are set down for secure pick up. The purpose of the tables is to control the proper release of students to adults. Without a barrier, children may run to an adult they recognize- defeating the purpose of secure pick up.
It is our goal to open the gym doors at 2:10 pm daily. Thank you.
Tardy Procedures
For security, the gym doors are locked after the bell (7:35 AM). If your child arrives after the bell, they will need to come through the front doors in order to get a tardy slip.
Information on Breakfast and the 7:35 Bell
The gym doors open at 7:15 am or a little earlier depending on the bus arrivals. School begins at 7:35 AM. Therefore, the cut-off time for breakfast is 7:30. However, if a school bus is late, the breakfast time is extended. Parents, if you drop off your child for school and would like them to eat breakfast, please have them here before 7:30 AM.
Thank. you.
