DSUSD Summer Update

Summer may be a time of relaxation and fun, but Desert Sands Unified School District is getting ready for that school bell to ring on August 18! The district is looking forward to returning to school for the traditional five-day per week schedule. Check your children's individual school websites for the latest information. Some start times may have changed as the district transitions to a later bell schedule for some middle and high schools.

Research shows that children who attend preschool are more likely to graduate from high school and do better academically. Desert Sands offers a variety of preschool programs at multiple locations. Preschool is free for families who qualify! Children must be three or four years old to be enrolled. English language learners are also encouraged to enroll. Programs are available for special needs students. Call today for more information and to help your child take that first step to a great education! Information on DSUSD preschools is available at 760-771-8775.
