Welcome to Desert Star Elementary!


    Dear Parents and Guardians, 

    I hope you are having a wonderful time and enjoying summer break!! I would like to welcome you back for the 2021-2022 school year.  I am looking forward to meeting and seeing all of our returning scholars on July 29th.  I am enthusiastic about continuing as our Elementary School Principal and working with our wonderful Desert Star staff.  Please come and enjoy our Open House on July 28 from 6-7 pm for Elementary and Middle School. This is a great time to meet your new teachers and share information that will help your scholar to have a successful year. Parent’s are the scholars first educator and I believe if we work together it will help your scholar to strive for success!

    Elementary School hours are from 8:00-3:30 with drop-off being no earlier than 7:30 on the elementary playground. Pledge will begin at 7:50. If you are unable to pick-up your scholar at 3:30, we offer after school care.  It is offered in the Multipurpose Room closest to the Hwy 95 (Drop Zone). After school hours are from 3:30-6 for Kindergarten through 5th Grade only. Each scholar attending will be charged a $5 fee. The after school program will run Mon-Thursday.  Friday scholar care is available for $10 (See Drop Zone for more details).

    Middle School hours will be from 7:35-3:45. Drop off hours are no earlier than 7:30.

    Thank you for helping us kick off the 2020-2021 school year! I am looking forward to seeing you soon and having a great year!!
