Return to Learning 2020


DVMS Dragons:

Arizona schools have been directed by the Governor and AZ Department of Education to provide free on-site support services, for students who need them, beginning on Monday, August 17th. 

  • DVMS is offering a safe space, The Den, for those students who are unable to work at home. Dragons will be provided a secure, supervised environment to complete class assignments. The safe space is NOT teacher led instruction. Students will log in to their class Zoom meetings and assignments with their classroom teacher throughout the day. Breaks and a time for lunch will be provided. Students need to bring their own lunch from home. Students will need to bring their own snacks and a refillable water bottle on a daily basis. 
  • The Den will be open during regular school hours; 9:00AM-4:00PM Monday through Friday. Dragons are required to wear a face covering and are expected to wear their DVMS uniforms when on campus. 
  • To ensure the safety of our students and staff that are using the school as a safe space we have partnered with Healthy Verify.
    • HealthyVerify has partnered with Arizona State University to reduce the workplace risk of spreading infectious diseases.

  • Please use the following link if you would like to reserve a spot in The Den for your child/children:
  • Please contact the office with any further questions. 

Go Dragons!

Principal’s Roar

Dear Desert View Dragon Parents/Guardians: 

Late yesterday afternoon, the State Superintendent of Public Instruction announced that “Arizona is not currently in a place to resume in-person or hybrid learning by August 17th.” Because Arizona is experiencing high community spread, it is strongly believed that students and teachers should not be congregating in our school facilities. 

Based on Superintendent Hoffman’s statement, DVMS  will put in place our At Home instructional model for all students starting August 17th, 2020. Our own teachers will provide the online curriculum lessons.

We are still continuing our Parent Previews this week and next week. If you have already attended a preview for the purpose of attending on campus and this change has generated additional questions, please call our front office and schedule a time to come in. If you were unable to attend your scheduled time and would like more information about the change to At Home learning, please contact the front office to schedule a time to attend one of the previews.

We know that this is a trying time for everyone. We are a family here at DVMS and are here to support our students, parents, and staff.  Please continue to check your emails, school website, and social media pages to stay up-to-date on all new developments. We appreciate your patience and support during this unprecedented time.
