Important Information for the classes of 2021, 2022, and 2023
Desert Edge students returning in August for the 2020-2021 school year will keep their chromebooks and chargers through the summer. Upon their return in August, all devices will be checked to ensure there is no significant damage or repairs that need to be made and to ensure the devices are still in possession of the students.
*Any student that will NOT be returning to DEHS in August will need to return their chromebooks and chargers before withdrawing from Desert Edge HS. This can be done during the withdrawal process.
*Any items that belong to the school (instruments, library books, textbooks, etc.) will be collected when the 2020-2021 school year begins.
*Any items that belong to the student that are still on campus will be available to pick up at a later date and time. Communication will be sent out via email and social media as soon as we have confirmed a date/time for this process.
*Yearbooks are still available for purchase. When the order does arrive on campus, anyone that has pre-ordered a yearbook will be notified as to when they can pick it up; and any remaining books that are available for purchase will also be included in that email. Those books will be for sale on a first-come, first-serve basis.
