School starts each day at 8:30 - students should plan to be on campus no earlier than 7:45 unless other arrangements have been made with the teacher. Students will be counted tardy for arrivals that occur after 8:40 (students are to 'be in their seats when class starts' - this will typically happen within approximately 10 minutes of arrival time - better to be safe, and make sure you are here by 8:30!)
Monday - Thursday release it at 3:30. Please plan to have your child picked up by 3:45 at the latest. Late stays are subject to extra fees as noted in the handbook.
Friday - Because Desert View is a Seventh Day Adventist School, and we keep a biblical Sabbath which begins at sundown on Friday evening, we release early on Fridays, to allow for preparation time for Sabbath. Release time is 1:00, with students needing to be picked up by 1:15 at the latest.
Here is a link to the basic outline of our day (please note that this is somewhat flexible, and does change from time to time, without change being noted here).
Thank you for your consideration on scheduling issues - if you have a situation arise that needs an adjustment of some sort, please contact Ms. Sharon, via text at 256-684-7013.
