Following approval of the $42.3 million construction contract, the Jefferson Street Interchange project will begin construction this spring. The Riverside County Transportation Department, the lead agency for this project, together with the City of Indio and Coachella Valley Association of Governments will have a groundbreaking ceremony scheduled for March 20, 2015 at 10:00 AM at the Jefferson and Varner cross road. 

Next School Site Council Meeting is scheduled on Tuesday May 5th, 2015 

 We will meet in the conference room on the second floor of the administration building. Any parent, guardian, or community member is invited to attend our meetings. If you have any questions, please contact David Gustafson at david.gustafson@desertsands.us 

The Race Is On! 


The number of community members requesting receipt of this newsletter, The Beacon, continues to grow. It would be great to get it in the hands of all of our DSUSD families. In an effort to do just that, beginning today, Monday, February 9, any individual signing up on our web site to receive the newsletter will have his/her name entered into a drawing for one of five Chromebooks! 

Contest ends Tuesday, March 31, and winners will be announced in the April 6 edition. An electronic version of the flyer on page 11 will be sent to all principals on Monday, February 9, for distribution. Sorry but employees of Desert Sands Unified School District are not eligible to participate. Simply direct your school family members to go to http://www.dsusd.us/news to register. Look for a Spanish language version of the newsletter to be available in the very near future.

We are excited that you are interested in playing a sport at Shadow Hills High School. In order to participate in any sport at Shadow Hills, you must gain athletic clearance. Incoming freshman (2015-16 school year) can begin this process now but are not allowed to participate or practice with any team prior to your 8th grade promotion. 

We are excited to announce that we are now using an electronic athletic clearance system.
