Corona Virus Update -July 2020

We are very happy to announce that School will begin on August 24th. School will begin in a virtual setting with a new platform called Swivl.  This is a conference wide decision for all elementary schools in Southeastern California Conference. We hope to be back in the classroom soon after the state allows in class instruction. When DAA goes back to in-person instruction, we will be offering the Swivl virtual eduction platform for those who request at home education.

Please note that the latest Coronavirus directives issued by the state call for the use of virtual education. This may change in the coming weeks.  See the current version of the Desert Adventist Academy school year calendar in the link provided, Click here

The public health crisis created by the Coronavirus is not something any of us could reasonably have expected to happen, and we’re in uncharted waters as we work to prevent the spread of the illness. Together we are facing an unprecedented health crisis in our community. In our response to COVID-19, we have relied on the wisdom of the Southeastern California Conference of Seventh-day Adventist leaders, national health experts and elected officials.

This is a very fluid situation and things rapidly keep changing.

Our incredible school staff, school leaders, and support staff have been unwavering in their commitment to students during this trying time. We appreciate their service to our community, children, and families of Desert Adventist Academy.

We are committed to update you with current information about the coronavirus (COVID-19) disease as it is certain to continue to impact our churches and schools. We value the health and safety of our employees, church members and students. God bless you and thank you for all you do for our school.
