Dear Desert View parents and guardians,
Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! My name is Mary Stahl and I am honored to be the new principal at Desert View Intermediate. I’ve been fortunate to be a part of Page Unified School District for 16 years. I started my career here at Page High School, as an English teacher. Originally from Bedford, Ohio, I fully appreciate the mild weather and wide open spaces Arizona has to offer. In the future, we will have many opportunities to meet each other. I look forward to getting to know you, your student(s), and your family.
The Bobcat teaching staff is working hard to ensure your child receives quality educational opportunities this school year. We recognize that starting online is going to be a new learning experience for some of our students, so the first few weeks of school is focused on teaching students how to use technology as a learning tool. We also recognize that you may need support helping your child with this new way of learning. Parent support tutorials and phone support will be available to you when we begin remote learning.
Your role in your child’s education is extremely important. I need you to make sure that we have your current contact information in Powerschool. Contact Michelle Pugh at 928-608-4137 or Maxine Benally at 928-608-4356 to verify your phone number, email address, and mailing address.
Remote learning begins on Monday, August 10th. The Remote Learning schedule is included in this letter and it is dependent on your child’s grade level. Remote learning does not mean that your child is online all the time. You will receive a separate letter that includes your student’s assigned teacher’s name and his/her Google Classroom class code when you pick up your student’s Device Pack. Device Pack distribution will be in the Desert View front parking lot (off of Lake Powell Blvd.) on August 3rd, 4th, and 5th from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., and 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. You will also receive a Remote Learning Packet which includes community internet access points and technology support information.
Safety is our priority, and we will remain in remote learning until we know it is safe to open our doors to our precious children.
Sincerely, Mary Stahl
