Desert Willow

Upcoming Community Events


APS has proposed a change to next year's school calendar that will affect ALL APS schools, including Desert Willow Family School.

We do not have all the details just yet but here are some things that we might expect:

It's really important that we weigh in as a community! Please respond to the survey at (or follow the link in the email from APS or Ms. Trish Ann) to let the school board know that we value our homeschool day on Mondays and that following the standard APS schedule would not meet the unique needs of our school community. Most importantly, our school needs the autonomy to set our weekly schedule to take full advantage of our hybrid in-class/homeschool learning model.

The letter below was sent to the APS Chief of Schools requesting autonomy in setting our daily/weekly schedule. Feel free to use any talking points in the letter in your survey response!
