  • Desert Wind Tiger Families, 

    Welcome back to the 2021-2022 school year!

    Students’ first day of school is Thursday, July 22nd. On Thursday, July 15th, we would like to invite you to our parent/guardian informational meeting. From 5:30-6:30 PM, we will be meeting with 7th and 8th parents/guardians, and from 6:45-7:45 PM, we will be meeting with 6th grade parents/guardians and those who are new to the MUSD20 district. Please do not bring students with you to this meeting. At this meeting, DWMS Administration and office staff will provide you with information about the upcoming school year. During this time, we will provide you with our bell schedule, bus routes, lunch applications, etc., and be available to answer any questions you may have about Desert Wind Middle School. Student schedules will not yet be available at the parent informational meeting, but we will be in communication with all families when they become available in ParentVue/StudentVue. If you do not have a ParentVue account at this time, please email or to get an activation key. Student schedules will be given to students on the first day of school. 

    On Tuesday, July 20th, we would like to welcome all 6th graders to campus for Tiger Training Day! Students should arrive at the campus at 8:45 AM and they will be released at 11:45 AM. In order for students to participate, students must be picked up at 11:45 AM or be within walking/biking distance of campus. We will not be able to provide transportation or supervision or students after 11:45 AM. At Tiger Training Day, students will meet teachers and staff, tour campus, and get prepared for the first day of school! 

    On Monday, August 9th, we will welcome all families to campus for Meet the Teacher. We will provide you with more information about Meet the Teacher closer to the date of the event. 

    At Desert Wind Middle School, we communicate via The Tiger Telegram each and every Friday! Please ensure that your contact information is correct and that we have a good email address on file for you so you do not miss out on important information each week. 

    We are looking forward to an excellent school year. Should you have any questions or need assistance, please contact Principal Carlos Alvarado via email at or Assistant Principal Balt via email at or call our front office at (520) 568-7110.
