Desert Sands Unified School District is pleased to report that all power to John Adams Elementary School was restored at approximately 8:30 PM on Monday, September 8, 2014. Clean up at the school continues but a full reopening on
Wednesday, September 10
is both anticipated and planned. All school sites affected by yesterday's rain are working to tidy up from the aftermath of any remnants left from the storm.
Dr. Gary Rutherford, superintendent, has issued a statement thanking the entire district team, particularly the staff at Adams Elementary, the City of La Quinta and the local utility companies, and the La Quinta Police Department for their immediate actions to ensure the safety of our students and to quickly reopen the school. Parents of our Adams Elementary students are commended for their understanding and their patience during the situation. We are very proud of the children enrolled at the school who handled their morning's adventure using the listening skills that they have been taught and working with their teachers to establish a new routine for the day.
John Adams Elementary School will be closed on Tuesday, September 9, 2014.
District personnel are expected to complete all repairs and clean up at Adams Elementary on Tuesday and the school reopening is planned for Wednesday, September 10, 2014 . Any change to this schedule will be communicated to parents by phone message or email. The Desert Sands Unified School District web site and the John Adams Elementary School web site will also share that information. In addition, we are encouraging parents to check reports from local media. All spaces at the school will be cleared by the district maintenance team prior to reoccupation.
