Hello!  Welcome to the 2017 - 2018 school year.  This is going to be a very enlightening year for our staff, students, and parents as we prepare for our WASC accreditation visit and reapply for Model Continuation School status.  Both of the reports are such a pleasure to research and write because it gives us a chance to highlight all of the wonderful attributes of our program at Mesquite.  We welcome any and all help and input from parents and the community.
One important change this year will be with our food service program.  
Sierra Sands Unified School district announced an amendment to its policy for serving meals to students under the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs for the 2017– 2018 school year. All students will be served lunch and breakfast at no charge at 
Mesquite High School.  In addition, we will be participating in the Breakfast in the Classroom program so all students will receive a free breakfast in their 1st-period class. 
As always, we will be emphasizing our motto "freedom through responsibility" with our students.    I encourage you to contact me via email at at any time if you have a question or concern.   You may also call the school at 760-499-1810.   
Welcome back, Dragons!
