  •   OPTIONAL Family Resources during School Closures

    We want to help our DCES families as much as possible during the Poway Unified School District closures.  The links, documents and resources posted below are completely OPTIONAL for our students.  We hope these activities will bring some helpful routine and instruction while we wait for school closures to end.  
    Some of the links, like Khan Academy or RAZ Kids,  might not work during certain times. If that happens to you, please type in the website name in your browser, and open the site from there.
    This resource library will be updated whenever new links will be available, so check back often.



    #PowayUnified schools and district offices will be closed until further notice to help slow the spread of COVID-19. At this time, we do not have an estimated date of return. We want our students back in school as soon as possible, but not at the risk of their health and safety. Click for the full update:…/St…/Raising-Awareness/Coronavirus

    Friends and families of Deer Canyon,

    The health and welfare of our students and community are our first priority. We are continuing to monitor guidelines regarding the Coronavirus from the CDC, Department of Public Health, and California Department of Education, as well as the information from the Poway USD. Per the direction of PUSD, we are closing campus to students beginning March 16. As of now we don't have a set return date, but we will let you know as soon as we get new information from the District. The week of Spring Break April 13-17 still stays the same.
