- From the Superintendent: The district is working closely with the Ridgecrest Police Department regarding a crime scene on Gold Canyon St.
There is no specific danger to Pierce Elementary School, but out of an abundance of caution, RPD assigned a police officer at Pierce for additional support and confidence.  
Dave OstashWelcome to the Sierra Sands Unified School District Website
I want to extend a warm invitation to all of you as we start the 2019-20 school year. It is an honor and privilege to serve as the Superintendent of the Sierra Sands Unified School District as we look forward to another exciting and rewarding year. Our entire community is proud of the fact that Sierra Sands has enjoyed a long history of academic success that is directly connected to a dedicated and talented staff, innovative leadership, a devoted board of education, strong parental support and a very devoted and generous community.
It is our hope to provide you with a wealth of information about our school district, individual school sites, our variety of academic programs, calendars of events, and various avenues for communication within our school community. If you have any suggestions or thoughts on how we might best serve you through this website, please do not hesitate to let me know.
As we all know, positive change occurs in the context of authentic relationships among staff, parents, and students. Working in partnership is essential if we are to provide quality teaching; safe, supportive school environments; and enriching experiences. I look forward to working with all members of our school and community family as we continue to make strides in the education of our young people!
I am eager to begin the 2019-20 school year with you and I am excited about the many opportunities we have to offer our students. Please do not hesitate to call me if you have any question, thoughts, or concerns related to the education of the children in our community.
Please follow the Tweets this year as we share many of the wonderful academic successes throughout the year!
