During a special session last night, the Carson City School District School Board of Trustees voted unanimously to offer in-person, on-campus instruction for third to sixth graders, four days a week, Tuesdays through Fridays. The first official day of this more traditional education model will begin Tuesday, Jan. 19, 2021. The district previously announced a return to 4-days-per-week, in-person learning for Pre-K to second grade students Oct. 20, 2020.

For all students (at all grade levels) throughout the Carson City School District, Mondays will remain remote learning days. Students, both full-remote and in-seat, will check in with their homeroom teachers electronically and work independently throughout the school day.

Students in grades seventh through twelfth will remain in their assigned cohort groups and will continue to receive instruction via the hybrid-blended learning model. Any students and families who have elected full-remote instruction may continue to remain in the remote learning instruction model if they choose. The wearing of face masks and maintaining social distancing between students is still expected.

“We feel confident in complying with the Nevada Department of Education’s request to physically return students to school safely and in compliance with government directives,” said Richard Stokes, superintendent for the Carson City School District. “It is our desire and duty to find the methods and systems that will best address the academic needs of our students and families while living within the Pandemic. As governmental directions and social conditions change, our educational operations will also reflect these changes. We will continue to use the guidance and best practices suggested by national and state leaders in an effort to keep our students and staff safe.
