After making various revisions based on community input received, the Carson City School Board approved the Carson City School District’s Safe Reopening Plan for the 2021-2022 school year, at the school board meeting Tuesday, July 13, 2021. The motion passed with a unanimous vote of 7-0.

As detailed in the plan, the district will not be requiring the use of facemasks for the 2021-22 school year. However, the district highly encourages the use of facemasks for unvaccinated persons over the age of 2 years of age. Additionally, if a localized outbreak of COVID-19 or a variant of COVID-19 occurs, the temporary use of facemasks may be employed as part of a multi-layered effort to end the outbreak.

School districts are required to outline how they will provide instruction in 2021-22 via in-class or distance education for all students. They are obligated to offer options for students who have compromised health needs or to families who have English language learners, are on 504 plans, on individual education plans or might be in other special circumstances.
