A message from CCSD Superintendent Dr. Jesus F. Jara

The safety and wellbeing of students and staff is top priority. Comprehensive Health and Safety procedures are outlined in CCSD’s Hybrid Instructional Model Implementation Guide available online in English and Spanish at reconnect.ccsd.net.

Governor Sisolak’s easing of restrictions last week has provided an expedited route to open our schools and that is what we intend to do. The team immediately started to work on what the change in restrictions means for our students, including a date for each grade level to return to school.

CCSD Opening Timeline

March 1 - All Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 3 students can return to face-to-face instruction under the hybrid instructional model  (CURRENT)

March 22 -  Grades 6, 9, & 12 can return to face-to-face instruction under the hybrid instructional model

April 6 - Grades 7, 8, 10 & 11 can return to face-to-face instruction under the hybrid instructional model

April 6 - Pre-Kindergarten through grade 5 can return to five days a week face-to-face instruction

We will continue to offer a full-time distance education option to our families who feel more comfortable keeping their children at home.

Athletics & Extracurricular Activities:  The District is also working to allow students to participate in athletics and extracurricular activities.

--Staggered to avoid forcing students to choose a single sport

--These intramural/intrasquad sports will have a 20 day practice/competition window

--No spectators will be allowed at any CCSD athletics events

--School athletics will follow all guidelines from CCSD, the state, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association (NIAA)

Performing Arts

Students will be able to engage in live learning and traditional rehearsals

Safety protocols will be implemented to ensure the safest possible return to face-to-face instruction

Similar to athletics, students will be permitted to engage in outside of class activities and rehearsals like, marching band, drill team, theater

To ensure continued safety of our community, performing arts classes will have the option of engaging in streamed concerts for the immediate future

Reopening schools, bringing back staff and students, and continuing a distance education model requires a lot of logistics and consideration. I ask for your patience as I continue to work with the Board of School Trustees to bring back all students and staff to face-to-face instruction safely.

As additional information becomes available, details will be shared with parents via ParentLink, and with all CCSD staff by email. Updated information will also be available online at reconnect.ccsd.net.
