Weather Related School Closure Update All Nye County Schools in Pahrump, Amargosa, Beatty, Tonopah, and Gabbs will reopen tomorrow as planned. Please be cautious when walking to bus stops and schools. Round Mountain Schools will remain closed due to road conditions. The reopening of Round Mountain Schools will be assessed daily, and notifications will be sent to the community members in the later afternoon.
Due to the Declaration of Local Emergency of the Nye County Board of Commissioners and the recommendation to shelter in place, the Nye County School District will be closing schools tomorrow, Monday, August 21, 2023. This decision was made out of extreme caution for the safety of all Nye County School District students and staff. We are in communication with the Director of Emergency Management for Nye County, Chief Scott Lewis. We will continue to send updates if the situation changes through all school websites and Facebook: https://www.nye.k12.nv.us/live-feed. Currently our plan is for schools to return to normal schedules on Tuesday, August 22, 2023. If this changes, we will send another emergency update through all channels: phone message, email, text, all websites, and Facebook pages. Please stay home and be safe. Documents regarding the weather and the emergency declaration can be seen here: https://www.nye.k12.nv.us/documents/announcements-%26-press-releases/2023-2024-announcements%2C-prs-%26-memos/2023-08-21---county-emergency-declaration/506111.
A huge THANK-YOU to everyone who donated and volunteered for VEA's annual "Fill the Bucket Truck" school supply drive on Saturday.
NCSO and NCSD are aware of the social media posts threatening violence at schools tomorrow, May 10, 2023. A thorough investigation was conducted and it was determined that the threatening post originated outside of Nevada and was directed at a school in Clark County. NCSO has determined there is no credible threat to any NCSD schools. Out of an abundance of caution, patrols will be increased so there is a more visible NCSO presence around our schools.
The Nye County Sheriffs Office received information regarding an unsubstantiated threat across multiple Nevada school districts today. Due to this, all schools are implementing "Stay-Put" procedures, limiting movement around and within campus. If students are required to be outside for transitioning between classes, they will be accompanied by an employee. Sheriff McGill also has deputies driving by, visiting, and monitoring campuses for safety through dismissal time. Schools will follow normal dismissal times and procedures.
