Posted at 12:01 AM, Feb 12, 2021

CLARK COUNTY (KTNV) — Clark County School District leaders and the Clark County Association of School Administrators and Professional-Technical Employees, or CCASAPE, approved an agreement on Thursday to bring pre-K through third-grade students back for hybrid learning.

The approved Memorandum of Agreement includes safety protocols and standards based on guidance from the Southern Nevada Health District and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention including:

  • Daily symptom screening
  • Monthly COVID-19 testing
  • COVID-19 contact tracing
  • Providing personal protective equipment to all employees
  • Strict and thorough classroom and building sanitation

The district also says:

On March 1, 2021, all elementary schools in CCSD will welcome pre-kindergarten to 3rd-grade students for families who would like their child to return to campus for face-to-face instruction.

Our instructional model of full-time distance education will continue as well for families.

Throughout the second semester, the District will work to transition additional grade levels to the hybrid instructional model; however, there is currently no timeline for this transition.

The district says it has been working closely with SNHD officials throughout the pandemic and will continue to do so to safeguard the health and safety of students, families and employees.
