LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The Clark County School District shared the below message Wednesday evening on the final day of the 2019-2020 school year:
As we come to the end of this unprecedented school year, we want to send a special thanks to our educators, parents, students, and the community for coming together to support one another through the constantly evolving COVID-19 situation.
Today marks the last day of the 2019-2020 school year for students. With the end of the scheduled school year, teachers will no longer be making weekly contacts with students but learning extension opportunities will continue to be provided throughout the summer to promote students’ readiness for the upcoming school year. We encourage students to continue reading and learning throughout the summer.
Schools will be communicating plans with parents on how they can collect personal items that were left in facilities during school closures once health and CDC guidelines allow the process to take place.
CCSD plans to continue providing meals to students through June 30 at current food distribution sites, including serving meals Memorial Day on May 25. Meals at the majority of CCSD’s food distribution sites are served Monday - Friday from 7 a.m. – 10 a.m. and are free for any child 2 – 18 years old. Find more information here.
A federal extension allowed by the USDA gives CCSD the flexibility to continue meal service through August. CCSD plans to continue serving meals during the summer but may adjust food distribution sites and times based on the demand for meals during the months of July and August. Any changes to CCSD meal sites after June 30 will be communicated to parents via a ParentLink message.
CCSD students who have school-issued Chromebooks and other devices are allowed to keep the devices over the summer. Schools will be making special arrangements for seniors to return their devices.
The District plans to continue distributing Chromebook devices to students throughout the summer in an effort to encourage independent learning. More information on distribution events will be provided as plans are finalized.
With the end of the school year, the Wi-Fi bus pilot program will conclude on May, 21. For a list of community resources, including free Wi-Fi hotspots, see here.
It has been determined that the 2020 summer school will be provided through distance education due to COVID-19. The summer school will be held virtually. Secondary students will see a decreased cost of $70 per half-credit. For more information, view the 2020 Virtual Summer School/Credit Retrieval page.
The Extended School Year, ESY program, which supports summer learning for identified students with disabilities will be provided through distance education beginning in June.
Parents with students participating in the ESY program through distance education will receive additional information through US mail in late May.
SafeVoice is still monitored during the summer. The District continues to work with the Nevada Department of Education regarding SafeVoice tips. Reports may be made by calling 1-833-216-SAFE (7233) or online.
Families new to CCSD may begin their registration process online. Parents or guardians who already have an Infinite Campus account will see an announcement through the Parent Portal and a link connecting them to the 2020-21 registration page.
