Thousands of buses and drivers were busy getting ready this morning to pick up students all over the Las Vegas valley.
CCSD Superintendent Dr. Jesus Jara is also up early this morning, visiting bus yards and schools.
Great day in Clark County for our children! It’s going to be a great year for our 320,000+ students and 42,000 employees! And we are rolling... pic.twitter.com/QUozPEmHZX— Dr. Jesus F. Jara (@SuptJaraCCSD) August 12, 2019
Safety is a priority, of course. There are some new crosswalks in the valley school officials and police have been reminding everyone the last couple of weeks to be extra careful today.
Unfortunately, the school district is still looking for teachers and others. There are currently 750 teacher vacancies.
Proud to welcome the kids from Matt Kelly Elementary this morning! Thank you @NVYouthNetwork for all your tireless work on behalf of all our kids. Have a great first day of class! pic.twitter.com/0QUqHirzSv— Governor Sisolak (@GovSisolak) August 12, 2019
