As additional information has become available, we are sending this letter as a follow-up to the previous communication sent on April 5, 2020.

The employee referenced as being ill has had a negative coronavirus (COVID-19) test result reported. We took the proactive step of informing parents and employees about this situation out of an abundance of caution. We take the health and wellbeing of our community seriously.

Thank you for your patience and we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. We continue to ask that anyone working at this location in the future, like all work locations, maintain the social distancing and cleaning protocols already in place.

The Centennial High School Food Distribution site will reopen on Wednesday, April 8 during its regular hours from 9 a.m. - noon.

APRIL 6 UPDATE: A member of the Clark County School District Police Department who was assisting the Centennial High School food distribution site is sick and so that location is closing down as a precautionary measure.

CCSD said they provided 7,600 meals to students through the food distribution pods on the first day. On a typical school day, CCSD serves about 100,000 breakfasts and 175,000 lunches for a total of 275,000 meals.

Parents can also pick up academic resources at these sites. Clark High School Principal Kerry Larnerd said the goal is to make sure kids stay safe and healthy during this time away from school.

"We really need to be there for our families, be here for our students especially, no matter what’s going on out around us and in the community but this is so vital to keep our kids going through the next few weeks," said Larnerd.

Many parents picking up food for their kids Monday said this assistance is needed during such a stressful time.

"It makes sure they have a healthy meal, it takes a little stress off me having to fix them a meal," said Tiffany Hill, mom of four.

"They eat a lot. They’re all going through growth spurts at the same time so it does make it very hard, very hard," said Kay-la Shows, mom of five with one more on the way.

In order to comply with federal regulations, a school-age child must be present for food to be distributed. The pickup location will be set up outside of the school sites to facilitate distribution.

CCSD is working with its rural communities to set up food distribution and will communicate to these communities directly.

Additionally, CCSD will be working with our government and community partners to set up food distribution options to ensure our students have access to additional food. Information on these options will be shared with parents as soon as it is available.
