The Washoe County School District Board of Trustees and District Leadership share our community’s concerns about the novel coronavirus. We are collaborating with WCSD Student Health Services, Washoe County Health District, State of Nevada, and federal health officials to determine the best course of action to protect our students and staff members.
The District has established a Reopening Task Force, a group comprised of key stakeholders including health officials, business leaders, parents, and District staff. The Task Force is currently weighing all options for a safe return to school in the fall. All information regarding reopening plans will be posted here.
Culture and Community
As our community responds to COVID-19, please remember that transmission of the coronavirus is not based on a person's race or country of origin. If you overhear hurtful or misinformed comments, please speak up. We are in this together, so please be kind to one another.
