    Hello Van Gorder Parents & Students!


     Distance Learning 8/17/20-June (dates are subject to change). 


    The Washoe County School District has provided assignments for students to complete while on our distance learning program. The Elementary Distance Learning section will provide you and your child the information you need in the coming weeks to keep your child learning while at home. As you begin to work with your child on these assignments at home, teachers and staff are here to work virtually with all students and families. 

    Our amazing Van Gorder teachers are still going to meet with you face to face on Zoom (video chat) weekly. This means every week you will get to meet with your teacher and/or your whole class using an online video chat platform! Parents, teachers will be sending you an invite on when they will meet with their students as a class or individually!

    It is our goal to reach out to our students and families as much as possible during this new learning experience and difficult time for our community. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need anything. Here is our Staff Directory.

    We would like all of our Van Gorder students and families to know that we miss you all and we are here for you! Stay healthy and Stay Home for Nevada!
