First day back to school canceled because of weather

Published 11:38 am Tuesday, February 16, 2021

Clark County Public Schools students were supposed to have returned to hybrid A/B in-person learning this week with the A Group returning to schools Tuesday, Feb. 16 according to the regular, pre-COVID start times. But ice, sleet and snow made roads unsafe to travel.

Because of inclement weather forecasts this week, school officials will monitor conditions and in case of the need for school closures, will communicate with families by normal processes: television notifications, school websites, the district website, district social media accounts and school messenger phone notifications
