Northern Families of Nye County School District,

With the ever-changing climate of COVID-19, we have worked to develop a schedule that will suit the needs of both in-person and online learners in our Northern Schools so that they can be supported by their assigned teacher.  Students who attend Amargosa Schools, Beatty Schools, Round Mountain Schools, and Tonopah Schools currently have the option of either attending in-person or attending online.  The schedule you see below has been adjusted for both in-person and online learners so our teachers can best meet the needs of all students during this unprecedented time.  

If you choose to have your student participate in online learning, you will need to fill out the Distance Learning Contract.  You can access this contract either in person at your child’s assigned school or on the Nye County School District website here.  This form will be due to your student’s secretary (in-person, via fax, or e-mail) no later than August 6th.  

Another survey will also be sent to you on Wednesday, July 29th asking you for your preference for your students' education during the 2020-2021 school year.  Please take the time to complete this survey, one per student, as it will help administrators determine class sizes and social distancing measures.

We also want to inform you that lockers will not be available for student use.  You are advised to purchase your student (K-12th grade) a backpack with a laptop sleeve in it as they will bring their Chromebook to and from school daily.  If we have not yet received your child’s Chromebook back from the spring, we will not issue another until it is received.  To protect the health and safety of our staff and students, parents and families will not be able to walk their students to their individual classrooms.
