     The following are a few things to keep in mind: 

    1. Schools are closed. During this time there will be minimal staff on site to assist families, please call (775)-265-6100 if you have questions or concerns.
    2. Please check the school and district websites daily for updated information.
    3. Teachers will begin digital instruction on Monday March 23rd. Teachers will contact you via Email, Google Classroom, Google Meet, or Remind if they haven't already. 
    4. Teachers will hold digital office hours from 9:00am - 2:30pm. The best way to contact the teacher will be through email.  If you are unable to contact your teacher via email, please call (775)-265-6100.
