COVID-19 Information

Per Governor Sisolak’s extension of the state’s emergency measures, all public schools, including public charter schools across Nevada, will be closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. Distance Education, which began on March 23, 2020, will continue at our schools.

Charter School leaders are working diligently to support their students, families and staff members during this challenging time. Parents and families are encouraged to reach out to their schools for more specific information about ongoing support.
