Nevada County schools to resume in-person classes 5 days a week for 2021-22 year

Dear students, parents, guardians, and community members: As the 2020-21 school year comes to a close, we are grateful for the patience, flexibility and perseverance that students, parents, and staff exhibited during these unprecedented times.

We understand the sacrifice so many of you had to make to work around ever-changing school schedules, Zoom meetings, distance learning (synchronous and asynchronous) and additional COVID-19 protocol.

As we look expectantly toward the 2021-22 school year, it is our intention to open in full capacity, five days per week for in-person, on-site learning.

We anticipate that there may be residual COVID-19 protocol required, under the direction of the Nevada County Public Health Office, but our hope is that we will return to some normalcy following the summer break. We will update you as more information becomes available,but in the meantime wish you a safe and healthy summer.
