The Washoe County School District is holding two public meetings next week that address zoning countywide and a new high school design.

A zoning information meeting is planned at 6 p.m. March 19 at Traner Middle School, 1700 Carville Drive. Attendance boundaries are being studied as the district prepares to open three new schools in time for the 2019-20 school year:

  • Poulakidas Elementary School will be at Veterans and South Meadows parkways in South Reno.
  • Sky Ranch Middle School will be located between David Allen and Kiley parkways in Sparks.
  • Desert Skies Middle School will be off Donatello Drive on the north end of Sun Valley.

An informational meeting that will include updates on the new high school at the Wildcreek Golf Course is scheduled at 5:30 p.m. March 21 in the cafeteria at Hug High School, 2880 Sutro St.

The presentation will focus on the current status of site development and building organization. Representatives from the school district and the architectural team will be on hand to answer questions.

Plans are to close Hug High School at the end of the 2020-21 school year and send students to the new school, which has yet to be named, in fall 2021. Hug would then reopen as a career and technical academy in fall 2022.
