The Washoe County School District will continue providing educational materials for students through its Distance Learning Program after Gov. Steve Sisolak ordered schools remain closed through April 30, 2020. 

This second phase of materials is available online, but that isn’t accessible to every student.

“We encourage our families to download the lessons online whenever possible, but we recognize that not all of our families have access to computers,” WCSD Interim Superintendent Dr. Kristen McNeill said.

For those who can’t access the materials online, physical copies of the packets will be made available for pick up. WCSD Transportation employees will be distributing the materials from yellow school buses from Thursday, April 16 to Saturday, April 18 at locations throughout the community. WCSD has created a schedule of when and where to pick up those materials.

Students and families are encouraged to practice social distancing when picking up the packets.
