Aug. 27 is now the official start date for USD 251 North Lyon County.

The Board of Education approved the new date during a special meeting Thursday evening. Superintendent Bob Blair says the new date will allow ample time for teachers to prepare not only for the coming year but also for contingency plans in the event schools move back to a remote-only learning model.

USD 251 will be offering both in-person and remote learning options for students this year, however, Blair tells KVOE News it appears most families and students are ready for a return to in-person education.

While the number of families seeking online learning is relatively small, Blair says the district is committed to meeting the needs of all patrons, hence the option for how families would like to have their students attend. Students who go the online route will still be permitted to participate in extracurricular activities.

Mask usage, among other prevention strategies, will be required for students at all grade levels during times where social distancing cannot be maintained. If you missed the board meeting Thursday, you can view it in its entirety on the district's Facebook page.
