A big thank you to the teachers and staff of the Carson City School District

Teacher Appreciation Week in Carson City 

Carson City — If there ever were a silver lining amid a pandemic, many parents, forced into homeschooling their student(s) via Remote Learning, may have discovered a new found appreciation for teachers. For National Teacher Appreciation Week in Carson City, principals, office managers and administrators alike have also found novel ways to recognize and celebrate educators.

Where schools typically provide a close proximity for teachers to celebrate together, social distancing has proven to be a challenge to recognize the endless hours and emotional attention educators devote continuously for their students.

Administrative staff throughout the Carson City School District, particularly from Fritsch and Seeliger Elementary Schools, have gone to ‘great lengths’ to show appreciation for their teachers. Many have driven several miles and delivered appreciation care packages, signs and other bags and goodies to each individual teacher’s home. ‘Thank You’ signs and other banners were also staked out on lawns or waved as proclamations to recognize all their hard work.

Since the teacher population covers a large geographical area (many teachers live outside of Carson City in areas north, south, east and west including Reno, Sparks, Dayton, Minden, Gardnerville, South Lake Tahoe, etc.), administrative teams racked up the miles to recognize each.

Additionally, online video messages from students, newsletters and drive-thru donut and fruit events have all been planned or have been published for teachers.

In line with National Teacher Appreciation Week, Carson City School District Superintendent Richard Stokes provided encouraging words and appreciation in a districtwide statement to all teachers and staff.

“Dear Friends,

There is no doubt that the 2020 school year will be a memorable time of our lives. For most, the conditions and experiences of the last two months have changed our personal and professional lives dramatically. We have gone from our comfortable and familiar school and personal routines to a world of change, confusion and fear. All around us, the lifestyle to which we have become accustomed has evolved at every turn. These changes have been especially notable in our professional venues and methods. Today our students stay home to attend school. Our instructional practices require interaction with our students from a remote stage. Conditions demand that we modify our techniques in order to maintain our most fundamental objective of teaching, supporting and nurturing our students.

I initially believed that these extraordinary times would be a brief inconvenience and life as we once knew it would return quickly. Now I find myself asking, “is this the new normal?” While many unanswered questions remain, important constants regarding the indomitable quality of the human spirit remain and give me hope. I recognize these importance qualities in each of you, our educators. Your creativity, your tenacity, your patience and your care for others are qualities that exist in great abundance in our teachers, nurses, support staff and administrators. How grateful I am to have you as colleagues. Thank you for your service, for your care and for your encouragement to the students and families of our community.

As we look to the future, I have great confidence we will not only prevail against the virus threat, but we will also thrive. The qualities that have carried us through difficult times in the past will continue to bless our lives as we face the present. I encourage you to continue to provide messages of encouragement and hope to our students and families. Our work is the most important of any other being done today. Thank you for being a positive influence in the lives of your students. With your skill and determination, what could be more appealing than creating a better world and a happier future.

Thanks for all you do. You are truly appreciated!”

Richard Stokes, Superintendent
Carson City School District

Nevada Law Enforcement Officers Memorial

The 23rd Annual Nevada Law Enforcement Officers Memorial

For 22 years, the Nevada Law Enforcement Officers Memorial hosted a ceremony to bear witness to the unification of statewide law enforcement agencies and honor Nevada’s officers killed in the line of duty. Today marks the 23rd annual Nevada Law Enforcement Memorial, whereas the memorial did not host agencies statewide, rather with heavy consideration to the lives of Nevada’s Law Enforcement Officers, the safety of their families and communities, this memorial service was performed with limited attendance. Since 1861, 134 officers have either died or been killed in Nevada. This year, no names were presented on the memorial. Next year’s memorial will honor Nevada Highway Patrol Sergeant Ben Jenkins, an Elko native who gave his life to serve and protect Nevada communities.

The Carson City Sheriff’s Office filmed the wreath laying to allow communities witness and honor the memorial during a global pandemic. All are encouraged to join the memorial spirit and shine a blue light on their front porch steps through the month of May. Additionally, shining blue lights outside businesses and residences during the month of May, will serve as a beacon of support for all peace officers and a tribute to those killed in the line of duty.

Carson City Sheriff Ken Furlong said “It is essential that even in these times of restricted movements and social gatherings that we continue to honor those law enforcement officers who have in our history given their lives for the protection of society. The acknowledgement of their losses, the devastation to their families, friends, and communities, should never be overlooked, even in these most trying times of the Coronavirus pandemic.”

Carson City Supervisors “punt” on accepting grants for more firefighters…

Carson City Supervisors today decided to wait a year before applying for federal grants to expand the town’s firefighting force.  Although the department was given hefty credit for doing a good job of protecting the public from fires, gas leaks, traffic crashes and the like, the FEMA grants came with strings attached.  If they accepted the grants, the fire department would be bound to an agreement that once hired, the additional 6 to 9 firefighters could not be laid off due to unforeseen circumstances.

The supervisors acknowledged that the fire department needs four firefighters per engine which the FEMA grants would provide. But if the nation’s economy fails to regain “full health” quickly, it could force cuts to other departments city-wide – not the least of which is street rehabilitation.

In the end, the Supervisors, including former Fire Chief – now City Supervisor Stacey Giomi – agreed to postpone applying for the extra positions until the economy improves enough so the city could not only hire, but also retain the higher level of firefighting personnel.

A little blip of light at the end of the tunnel…maybe…

Corona Virus still very much with us…

Governor Sisolak told all Nevadans Thursday that if they want to frequent retail stores, barber shops, hair salons and maybe a brewpub or two they can start imbibing starting tomorrow.

Governor Sisolak said Nevadans, as a whole, did a great job of staying close to home to help push down the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic.  And because of that, Nevada’s economic recovery might be a little ahead of the game.  Sisolak re-assured all Nevadans that “We are not done with this fight.  We still need a vaccine and it may take a while to happen.  We need to have sufficient patience to have fewer patients in our hospitals.”

Sisolak said the state is not expected to open additional businesses until May 30th and kept open the possibility that conditions could decay again due to a possible re-spiking of new surge of the virus.

Restaurants and retail outlets, given this weekend’s re-opening, cannot re-fill their normal spaces  –  only half of their available seating capacity will be allowed and there will be no salad or beverage bars.   Barber shops and salons without partitions between “stations” will require 6-foot separations between customers.   Same for marijuana outlets, along with car dealerships and drive-in movie outlets.  Also, employees working at the aforementioned retail outlets, MUST wear face masks – and again masks should be encouraged for customers as well.

Casinos, bars, nightclubs, gyms and large sports facilities will remain closed for the time being – closed during phase one of the state’s reopening plan.  But the governor pointed out that because Washoe County has seen an increase in hospitalizations it might force the state to maintain Washoe County’s lockdown status – that decision resting partially with the Washoe County Commission.

Nevada State Prison steps in to supply medical gowns, facemasks and more

When the White House fails to perform, Nevada’s Prison System steps in.

When the Great White Father fails to provide what medical personnel needs to treat Covid19 vicitims, it appears that we can always turn to our Nevada State Prison officials and inmates to step in and get’er done.  Here’s the story –

Silver State Industries Produces Gowns and Masks to Protect Nevadans During COVID-19 Pandemic

Silver State Industries, the industrial arm of the Nevada Department of Corrections (NDOC), has launched a manufacturing program to produce medical gowns and masks to help protect Nevadans during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“NDOC has the experience, equipment, and manpower needed to mass-produce personal protective equipment,” said Charles Daniels, Director of NDOC. “The global shortage is putting people at risk of contracting COVID-19, and our department is doing its part by helping meet this urgent demand for medical gowns and masks.”

NSP Inmates rushing supplies to local hospitals.

The production involves more than one hundred offenders at Lovelock Correctional Center (LCC) and Northern Nevada Correctional Center (NNCC) who work around the clock in assembly-line fashion to help meet the demand for this life-saving equipment.

Creating a medical gown requires fabric that is 65% cotton and 35% polyester, and 1⁄4‐inch elastic. This material is delivered to LCC and NNCC, where its fed into the assembly line.

Two offenders start the process by cutting a cotton sheet into a 3 x 6-foot rectangle. The fabric then passes through multiple stations where offenders attach the left and right sleeves, collar, left and right wristbands, left and right arms, and belt. With all of the pieces inplace, the gown is serged together with a two-up / two-down weave, and hemmed where the cloth edge is folded narrowly and sewn to prevent unravelling. Then the elastic parts are added. Next, offenders performing a quality control check, gently fold the gowns and package 100 into a box, and prepare the boxes for shipment.

The Nevada Department of Corrections is committed to building a safer community by striving to incorporate progressive best practices in all aspects of corrections. NDOC houses nearly 13,000 persons with felony convictions in 18 facilities statewide. For more information visit www.doc.nv.gov.

Generous gift to Carson High School’s Greenhouse

$25,000 Grant Awarded to the Expansion of Carson High’s Greenhouse

The Carson City School District wishes to thank the William N. Pennington Foundation for their $25,000 grant to be used on a much-needed outdoor classroom and office expansion at The Greenhouse Project’s (TGP) main location at Carson High School.

The Carson City School District has partnered with TGP since 2011 in providing work-based learning opportunities for local students and other community youth. In addition, TGP has provided a variety of learning opportunities for individuals in greenhouse and garden settings that promote public wellness, education and career opportunities.

Over the past year, the Carson City School District has worked with TGP’s Board of Directors, local business partners, students and supports to design and plan for a construction project at Carson High School. In fact, students from Carson High’s Civil Engineering and Architecture classes worked alongside TGP staff to design the outdoor classroom structure. The classroom and expanded office space was deemed a crucial next step due to the growing number of students and volunteers taking advantage of the facilities.

“The overall budget for the construction project was projected to cost $97,825,” said Richard Stokes, superintendent for the Carson City School District. “TGP has already raised $72,775 in cash and donations, so the additional $25,000 from the William N. Pennington Foundation makes this project a reality.”

Carson man accused of attempted sexual assault of a girl under 14

Carson City Sheriff’s Deputies monday morning got a tip that a male had just dropped off a young girl after allegedly trying to force a sexual act on her.  A description of the man went out over the radio and it wasn’t long before deputies spotted the man and his car near the Carson City Aquatic Center.

Deputies caught up with the man who was immediately detained. Deputies say that the black BMW described by the girl also had markings that led deputies to believe they had the right suspect. Kahlil Williams, 24, was taken the to Carson City Jail.

Deputies say the girl left her apartment and walked across Hot Springs Road to intercept a school bus to get bag lunches from the school district. While waiting for the bus a man in a black BMW pulled up and offered her a dollar bill. She got into the car and the driver immediately started driving away from the food mart. The man drove behind a motel where the man tried to remove her clothing. The girl told deputies she screamed NO!!, whereupon the man stopped his behavior and proceeded to drive the girl back to a spot near her home, forced her out of the car and he drove away.

The girl told her aunt what had happened. She called 9-1-1 and it wasn’t long before deputies spotted the BMW parked next to the city’s Aquatic Center. Deputies approached the man, identified him as a prime suspect in the incident, arrested him and took him to jail. Kahlil Williams, 24, was booked on charges of Kidnapping, Attempted Sexual Assault, Lewdness with Minor and False Imprisonment. His bail was set at $250,000.

U.S. Senators: The Federal Government is dragging its feet on aid to Native Americans

Merkley, Wyden, Colleagues to Treasury: Disburse $8 Billion in Critical COVID-19 Relief to Tribal Governments Immediately

Treasury has not distributed any of the emergency funding

Washington, D.C. – Oregon’s U.S. Senators Jeff Merkley and Ron Wyden, along with 22 of their colleagues in the Senate, are urging Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin to immediately disburse $8 billion in critical relief funds to eligible federally recognized Tribal governments.

The funding, which was allocated by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, is critical to helping Tribal governments—just like their state, local and territorial counterparts—respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and continue providing essential government services to their communities. But, as of May 1, the Treasury Department has not distributed any of the funding.

“The CARES Act was passed over a month ago and contained an express statutory deadline for distribution of the CRF to Tribal governments; however, to date Treasury has not distributed any of this critical funding.  While disbursement of the $8 billion reserved for Tribal governments from the CRF was initially delayed due to litigation, the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia’s April 27 Order makes clear that there are no legal barriers to releasing CRF funding to Tribal governments,” wrote the senators.

Senators Merkley and Wyden have recognized that some of the health and economic challenges caused by the coronavirus are felt hardest among tribal communities—and the federal government is not doing enough overall to help tribes. To support tribes, the Senators are pushing not only for the expedient dispersal of the funding, but are also advocating for additional flexible, dedicated resources in upcoming coronavirus emergency relief legislation for tribal communities.

 

CC Sheriff’s Office needs our help…

Carson Middle School: Award for “Providing Pathways in Computer Science, Engineering and Bio-Medical Science”

Carson City Middle School Recognized as Distinguished STEM School

Carson Middle School has been recognized as a Distinguished School for performing an exemplary Project Lead The Way (PLTW) program. Only 176 schools across the country received the top honors for their commitment to student engagement and access.  Two schools in Las Vegas, one school in Reno, and Carson Middle School in Carson City

“This nomination is only given to schools with a large enrollment of the school population in the PLTW program, which, in our case, also includes underrepresented populations and Free and Reduced Lunch (FRL) students,” said Katelyn O’Loughlin, sixth grade STEM teacher at Carson Middle School. “We have a distinguished STEM program because of our hard work and dedication to serving our students. Our deep belief that all children can achieve and deserve a STEM education makes a difference.”

Through the PLTW program, students developed STEM knowledge as well as in-demand, transportable skills that they will use both in school and for the rest of their lives, on any career path they take. PLTW Gateway empowers students to lead their own discovery and uncover a range of paths and possibilities they can look forward to in high school and beyond.

Carson Middle School uses gateway PLTW classes to bridge students into the Carson High School CTE program. They strive to align with the high schools in terms of Career and College Readiness standards. They also have programs at the middle school level that feed into High School Programs, such as Robotics club, Health Sciences, Information and Media Technologies and Skilled and Technical Sciences.

In all STEM classes, the school includes a unit or incorporate different careers related to a particular STEM field of study. This helps students to learn about those careers so they can start to plan a pathway for high school and beyond. The STEM classrooms also create real-world work environments where students get to imagine and design solutions by listening to others and sharing their ideas.

Project Lead the Way Classes offered through the Carson Middle School STEM Program include the following.
App Creators
Automation and Robotics
Computer Science for Innovators and Makers
Design and Modeling
Energy and the Environment
Flight and Space
Green Architecture
Medical Detectives

Carson Middle and Eagle Valley Middle School are numbered among the more than 11,500 schools across the U.S. in offering PLTW programs to students.  Awards in Nevada went to two Las Vegas schools, one in Reno and Carson High School.
