Foundation Supports WNC Jump Start, Seeks Donations for Textbooks

The Carson City Schools Foundation (CCSF), in support of the Carson City School District, seeks community donors to match its efforts to ‘Sponsor a Student’ for the Western Nevada College (WNC) Jump Start College program. From now through June 30, 2021, the foundation is supporting and will match community sponsorships up to $6,250 total to help make up the cost of textbooks and materials for the up-coming school year.

The Jump Start College program is a dual-enrollment opportunity for high school students to experience college courses through WNC while simultaneously earning high school credits. Jump Start College participants are able to complete up to 60 college credits through WNC, often earning them an associate’s degree around the same time they earn their high school diploma. Earning an associate’s degree while simultaneously graduating from high school helps participants save nearly two years’ worth of money in college tuition.

The grant funding for the joint program with WNC was canceled earlier this year. The Carson City School District plans to continue to support the program through the Distributive Student Account (DSA) as part of its commitment to College and Career Ready curriculum, but this support did not include the cost of books and materials.

The approximate cost for Jump Start College materials for the projected enrollment of 125 students is expected to be $12,500 or $100 per student. The Foundation has committed funds for half of the amount and is looking for community support in donations to match their commitment. If the foundation exceeds the total amount needed for Jump Start, additional funds raised and donated by the community will be added to other grant programs including Department and Individual Student grants and the foundation’s popular Mini-Grant program, which supports teachers and staff with funding for creative, educational projects traditional funding sources may not reach.

“We have a very generous community here in Carson City, and I know there are many businesses and community partners that would be more than willing to assist the Carson City Schools Foundation in supporting this effort,” Steven Reynolds, chairperson of the CCSF Board, said. “What I’ve found though, is many are unaware of specific needs such as these.”

Carson City School District will require masks through remainder of school year

This is the image for the news article titled Carson City School District will require masks through remainder of school year

Submitted by the Carson City School District

It is good news to hear the CDC has eased outdoor and indoor mask-wearing guidance. We are hopeful of more normality on the horizon. However, to be more fully clear for our parents, families, employees and educators, the Carson City School District will continue to follow the health and safety protocols that currently exists within the district and the COVID-19 Mitigation Transition Plan set forth by the Carson City Board of Supervisors. Therefore, for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year, masks will continue to be required indoors and where individuals are unable to socially distance, regardless of vaccination status.

Face coverings must be worn on all school campuses and sites, on school buses and during school-associated activities by all students, faculty, staff, contractors and visitors. We will revisit the plan this summer and make any necessary changes prior to the start of school, but we do look forward to the possibilities of normal “school as usual” for the coming 2021-2022 school year.

For more information, please contact the Carson City School District at 775-283-2100.

Suspicious Fire Damages At Least Two Apartments at Parkway Plaza Apartments Off College Parkway

Fire damages two apartments at Parkway Plaza off College Parkway.

The highly flammable outdoor plants looked like an explosion went off.

A fire broke out at Parkway Plaza Apartments off College Parkway Saturday afternoon. The blaze may have been started by children playing with matches among very flammable bushes growing next to an outside wall, according to neighbors. Due to the tinder dry conditions and breezy winds the burning plants quickly ignited the outside wall of the apartments. The fire quickly raced up to the second floor and started burning parts of the upstairs apartment.  All tenants escaped without injury.  Rhino Roofing employees who were working on another part of the building went door to door, helping to evacuate residents.

The fire was quickly extinguished by fast moving Carson City Firefighters. But the damage was still terrible. In fact a number of other connected apartments were rendered unlivable due to the fire’s damage to the building’s electrical and natural gas system. A number of tenants were given shelter by The Red Cross. Again, no injuries but a lot of personal property was likely lost. An investigation by the Carson City Fire Department may like take a few days to complete.
