Carson City School District provides additional guidance regarding school closures

Due to continued poor air quality that is expected to remain throughout Northwestern Nevada for what could be weeks or months, the Carson City School District will use the U.S. EPA “Air Now” website to determine whether school will be cancelled.  The EPA is a branch of the Federal Government.

At the beginning of each school day, the Superintendent of Schools will refer to the AirNow.gov Air Quality Index (AQI) and the day’s weather forecast. If the AQI is reported at or above 400 by AirNow.gov for the 89701 zip code by 5:30 a.m. and the weather forecast predicts that conditions are not expected to improve, all employees, students and families will be notified that school will be cancelled.

Additionally, if the school day begins and the AQI reaches or exceeds 400, school will remain in session for the day and students and staff will remain indoors.

On days when the Air Quality Index (AQI) is “Unhealthy” or above 150 AQI, all outdoor activities including athletics, physical education and recess will be canceled or moved indoors.

The district’s building management system adheres to fresh air standards and has taken steps prior to the start of school to contract with a HVAC specialist to perform an HVAC Readiness and Pre-Occupancy Assessment so that staff, students and families can return to the schools with confidence that they’ll be breathing clean air.

The district feels the safest and best place for students to learn during a school day is in their desk at school. However, parents are encouraged to use discretion. Students with respiratory or other pre-existing health conditions may require individual adaptation. Additionally, if parents have not already done so, the district is asking them to coordinate any medical related needs with the school nurse.

If at any time parents feel that conditions are unsafe to take or send their student to school, they may keep their child home for the day regardless of the district’s decision to keep the school open. The schools will support the parent’s decision and work with them to make up any schoolwork or assignments. However, students who do not attend school will be counted as absent.

On days when air quality is unhealthy, school buses will operate with all windows closed. For those concerned about their student(s) waiting outside at a bus stop or walking to school, the district invites families to make arrangements to transport their child(ren) to and from school and avoid the unhealthy conditions as best as possible.

The district also reminds families that if parents DO NOT receive a text, email or phone call or see a banner announcement on the district’s homepage, indicating a delayed start or school closure, schools will remain open and in session.

If schools are closed because of a natural disaster, inclement weather, accident or any other extraordinary circumstance, per instruction from the Nevada Department of Education, Smoke Days are not considered “days in school” regardless of the digital ability to provide remote instruction. Consequently, neither teachers nor students are expected to participate in remote learning activities during a canceled school day.

On days when school has been canceled, teachers should not assign homework using virtual means – and assignments will not be due until the next regular day of in-person school. Additionally, no student activities, schoolwork or programs will occur including remote instruction via Pioneer Academy. This includes school-course assignments, homework, after-school programs and practices. No school services such as transportation, nutrition or student health will be provided.

With any school closure, students and employees should expect an extension of the school year, further extending school days deeper into June. As such, families and employees should not schedule vacations or expect to exit the school year before calendar obligations are met. Click here for more information about school related closures.

Child Sex Ring Hammered operating in Carson City

From: Carson City Sheriff’s Office

Seven people have been arrested in a two-day sting led by the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Northern Nevada Child Exploitation and Human Trafficking Task Force. This operation jointly planned and conducted by the FBI, Carson City Sheriff’s Office: Special Enforcement Team (SET), and Reno Police Department’s Human Exploitation and Trafficking (HEAT) Unit, sought to identify and arrest people seeking to pay minors for sexual acts.

The FBI-funded operation arrested four men on Wednesday, August 18, 2021, and arrested three men on Thursday, August 19, 2021.  Throughout the operation, undercover detectives placed ads on websites commonly sought out by suspects seeking illegal sex acts.  The men solicited and/or brokered deals and arrived at a location in Carson City to knowingly engage in and pay for sex acts with a minor.

Most suspects were arrested on felony counts of soliciting a child for prostitution and attempted child abuse.  Some suspects are facing additional or alternate charges.  The men arrested in this operation include:

Rafael Sanchez-Pimental (DOB: 07/27/2000)
Martin Ramos-Flores (DOB: 01/11/1979)
Chiddo Luna (DOB: 08/27/1974)
Jesse Burkhardt (DOB: 09/20/1988)
Christopher Figueroa (DOB: 07/30/1986)
Arturo Martinez-Pintor (DOB: 04/11/1978)
Tyrone Schultz (DOB: 09/13/1976)

Sheriff Ken Furlong said, “I’m proud of and thankful to all the agencies that participated. Juvenile sex trafficking is a priority to the Carson City Sheriff’s Office and these stings will continue in an effort to reduce the demand that fuels the exploitation of children in our community.”

The FBI’s Northern Nevada Child Exploitation and Human Trafficking Task Force routinely conducts operations of this type in conjunction with regional law enforcement agencies.

The participating agencies in this two-day operation include: the Northern Nevada Regional Intelligence Center, the FBI Safe Streets Task Force, Homeland Security Investigations, Nevada Gaming Control Board Enforcement, Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, Washoe County Sheriff’s Office, Nevada Highway Patrol, Nevada Department of Parole and Probation, and Nevada Department of Corrections.
