In-Person Learning for Carson City 7-8 Graders, 4-days per week, to Begin March 23
The Carson City School District School Board of Trustees voted unanimously to offer in-person, on-campus instruction to all seventh and eighth graders, four days a week, Tuesdays through Fridays. The first official day of this more traditional education model will begin at the start of the final fourth quarter, Tuesday, March 23rd. The district previously announced a return to four-days-per-week, in-person learning for 3rd to 6th grade students Jan. 19, 2021 and all Pre-K to 2nd graders Oct. 20th.
“Students and families currently enrolled in the full-remote model at any school will continue to have the option to remain in the full-remote model if they choose,” said Richard Stokes, superintendent for the Carson City School District. “Hybrid students not interested in attending 4-days per week may elect to transition to full-remote learning. Further adjustments to school operations may be made if additional restrictions are removed.” (more…)
Two armed men stormed an apartment on Woodside Drive Monday afternoon. The two men ordered the occupants to turn over ten thousand dollars in valuables including weapons. The occupants of the apartment told the armed men that they were holding up the wrong apartment and for them to leave – which they did – rather rapidly.
Perhaps figuring things out a little more clearly, the two armed men eventually showed up later that evening at another apartment on Woodside. According to authorities Carson City Sheriff’s Deputies got wind of what was happening and made a B-line to the other apartment in the area – still close to the original incident location. Deputies quickly figured out “who-was-who-and-what-was-what” over disputed property and the two original intruders were arrested.
Deputies booked both gunmen into the Carson City Jail where they were charged with home invasion and burglary among other charges.
The shot that cures
Have You Been Fully Vaccinated?
People are considered fully vaccinated:
- 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, like the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or
- 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, like Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine
If it has been less than 2 weeks since your shot, or if you still need to get your second dose, you are NOT fully protected. Keep taking all prevention steps until your vaccine is circulating through your body. That can take up to two to three weeks. So you’re still on a short leash – and even then the Centers for Disease Control wants us to keep wearing our masks until at least Thanksgiving.
