Initiative “101 Days of Summer”
The Carson City Sheriff’s Office is providing another public safety announcement with information on vehicle registration, driver’s license, and car insurance requirements. If your vehicle registration is about to expire you may renew your registration online or by mail. There is no grace period and you do not need to make an appointment at the DMV to register your vehicle for renewal. Simply renew the registration online or through a kiosk at the DMV without waiting in line. If you purchased a new vehicle at a dealership you may also register your vehicle online without the need to wait in line at the DMV. If your temporary vehicle permit has expired the DMV may provide a 30-day extension ($2.00 dollar DMV fee) so you may legally drive your vehicle with a current moving permit. If you purchase a vehicle via private sale you must have your vehicle registered legally in order drive on public roadways.
Drivers licenses may also be renewed online. Most Nevada drives are eligible for online renewal. Your license may be mailed to you with your existing photo. Qualifications are ages 16-70, for 4- or 8-year non-commercial driver’s license, renew up to 60 days prior to expiration or 364 after, use the Address Change transaction if you need to update your address. Your license will automatically renew if it is due within the next 60 days. If your license is suspended or revoked, you must visit the DMV in person.
The DMV backlog for appointments is about two to three months out. You may stand in line for walk in business. Carson City DMV lines are up to two to three hours wait time in the mornings and about an hour wait time for in the afternoons.
You are required to have proof of insurance while driving a motor vehicle. Evidence of insurance may be either by printed card or in an electronic format displayed on a mobile device. There is no need to visit a DMV office for most insurance issues. Use the Internet, telephone or mail. Your insurance must be written for Nevada and at least one of the named insured must appear on the vehicle registration. Minimum coverage is 25/50/20. If you drop the liability insurance on any vehicle for any reason, you must cancel the registration and surrender the license plates. You may cancel the registration through MyDMV and mail the plates. See Plate Surrender. If you are new to Nevada, you must notify your insurance company that you have moved here. Your policy must be written for Nevada. Out-of-state insurance is not accepted.
The Carson City Sheriff’s Office will enforce all vehicle registrations, car insurance violations, and driver’s license violations. If you have numerous of the above-mentioned violations, you could be subjected to having your vehicle towed. You may also receive additional incurred costs. You may contact the Carson City DMV for more information. Attached are links with more information on registration renewals, insurance information, and driver’s license renewal options.

A NOTE FROM OUR SUPERINTENDENT
As we enter the final stretch of this unprecedented and unusual school year, I am hopeful of more normality on the horizon. The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged us in so many ways, but we are seeing light at the end of the tunnel. More and more teachers and employees have received vaccinations. Our 7th and 8th graders were reintroduced to a more traditional education model where they attend school in-person, 4-days per week, while students at Carson High School remain in a hybrid model through the remainder of the school year. But we do look forward to the possibilities of normal “school as usual” for the coming 2021-2022 school year. We will continue to monitor the health conditions at the regional and local levels and will work collaboratively with government and industry leaders to help keep students and staff safe.
With the Governor’s announcement to return to full occupancy June 1, I am pleased with Carson High School’s decision to host an in-person graduation ceremony Sat., June 5. I was also glad to hear Carson High’s ability to host Prom for seniors who have endured so much this past year. As we press forward, we have plenty to celebrate and there is much to accomplish these last two weeks. I want to thank all of you for your service and commitment to our students and their families. I appreciate all that you do and am grateful to work alongside of each of you as we help to prepare our next generation of leaders.
Superintendent, Carson City School District
CARSON HIGH SCHOOL IN-PERSON GRADUATION SET FOR SATURDAY, JUNE 5
Carson High School will host a traditional in-person graduation ceremony for the Class of 2021, Saturday, June 5, 2021, starting at 9 a.m. The ceremony will take place on the football field. Attendees will be able to sit in the bleachers and other areas will be available such as grass areas and the outside edge of the football field. Attendees must wear a mask and are encouraged to sit with their families or selected pods. The high school asks that families/pods socially distance from each other.
Please remember that if the community health status takes a turn for the worse and the City or State guidance changes, Carson High School will have to adapt graduation plans to match health directives and expectations. More info here.
MASKS REQUIRED THROUGH REMAINDER OF THE SCHOOL YEAR
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. By taking this step, there will be less disruption to the school day and we can continue with the classroom habits that we have learned this year. 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.
NO MAKE UP DAYS REQUIRED FOR INCLEMENT WEATHER FOR STUDENTS
The Carson City School District is pleased to announce it meets or exceeds the minimum number of minutes taught per day, and in turn, students will not be required to make up the days lost due to a weather-related school cancellation at the end of the school year. The last day of school for students will remain Thursday, June 3. Teachers and staff, however, must return to school June 4, 7 and 8 to fulfill their contracts and receive professional development.
After reviewing CCSD’s submitted calendar revisions for the 2020-2021 school year, the Nevada Department of Education (NDOE) determined CCSD to be in compliance with NAC 387.120. NDOE formally approved the missed days (Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, September 15, 16 and 18, 2020 as well as Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, January 27, 28 and 29, 2021) and, based upon the annual instructional time, counted them as ‘days in session’ for the calendar school year 2020-2021.
5:38pm Report of a two vehicle crash on North Lompa and Bryan Circle. One vehicle took off. There doesn’t seem to be any serious injuries. Deputies are trying to track down the other driver who took off right after the accident.
License Revoked Until It’s Made Livable.
The Carson City Board of Supervisors today cancelled the business license for the Frontier Motel on North Carson Street meaning the owner cannot allow anyone to stay in the facility until its been cleaned up and a goodly amount of repairs are made to plumbing, heating and other aspects of the property. The motel owner repeatedly promised the Supervisors that he will make the repairs and renovations and strongly hinted he’ll get right on it.
Meanwhile, his tenants are spread throughout the region, staying in various facilities that cater to the homeless and low income residents. There was no specific timeline given to the motel owner but the Supervisors strongly inferred that the owner must bring his property up to code and up to living standards in a timely fashion if he wants to ever re-open the motel.
The Carson City School District has decided that despite the federal Centers for Disease Control announcing that wearing masks for the remainder of the school year are generally not needed, the school district announced, in so many words, ‘NOT SO FAST.’
School officials have decided that face masks will be worn in Carson City Schools. Although the CDC eased outdoor and indoor mask-wearing for those who are FULLY vaccinated (those who got their shots more than two weeks ago) – the school district determined it would still abide by orders set forth in the COVID-19 Mitigation Transition Plan established by the Carson City Board of Supervisors. The plan requires masks indoors and where individuals are unable to socially distance themselves regardless of when they received their last vaccination.
We ain’t outta the woods yet. Not by a long shot.
