Update on COVID-19

Wednesday March 18, 2020Legacy Schools Closed Completely Until Further Notice in Nevada

Legacy Nevada Families,

We, like you, learned last night that Governor Sisolak has asked all Nevadans to stay home and close all nonessential businesses to the public for 30 days. See the Governor’s News conference here.

As a result, all Legacy schools in Nevada will close their campuses completely beginning at noon today, Wednesday, March 18, and will not be staffed, even minimally, until further notice.

At this time, we have been told schools are closed through April, 6, 2020. However, given the new 30-day closure, we do not yet have a date for when campuses will reopen. We are actively seeking clarity on this and will let you know as soon as information is available.

As the Governor has instructed, it is imperative that we follow guidelines and do all we can to limit the virus’ spread so health care workers and first responders on the front lines may stay well and tend to those in need.

What this means for our Legacy families and students:

We will continue to press diligently to create relevant grade-level lessons on pace with classroom curriculum and state standards. Through the technology of Google Classroom and an internet connection, we have already begun the preparation of our online lessons with roll-out on Monday, March 23.

Fortunately, since school began in August, you and your children have already formed good relationships with your teacher(s), understand the routines of lessons, homework and how to communicate via Google Classroom, phone and email. This past experience has prepared us and will serve to benefit all as we embark upon direct classroom instruction, in an online or email format, as parents and teachers.

We are committed to being a strong and resilient Nevada school community made of parents and teachers who know that the safety, health and education of our most treasured asset, your children, is our mission to accomplish, together.

Sincerely,

Eve Breier-Ramos, Ed.D.
Deputy Superintendent, Legacy Traditional Schools – Nevada
