On Sunday September 6, the Carson City School District reported its first positive COVID-19 case. According to the District, the individual works in the transportation department.
The District has been working with Carson City Health and Human Services on contact tracing, and due to the undisclosed number of employees who have been advised to isolate from the confirmed case, the Carson City School District has decided to temporarily halt all transportation and bus services.
Based on the last day of exposure, those identified will quarantine for the recommended isolation period and transportation services will resume as soon as possible. The District estimates the earliest transportation will resume will be September 15, though it may take longer if more employees test positive.
Classroom teachers will provide students who will be excluded from school for the 14-day isolation period with distance learning opportunities.
Additionally, the school district asks that all parents and families make arrangements to transport their child(ren) to and from school on their assigned cohort days. Any families unable to transport their student(s) to and from school will be able to participate in school learning via full-remote online until transportation services are able to resume.
