Amargosa Kindergarten will not be starting school until Thursday, August 11, 2022. I will be doing special one-on-one testing on Tuesday, August 9, 2022 and Wednesday, August 10, 2022. Please call the school (775)372-5324 to set up a 30 minute appointment. The age requirements to start Kindergarten have changed as a result of the 2021 Legislative Session. Beginning in the 2022-2023 school year, a child must be five (5) years of age on or before the first day of the school year (August 8, 2022) in order to be admitted into Kindergarten. At this time, the Nevada Department of Education has guided us to make one exception. For the 2022-2023 school year only, any four-year-old who has attended one year of pre-Kindergarten and is ready to advance to Kindergarten will be allowed to do so. If you plan to enroll your child into Kindergarten for the 2022-2023 school year and your child is not currently attending pre-Kindergarten, your child must meet the new age requirement described above in order to be admitted. If you have not enrolled your child for school this year, please do so as soon as possible. Online registration (OLR) for the 2022-2023 school year will be open on March 14, 2022. Parents/Legal Guardians with students currently attending a Nye County School District school will access their OLR application through the parent portal. Parents/Legal Guardians with students new to Nye County School District will register directly through the OLR link. Directions on accessing OLR can be found on the Nye County School District website ( by clicking on Menu > Parents/Guardians > Registration and Enrollment. Thank You! Miss George, Kindergarten Teacher

Dear Parents, I want to thank you for your patience and the help that you have given your students as we have been in this Learning-at-a-Distance mode for the last two weeks. Unless Covid-19 numbers in Amargosa Valley rise significantly over the Winter Break, we will return to our Face-to-Face learning model on Monday, January 4th. Please make sure that your students bring their Chromebooks back to school when they return. To help other students and staff remain healthy, please do not allow any Covid-19 positive students to come back to school until they have met CDC guidelines for returning to public places. In addition, if any of your students are experiencing Covid symptoms, please follow the CDC Guidelines (test within 48 hours and self-quarantine for 10 days if they test positive). Ultimately, for us to stay open, we all need to be as careful and diligent as possible following CDC Guidelines with respect to social distancing, mask wearing, and sanitizing hands. In addition, please note that today is the final day that the Amargosa Valley School will be providing any meals until the second semester begins In many ways this semester has flown by – we really enjoy working with your students and feel good about the learning processes in our school. I am sure the staff joins with me in wishing you all a wonderful holiday season! Sincerely, Chuck Fannin, Principal, Amargosa Valley School Queridos padres, Quiero agradecerles por su paciencia y la ayuda que les han brindado a sus estudiantes ya que hemos estado en este modo de Aprendizaje a Distancia durante las últimas dos semanas. A menos que los números de Covid-19 en Amargosa Valley aumenten significativamente durante las vacaciones de invierno, volveremos a nuestro modelo de aprendizaje presencial el lunes 4 de enero. Asegúrese de que sus estudiantes traigan sus Chromebooks (computadoras) a la escuela cuando regresen. Para ayudar a otros estudiantes y al personal a mantenerse saludables, no permita que ningún estudiante positivo de Covid-19 regrese a la escuela hasta que haya cumplido con las pautas de CDC para regresar a lugares públicos. Además, si alguno de sus estudiantes experimenta síntomas de Covid, siga las pautas de CDC (pruebe dentro de las 48 horas y póngase en cuarentena durante 10 días si dan positivo). En última instancia, para mantenernos abiertos, todos debemos ser lo más cuidadosos y diligentes posibles siguiendo las pautas de CDC con respecto al distanciamiento social, el uso de máscaras y la desinfección de manos. Además, tenga en cuenta que hoy es el último día en que la escuela de Amargosa Valley proporcionará comidas hasta que comience el segundo semestre. En muchos sentidos, este semestre ha pasado volando; realmente disfrutamos trabajar con sus estudiantes y nos sentimos bien con los procesos de aprendizaje en nuestra escuela. Estoy seguro de que el personal se une a mí para desearles a toda una maravillosa temporada navideña. Sinceramente, Chuck Fannin, Director, Escuela Amargosa Valley

Amargosa Schools Going Back to Face to Face Instruction with all Students Parents, After many discussions with teachers, parents, and NCSD administrators, it has been decided that Amargosa Elementary and Middle Schools will go back to face to face instruction at the beginning of the Second Quarter for all of our students who want to learn in that manner. The vast majority of our students who started out the school year as Distance Only Learners have decided to come back to school as face to face learners. The small number of students who still want to continue as Distance Only Learners will be assigned to Distance Only Learning teachers in Pahrump and they will continue with their online only learning. So, next Monday, October 12th, we will extend our school day to 2:10 P.M. indefinitely. The bus routes will be adjusted accordingly and will be published on our School Website and School Facebook Page by 3:00 P.M. this Thursday, October 8th. Our students will still be expected to do some school work at home since they will be coming a little earlier than they would in a normal year. Students will be responsible for that work at home and will document it according to their teachers’ directions. Please ask your students when they come home each day what they are required to do for their at-home classwork. We believe that this new schedule will benefit our students tremendously. Teachers will be able to do more small-group reading and math activities. In addition, they will have more time to do more real world learning applications with their students, especially in the areas of Science and Social Studies. If you have any questions or concerns about this new schedule, please do not hesitate to contact me at or at 775-372-5324. Sincerely, Chuck Fannin Principal, Amargosa Valley Schools Las Escuelas de Amargosa Volverán a la Instrucción Cara a Cara con Todos los Estudiantes Padres, Después de muchas discusiones con maestros, padres y administradores del distrito, se decidió que las escuelas primarias e intermedias de Amargosa volverán a la instrucción cara a cara al comienzo del segundo trimestre para todos nuestros estudiantes que quieran aprender de esa manera. La gran mayoría de nuestros estudiantes que comenzaron el año escolar como aprendices a distancia han decidido regresar a la escuela como aprendices cara a cara. La pequeña cantidad de estudiantes que todavía quieren continuar como aprendices a distancia serán asignados a maestros de aprendizaje a distancia en Pahrump y continuarán con su aprendizaje solo en línea. Entonces, el próximo lunes 12 de octubre, extenderemos nuestro día escolar a las 2:10 p.m. indefinidamente. Las rutas de autobús se ajustarán en consecuencia y se publicarán en nuestro sitio web de la escuela y en la página de Facebook de la escuela antes de las 3:00 p.m. este jueves 8 de octubre. Aún se espera que nuestros estudiantes hagan algún trabajo escolar en casa ya que llegarán un poco antes de lo que lo harían en un año normal. Los estudiantes serán responsables de ese trabajo en casa y lo documentarán de acuerdo con las instrucciones de sus maestros. Por favor, pregunte a sus estudiantes cuando regresen a casa cada día qué deben hacer para el trabajo de clase en casa. Creemos que este nuevo horario beneficiará enormemente a nuestros estudiantes. Los maestros podrán realizar más actividades de lectura y matemáticas en grupos pequeños. Además, tendrán más tiempo para hacer más aplicaciones de aprendizaje del mundo real con sus estudiantes, especialmente en las áreas de Ciencias y Estudios Sociales. Si tiene alguna pregunta o inquietud sobre este nuevo horario, no dude en comunicarse conmigo al 775-372-5324. Sinceramente, Chuck Fannin Director, Escuelas de Amargosa

Pizza Party Reward for Growth and Exiting from WIDA program. This year we had 8 students exit from the WIDA process. Every January, English Language Learners (ELL) that have not shown proficiency in the English language are assessed to determine their level in reading, listening, speaking and writing. The data collected helps teachers to provide instruction to each of their ELL students. We provide encouragement and incentive for them to succeed. The students enjoyed stuffing themselves with Pizza. We handed out certificates and gave our hard workers a round of applause. A Great Big Thank you to Martell’s for delivering the purchased pizza and supplying each student with Reese’s peanut butter cup and drink.

Los datos recopilados ayudan a los maestros a brindar instrucción a cada uno de sus estudiantes ELL. Les brindamos aliento e incentivos para que tengan éxito. Los estudiantes disfrutaron complaciéndose de pizza. Repartimos certificados y aplaudimos a nuestros trabajadores.
