Due to the Declaration of Local Emergency of the Nye County Board of Commissioners and the recommendation to shelter in place, the Nye County School District will be closing schools tomorrow, Monday, August 21, 2023. This decision was made out of extreme caution for the safety of all Nye County School District students and staff. We are in communication with the Director of Emergency Management for Nye County, Chief Scott Lewis. We will continue to send updates if the situation changes through all school websites and Facebook: https://www.nye.k12.nv.us/live-feed. Currently our plan is for schools to return to normal schedules on Tuesday, August 22, 2023. If this changes, we will send another emergency update through all channels: phone message, email, text, all websites, and Facebook pages. Please stay home and be safe. Documents regarding the weather and the emergency declaration can be seen here: https://www.nye.k12.nv.us/documents/announcements-%26-press-releases/2023-2024-announcements%2C-prs-%26-memos/2023-08-21---county-emergency-declaration/506111.
Thank you to the Daughters of the American Revolution, the Pahrump Valley United Methodist Church, and the Desert Greens for fulfilling our teachers' wish lists! They've also donated the funds for Judy's Reading Jungle, our take-a-book-leave a-book reading tent, as well as food, clothing, and items for the home economics room we are creating. I cannot thank them enough for choosing to help make the experience of Amargosa's students that much better!
It's Back-to-School Season!
Good morning! If you'd like to get food for your children, ages 2-18, you can come to the school cafeteria Monday-Thursday, from 11:30am-12pm. Please note, that due to work that is happening on our parking lot, you will have to enter through the side gate which faces the community center. Please do not park in a place that will block our school bus as we have summer school in session. Thank you! --- ¡Buen día! Si desea obtener comida para sus hijos, de 2 a 18 años, puede venir a la cafetería de la escuela de lunes a jueves, de 11:30 am a 12:00 pm. Tenga en cuenta que, debido al trabajo que se está realizando en nuestro estacionamiento, tendrá que ingresar por la puerta lateral que da al centro comunitario. No se estacione en un lugar que bloquee nuestro autobús escolar ya que tenemos clases de verano en sesión. ¡Gracias!
NCSO and NCSD are aware of the social media posts threatening violence at schools tomorrow, May 10, 2023. A thorough investigation was conducted and it was determined that the threatening post originated outside of Nevada and was directed at a school in Clark County. NCSO has determined there is no credible threat to any NCSD schools. Out of an abundance of caution, patrols will be increased so there is a more visible NCSO presence around our schools.
The Nye County Sheriffs Office received information regarding an unsubstantiated threat across multiple Nevada school districts today. Due to this, all schools are implementing "Stay-Put" procedures, limiting movement around and within campus. If students are required to be outside for transitioning between classes, they will be accompanied by an employee. Sheriff McGill also has deputies driving by, visiting, and monitoring campuses for safety through dismissal time. Schools will follow normal dismissal times and procedures.

Everyone, Just a reminder that the Pahrump District Office will be closed for the board meeting because all of the board members will be in Amargosa. We are still live streaming the meeting here: https://livestream.nyeschools.org/ViewStream.html We will post updates through the district and Amargosa websites when we pause the stream for breaks and closed session.
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 (www.nye.k12.nv.us) by clicking on Menu > Parents/Guardians > Registration and Enrollment. Thank You! Miss George, Kindergarten Teacher
