Clark County and the Cities of Boulder City, Henderson, Las Vegas, Mesquite and North Las Vegas have been working on a list of resources for working parents to prepare for the first day of school on August 24, 2020. 


The Nevada COVID -19 Task Force, led by Chairman Jim Murren and President Elaine Wynn, is working on rallying the resources of the private sector to help aid the State’s response, recovery and relief from COVID-19. This Task Force has set up Connecting Kids Nevada where parents can help this effort by filling out a survey to assess current distance learning needs. The Task Force has also set up a Family Support Center you can call at 1-888-616-2476 from Monday- Saturday, 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. if you do not have Internet connectivity or access to a device. The Family Support Center can connect qualified families to the Internet for free. See FAQ for more information in English and in Spanish.
