Schools and local government services

From Nevada County Superintendent of Schools: 

Local agencies have been working hard to restore power, to clear roads of snow, and to remove downed trees. 

School site personnel across the county are working to clear parking areas and ingress/egress to the schools; while Durham School Services works to clear buses from their snow impacted bus barn.  Many of our school staff remain snowed in, without power and unable to safely report to schools. 

Unfortunately, there is still much work to be done to safely open some of our school sites. As well, projected freezing temperatures are forecast for the early morning hours tomorrow, making roads icy and unsafe.  As always, our first priority is for the safety of students, staff and the community. 

Tomorrow, Thursday, March 2, 2023, all Western Nevada Schools remain closed.

From Nevada County Superintendent of Schools: Though weather conditions may improve tomorrow: All Western Nevada County Schools including the Nevada County Sierra College campus, will be closed tomorrow, Wednesday, March 1, 2023. 

As our local agencies work to restore power and internet services, and efforts are made to clear roads and downed trees, the determination for school openings will be decided on a day by day basis with the safety of all students, staff and community members as the highest priority. Please check on your neighbors that may have need of assistance. We are a strong community and will work together through this damaging weather event. We are grateful for our amazing and hard working First Responders, Public Works, Office of Emergency Services, and  other agencies supporting our community.
