Cozine Climber Updates - February 17

A Note From Cozine:

Hi Climbers!


We know you are anxious to learn more about the Hybrid model. We are excited to announce we have a Family Informational video below for you. We hope this answers many of your questions as we transition to having students in the building again.


Our cohort assignments are ready to send out! You'll receive an email this week with your child's assigned cohort and teacher. If you don't receive your email please let us know! This means we don't have your updated information and we want to make sure you aren't left out.


In Kindness,
Ms. Jodi Notch and Ms. Lisa Dalton

Lifeline Learning Program

The Covid-19 pandemic has been a struggle for everyone this past year. As you may have heard in the news, since March 2020, 22 students in Clark County have died by suicide. CCSD recognizes the dire need to address the mental health crisis present in our communities and our youth today.


Through the Lifeline Program, Licensed School Mental Health Professionals will gain insight into the social and emotional well being of our students. This will allow our school staff to better serve our students and provide preventative services.


Participation in the survey is voluntary, and is available for students in grades 3-5. If you have any questions or concerns, or would like community resources for your family please contact our School Counselor Ms. Holroyd at (702) 799-0690 ext. 4301. We appreciate your support as we embark on this journey of addressing the social and emotional needs of our students.
