Chromebook Updates

Greetings, LVHS Wildcats!

Some of the Chromebooks are out of date from being shut down for so long because of school closure. Students/parents can manually update the Chromebook manually to be able to run Canvas. Please use the link below and follow instructions, specifically the "Check for updates yourself" section on how to update your Chromebook.

¡Saludos, LVHS Wildcats!

Chromebook están desactualizadas por haber estado cerradas durante tanto tiempo debido al cierre de la escuela. Los estudiantes / padres pueden actualizar manualmente el Chromebook para poder ejecutar Canvas. Utilice el vínculo a continuación y siga las instrucciones, específicamente la sección "Buscar actualizaciones usted mismo" sobre cómo actualizar su Chromebook.

Thank you.

Go Guardian

Since CCSD initiated distance learning, all Chromebooks will have a management and Internet filtering tool that your child's school uses for devices issued to students. The Internet filter will also apply to any student whenever a student logs on to a Chrome Internet browser with his or her school-issued account. GoGuardian will NOT filter content or impact the browsing experience of NON-CCSD accounts (private Gmail accounts, etc.).

Through the use of this tool, we hope to encourage safer practices and responsible browsing habits. Any attempt to access inappropriate content using a school-issued Gmail account will generate an immediate email, “red flag,” that is sent directly to the school's administrative team. The devices may be disabled remotely if deemed necessary by school administration.

For help and more information, visit Specific GoGuardian filtering questions/issues should be sent to the SBT or those with the Admin rights in GoGuardian, and they can contact GoGuardian Support as needed.

School Immunization Requirements

Please ensure to schedule appointments with your child’s health care provider for immunization visits as soon as possible. Per Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS) 392.435 and 394.192, if a parent or legal guardian fails to provide their child’s immunization documentation, the student must be excluded from school and may not be admitted until the requirements for immunization have been met. NSIP and Nevada schools must work together as an immunization community to ensure children are protected against vaccine-preventable diseases and ready to return to school.

We appreciate all you are doing to keep all students and Nevada safe during these uncertain times. Thank you for your continued partnership.

Asegúrese de programar citas con el proveedor de atención médica de su hijo para las visitas de vacunación lo antes posible. Según los Estatutos Revisados ​​de Nevada (NRS) 392.435 y 394.192, si un padre o tutor legal no proporciona la documentación de vacunación de su hijo, el estudiante debe ser excluido de la escuela y no puede ser admitido hasta que se hayan cumplido los requisitos de vacunación. Las escuelas de NSIP y Nevada deben trabajar juntas como una comunidad de inmunización para garantizar que los niños estén protegidos contra enfermedades prevenibles por vacunas y listos para regresar a la escuela.

Apreciamos todo lo que está haciendo para mantener seguros a todos los estudiantes y Nevada durante estos tiempos inciertos. Gracias por su continua colaboración.
