The Clark County School District saw an improvement in employee and student attendance after classes resumed Wednesday, January 19th. 

That’s following what the district dubbed as its five-day pause amid the continued spread of COVID-19. 

The nation’s fifth-largest school district cancelled two days of classes after its traditional three-day, Martin Luther King Junior holiday weekend. 

District administrators hoped this pause would tamp down the spread of the virus among CCSD students, faculty, staff, and families. 

The school district noted in a news release that its nurses used that period to process COVID-19 cases among staff and students.
