Summer is here and it offers plenty of time for our students to keep learning and explore what Las Vegas and the outdoors have to offer.
Below are some resources for parents and students to help them make the most out of their summer.
Families new to CCSD may begin their registration process online via register.ccsd.net. Parents should note that the 2018-19 school year will begin on Aug. 13, 2018. Parents or guardians who already have an Infinite Campus account will see an announcement through the Parent Portal and a link connecting them to the 2018-19 registration page.

CCSD no longer has year-round schools. All schools are on a nine-month calendar. However, the ZOOM School Summer Academy provides 15 additional days at the end of the school year to students who were registered at a nine-month ZOOM School. The curriculum for these days is designed by expert teachers within CCSD, and is centered on themes that make ZOOM Summer Academy (or, at the secondary level, Zoom University) an exciting, educational and memorable experience for the students.
The following ZOOM Schools will hold summer school classes:
ZOOM Summer Academy
- Ollie Detwiler Elementary School
- Ann Lynch Elementary School
- William K. Moore Elementary School

ZOOM University at Global Community High School is credit bearing, thus setting students up for success in the coming year and helping them to get on track or stay on track for graduation.
Summer Food Service Programs
Each year, the U.S. Department of Agriculture partners with local organizations like the Clark County School District to provide free meals to students when school is out for the summer. Any student under the age of 18 may eat at hosted sites at no cost to the family. Here is a list of sites that will be providing lunches during the summer. If there are questions about specific sites, please call the number of the site.

Those caught will face fines of up to $1,000 (and six months in jail) and disposal fees may apply. Fireworks were responsible for an estimated 11,100 injuries treated in U.S. hospitals in 2016, the most recent year statistics were available.
