Mojave, Arbor View and Centennial top list of schools with most COVID-19 cases

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- Students are off Friday and Tuesday as the "Stop the Spread" pause gives schools a brief break from masks and protocols that have become part of everyday life.

Going into the 5-day weekend created by rescheduling by the school district, here's an update on case counts at schools across the valley.

Remember that the Clark County School District (CCSD) only reports the cases it knows about -- reporting is completely voluntary on the part of students and their families, teachers and other employees. Testing for private schools is not available.

Another way to look at data on school-age kids (5-17) is available from the Southern Nevada Health District (SNHD). A look at numbers from Jan. 1-13 shows that cases in that age group increased by 13% since the start of the year -- from 42,775 on Jan. 1 to 48,694 on Jan. 13... Read More

Did CCSD change the start and end time for your child's school? Find out if it's included

(KLAS) -- The Clark County School District is adjusting start and end times for more than half of the district's 374 schools. According to the district, the changes will begin in the fall for the 2022-2023 school year. The changes for most schools are less than 30 minutes, impacting 65 bus routes.

The school district points out that these times might still be adjusted before the new school year. “Getting students to school on time is vital to student achievement,” CCSD Superintendent Dr. Jesus F.

$250M earmarked for desalination projects as West battles drought

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- Desalination projects are going to get a look as the federal government looks for water sources during the drought in the West.

With $250 million in funding available, desalination projects are a big part of a three-pronged effort announced in a Department of the Interior news release on Friday to help Western communities create or expand clean, new water sources.

Water reclamation and reuse projects will be the focus of most of the funding through the $1 billion Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. The funding still needs approval as part of fiscal year 2022 appropriations.

"Water reuse and desalination are important tools to building resiliency throughout the West, and these funding opportunities support water providers in developing new and clean sources of water to improve their water supply reliability for their communities," said Bureau of Reclamation Commissioner Camille Calimlim Touton...
