2021-2022 PCSD Safe Return and Continuity of Service Plan

On July 14, 2021 PCSD Submitted our plan for the 2021-2022 School Year to NDE and is designed to meet the compliance requirements with the Federally Required Plan for Safe Return to in-person instruction and continuity of services.  The whole plan can be viewed here.  Below is a brief outline of our current plan.


All school buildings and grounds will be open to the public for the start of the 2021-2022 school year. As long as no state or national mandate prohibits us, Pershing County School District will re-open schools, offices, and grounds for instructional, administrative, and extracurricular activities under the following conditions:


  1. The school year will proceed according to the approved 2021-2022 School Year Calendar.

  2. School will be in session four (4) days per week for in-person, on campus learning.

  3. Full-time Remote Learning will be available by application through the students school.

  4. Students experiencing short-term absences (usually less than two (2) weeks in duration will have access to remote learning through their school and teacher. The District will provide all enrolled students with Chromebooks or some other 1-1 device.

  5. The Wearing of facemasks is not required for the 2021-2022 School Year. The following situations should be considered:

    • Pershing County School District highly encourages the use of facemasks for unvaccinated persons over the age of 2 years of age. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/schools-childcare/k-12-guidance.html The District has a supply of available facemasks to staff, students, and volunteers who desire to wear a facemask in District buildings and vehicles.

    • If a localized outbreak of COVID-19 or a variant of COVID-19 occurs, the temporary use of facemasks may be employed as part of a multi-layered effort to end the outbreak. 

    • COVID-19 vaccinations are available at no cost to all staff, volunteers, and age-appropriate students. A COVID-19 vaccination is not required to enroll in, attend school, or to be employed by the District.

    • Staff, volunteers, students, and families may voluntarily wear facemasks in any district building or vehicle. 

  6. Guidance and recommendations from the National Center of Disease Control (CDC) and local health authorities encourage the vaccination of age-appropriate persons against the COVID-19 virus and its variants. 

  7. Good hygiene and continued sanitation practices instituted in the previous school year including awareness of social distancing practices will be encouraged.
