All Carson City School District schools will be closed today, due to the winter storm warning, expected high winds and pending weather-related conditions.

All employees and students should remain home. No student activities, afterschool programs or practices will occur, including remote instruction. No school services such as transportation, nutrition or student health will be provided.


Due to severe incoming winter weather in northern Nevada, Gov. Joe Lombardo has announced that state offices in Carson City, Douglas County, Lyon County, Storey County, and Washoe County will remain closed on Monday, February 27, 2023. Aside from essential public safety and corrections personnel, state offices in these counties will be closed today due to incoming winter storms.

Per the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) and the Department of Public Safety (DPS), incoming winter storms have already created regional transportation difficulties and potentially dangerous road conditions. In Washoe Valley, high winds have already required ongoing pilot car operations.

The Office of the Governor will continue to actively monitor weather conditions alongside NDOT and DPS. Furthermore, Governor Lombardo urges northern Nevadans to take caution on roadways and to follow all NDOT and DPS guidance.


Due to severe incoming weather and dangerous road conditions, all non-essential University of Nevada, Reno operations and in-person classes will be suspended, today, Monday, Feb. 27. This applies to all University facilities in Washoe County, Douglas County and Carson City.
