North Lyon County USD 251 has received confirmation this evening that a second staff member at Northern Heights High School has tested positive for COVID-19. The school district is working closely with the Lyon County Health Department on contact tracing. Any close contacts will be notified by the health department and the school if they need to quarantine. If you are not contacted as a confirmed close contact, you should continue to attend school.

Thank you for your patience during this pandemic that has affected everyone. We truly appreciate our ongoing partnership with our staff, parents, and local health department and remain committed to the health and safety of our students and staff. If you have questions, please contact your school administrator or the Lyon County Health Department.
