RENO, Nev. (News 4 & Fox 11) — The Washoe County School District (WCSD) is asking for feedback on where to place a new elementary school—which is in the early planning stages— in the Cold Springs area.
The District is considering several prospective locations where the school might be built, and WCSD is asking for community input on the options.
The survey is open to all residents of Washoe County, and responses from residents of Cold Springs are especially welcome.
“This is an important decision,” said WCSD Chief Facilities Management Officer Adam Searcy. “With more than one possible location where the school could be built, we hope the community will help us decide where the best site for this school is.”
This school is projected to open in August 2021, and will be built in the same design as Nick Poulakidas Elementary school which is currently under construction in south Reno.
This new school in Cold Springs will relieve critical overcrowding at Nancy Gomes Elementary School.
It will also allow for 5th grades to return to the elementary schools in the area, which are currently housed at Cold Springs Middle School, and creates space needed for projected enrollment growth at the middle school level.
The survey is open through December 17. For further information and links to the survey in both English and Spanish, click HERE.
Paper copies of the survey will be available at Nancy Gomes Elementary School, Cold Springs Middle School, and several other community sites in the Cold Springs area.
