Summer Code Camp for Middle School Girls


Grades: 6-7-8


Program Description The 2022 UNLV Summer Code Camp is a half-day summer program held for one week for girls who are interested in learning how to code. This program is sponsored by the College of Sciences and Center for Mathematics, Science and Engineering Education at UNLV, with funding from the National Science Foundation. The program is intended to introduce coding to girls at an early age, expose them to diverse applications of software in Biology and Science, and support and increase the number of women in computer science related fields. We are planning on building a visual animated game that will introduce girls to the concept of evolution, while exposing them to hands-on software design.

Instructor: Dr. Mira Han

Time and Dates: The program will run between 9:00 am and 12:00 noon on June 27, June 28, June 29, June 30, and July 1, 2022.

Registration: https://mirahan.faculty.unlv.edu/summercode/registration/

We will accept 20 students to this program. Registration will be based on a first-come, first-served basis. Students must be attending grades 6, 7, or 8 in the 2022-2023 School Year.

Travel information

We understand that families may be planning to travel over Spring Break to see family and friends after a year of stay-at-home orders and other restrictions. Ahead of the break, we want to ensure all families are aware of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance for domestic and international travel.

CCSD will follow the below expectations and recommendations from the CDC and U.S. Government.

Domestic Travel (inside the U.S.)

Upon return from travel there are no quarantine restrictions provided if the person or persons is/are asymptomatic (no fever, cough, loss of taste, etc.).

International travel

  • As recommended by the CDC, persons returning from International travel will need to submit to COVID-19 testing within 3 to 5 days after travel AND stay home AND self-quarantine for 7 days after travel. Even if an individual tests negative, the person needs to remain at home and self-quarantine for the full 7 days.

  • If a person chooses not to be tested, that individual needs to remain at home AND self-quarantine for 10 days after travel.

  • If a returning traveler has a positive test result, then that person needs to isolate and follow the procedures outlined by the CDC, Southern Nevada Health District, and the CCSD Implementation Guide to ensure a safe return to school and/or workplace.

CCSD can not restrict personal travel but we want to provide information to families on the impacts of these plans. You can find CDC travel recommendations by clicking here.

March 1 - Food Distribution Sites

CCSD Food Distribution Sites have been modified to incorporate hybrid instruction. As of March 1, there are no longer Food Distribution Sites at elementary school parking lots. However, students who are in face-to-face instruction on their assigned days will have the option to receive meals for breakfast and lunch at their school location during the school day.

Food Distribution Sites will be available for all children ages 2-18 years of age Monday through Friday (except holidays) at middle school parking lots from 7 a.m. - 11 a.m. and at high school parking lots from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. Meals will continue to be served at Food Distribution Sites on Wednesday even as all students will be in distance education on Wednesday of each week during hybrid instruction.

Families can visit https://ccsd.nutrislice.com/ for locations and times of parking lot meal distribution. Reconnect.ccsd.net has a handy schedule for families.

Socio-Emotional Resources

CCSD would like to remind our families that there are resources available to support you and your loved ones because our number one priority is the safety of our students and families.

Students and families are also reminded that SafeVoice is available 24 hours a day at www.safevoicenv.org or at 833-216-7233.

Additionally, CCSD and Nevada leaders have partnered to release a public service announcement video for all Nevada students regarding mental and emotional wellness.

“The stress of the pandemic has had an impact on the lives of everyone in Clark County for different reasons, especially our kids,” said CCSD Superintendent Dr. Jesus F. Jara. “We must work together for our students and ensure that their emotional and mental wellbeing are supported and healthy. Thank you to all of the elected officials who participated in this PSA, you’re making a difference for our kids.”

Please consider sharing with your child.

Mask Up

The Clark County School District encourages everyone to follow Governor Sisolak’s COVID-19 restrictions. Stopping the spread of COVID-19 is the quickest and safest way to get our students back in the classroom.

Please review this video from CCSD Health Services that shows proper mask wearing procedures. Please remember to wash your hands frequently and follow other CDC recommendations to protect yourself and others.
