NevadaFIT and COVID-19 update

NevadaFIT 2020, scheduled for August 16-21, has been cancelled. 

Please visit the NevadaFIT website for more information.

Retention rates compared to non-participants in the 2017-2018 cohort were 6.2% higher.

Parent Information:

This is an exciting, yet emotional time for students and families. It is important to plan your goodbyes before the Check-in and Kick-Off Ceremony. We recommend planning dinner the night before or breakfast on the day of Check-in. Please keep in mind this is for academic credit; therefore at check-in, class begins. After this time, your students will be busy roughly until 10 p.m. every night with activities throughout the day. Goodbyes are important; please plan accordingly so that you can enjoy your time together. For additional information, please refer to the NevadaFIT Parent Information page.
