Nevada Union High closed again today!

Our local high school is closed again on Friday. Here are memos discussing the closure:

February 25, 2022

“Good Evening Miner Families,

“This is Kelly Rhoden, Principal of Nevada Union High School. Nevada Union High School will again be closed tomorrow, Friday, February 25, 2022, due to the ongoing teacher shortage. It is our top priority to get students back in the classroom to further their education as soon as possible. We will continue to work with the teachers union and the district administration to find a resolution to our current situation. 

“We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience and support as we work through these challenges. Have a good weekend and I look forward to seeing everyone on Monday, February 28, 2022.

“Thank you –

“Kelly Rhoden, Principal, Nevada Union High School”


“Good afternoon NU Teachers: 

“I am reaching out to again apologize for the confusion and stress over the last couple of days that has taken place due to the unprofessional conduct displayed at the board meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 22, 2022. I am still embarrassed and ashamed by the disrespect shown not only by the adults in attendance but also by the board’s message and lack of control over the meeting.  I want you to know that I understand why we have the number of teacher absences that we do. I also hope you know that the presence at that meeting was small in comparison to the voices of support for our teachers that I have heard from.

“In planning for tomorrow, I am reaching out to ask those that are planning to be absent again tomorrow to put the absence into AESOP by 6:00 pm tonight so that I can help students, families, and staff plan ahead.

“I appreciate all of you.

“Kelly Rhoden, Principal”
