A Message from the Principal of

Swainston Middle School,

Lori Desiderato

Hello Swainston Families,


We sincerely hope that you are all doing well and are having a fun and safe summer!  As you may know, CCSD will start the school year with fully online distance learning.  This decision was made and approved by the Board of School Trustees after continuously monitoring the health data and listening to our community, parents, and staff members.


The first day of the 2020-2021 school year will begin online on Monday, August 24th.  Our teachers return to work on Wednesday, August 5th and will be receiving professional development specific to online instruction. During this time, teachers will be planning together to best meet our students’ needs for virtual learning. Our goal at Swainston Middle   

School is to replicate the in-person class experience as much as possible.  Students will receive whole group and small group instruction via video lessons and class meetings, as well as completely aligned assignments and assessments. The virtual instruction will take place on Google Meets and within the Canvas platform. Information on Google Meets will soon be available here on our school website .  Informational videos on Canvas are available on the Parents Page under the News and Info menu link.

All students will need a device to access the online learning platforms for virtual learning. If your child is in need of a device, please click on the following link to complete the survey (Swainston Technology Survey). If you do not have internet or need technical assistance, you may call (702) 799-4860 ext. 4500.  In order for your child to be eligible to receive a Chromebook, your child must be enrolled at Swainston Middle School for the 2020-2021 school year. Parents/guardians must have completed the yearly online registration.


Additionally, the CCSD Board of Trustees voted to have all middle school students' instruction on a 4 x 4, semester-long class schedule.  That means students will have 4 classes each semester, giving them the opportunity to earn 8 credits this school year. While we are excited about the possibilities this presents to our students, this means that we are in the process of creating a completely new Master Schedule for our school.  We understand you and your child are eager to know what classes and which teachers they will have, but we ask you to please be patient as we work to create a new schedule to meet the needs of all of our students. Once your child’s schedule is complete, you will receive their schedule via email. A Parent Link will be sent out in the near future with more information in regards to student schedules.


Parents and guardians, if you have not yet registered your child for the upcoming school year, please do so immediately by visiting campusportal.ccsd.net to ensure your child is enrolled at Swainston Middle School. Your child will not receive a schedule or a Chromebook until their enrollment is completed. Please visit https://www.swainstonms.org/ for the most up-to-date, current information on the 2020-2021 school year.


This new school year will be a very different school year that will bring new experiences for all. We will use this moment to work together to provide solutions and more effective ways to connect as a community for the well-being of our students.  We are very confident that this will be an exceptional year for student growth and achievement!


Hello Parents, allow me to introduce myself.  My name is Mr. Thomas Lemmon and I'm the Site Base Technician for Swainston Middle School.  If your child is experiencing any type of technical issues with their Chromebook, please contact me at 702-799-4860 or email me at lemmotl@nv.ccsd.net.

Technological information and updates will be available on the Technology Page under the News and Info tag in the menu above or by clicking the button link here.

All former Swainston students must return their device to Swainston in order to receive a device from their new school.  All new students to Swainston with devices from other schools must return those devices before receiving one from Swainston.
