The Douglas County School District is pleased to announce the appointment of Yvonne Wagstaff as the newest member of its Board of Trustees.

Yvonne brings a wealth of experience from her personal and professional life, deeply rooted in educational and community involvement.

Yvonne’s story is one of constant movement and involvement. Raised mainly in Texas before settling in Idaho, where she met her husband, the couple has built a loving family over 25 years, raising six children and cherishing their grandchild. Their journey across the United States, from Idaho to Florida, then Southern Illinois, and back to the West, is a testament to their adaptability and commitment to family.

During her 18 years as a stay-at-home mom, Yvonne dedicated herself to volunteering in her children’s schools across the country. This involvement gave her a deep appreciation for teachers and the intricacies of educational planning. Joining DCSD six years ago as a substitute classified support staff, Yvonne worked across the district, forming connections and gaining insights into its operations. Her decision five years ago to take a permanent position at Pinon Hills Elementary School further solidified her bond with the educational community.

Her entry into the school board is a reflection of her dedication to educational excellence. Yvonne’s focus is on making decisions that positively impact families and students, emphasizing support for both students and teachers in a contemporary educational environment.

Yvonne Wagstaff shared her vision, stating, “My goal as a board member is to help bring our focus back on what matters most, our students and teachers. Trust is something that takes years to earn and can be lost in a moment, so restoring that trust with each family, helping them know that I understand the day-to-day struggle of protecting and raising children in today’s world, that’s important to me. It will not be easy but it will be worth it.”

As we approach the season of uncertain weather conditions, we wanted to make sure that people are familiar with our notification process.

Learn More

In the event of a 90 minute delay, school closure, or need for snow bus stops due to weather conditions, parents and guardians will receive a phone call, text, and email. These messages are generated through Infinite Campus so it is important that contact information is updated and current. Notifications will also be shared to the District website, each school's website, local news stations, and social media accounts by 6:00am.

If no announcement is made by 6:00am, you can assume that school is on for that day.

We ask that during inclement weather, you check your messages and your student's school's website before you send them out to the bus stops in the morning.

Thank you!

Happy Nevada Day!
