Mission Statement

Carson High School challenges students to achieve their greatest potential for future success.


Changes to Drop-Off and Pick-Up Procedures

During a recent safety visit by the Carson City Fire Marshall it was brought to our attention that the curb in front of the high school must be painted red as fire codes require this area to be kept clear for emergency vehicles. Over the holiday break, the curb will be painted red. Please do not park on the right hand side of the curb because this is the fire lane. After the holiday break, when you come to school for morning drop off or afternoon pick up, please be mindful of this change. The fire lane will be blocked with safety cones and district safety officers will be outside to monitor the situation. Drivers may park along the YELLOW curb only. Do not stop at the first spot if there is room to pull all the way forward along the yellow curb so that others may park and to avoid congestion at the driveway entrance. There will be two lanes of travel on the inside, between the yellow curb and the fire lane. Do not double park across the lane of travel. Sheriff's Deputites will be ticketing for violations of parking rules. Your patience and courtesy towards other drivers and our safety officers is appreciated.
