Clark County kids returning to school, weather still an issue

CREATED Aug. 26, 2013

UPDATE: A spokesperson with CCSD said parents driving their kids to Arbor View High School should be aware of excessive road debris on Grand Teton Drive. Las Vegas police said parents should use northbound Buffalo to reach Arbor View.

Also, students traveling to Saville Middle School can only travel westbound from Jones on Grand Teton.

In addition, if parents are trying to reach their children's schools websites and are experiencing a problem, call the school directly. Some CenturyLink customers have reported issues to the school district.

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- It is the first day back to school for thousands of students in Clark County Monday morning.

More than 300,000 kids will be attending their first day of the 2013-2014 school year.

A lot of parents are wondering if leftover water from Sunday's storms is going to complicate things for students trying to get to school.

So far, the Clark County School District said everything will proceed as planned.

They said if they have to change any bus routes, they will tackle those problems as they come up.

If routes are changed or delays are expected, CCSD will notify parents through ParentLink.

This is expected to be mostly an issue in the northwest part of the Valley.

Residents there are still dealing with flooded streets Monday morning.

Most of the floodwater can be found in the northwest part of the Valley. Roads that are impacted include Farm Road, Grand Teton Drive, Fort Apache Road, North Tenaya Road and North Jones Boulevard.

It's not just the water that is causing a problems for drivers. There is also a thick layers of mud underneath the water.

Police also want to remind the public that they will be out in force Monday to make sure that drivers are also obeying speed limits in school zones and watching for kids crossing the streets.

In addition, drivers should also avoid the area of U.S. 95 and Horse. As of early Monday morning, it was closed in both directions.

State Route 157/Kyle Canyon Road is closed indefinitely after the road was damaged by runoff from the mountains.

According to meteorologist Mike Tsolinas, showers will gradually be spreading from east to west across the Valley Monday morning. Henderson and Boulder City are expected to see some wet weather Monday morning and then the rain will move across the rest of the Valley.
