Tiny Clark County, Nevada, school remains closed after damage from major storm

Sept. 29, 2023
Officials say Lundy Elementary on Mount Charleston is likely to be closed for the rest of 2023-24.

An elementary school on Mount Charleston in Clark County, Nev., is not likely to reopen this school year after it sustained major damage in an August rainstorm.

The Las Vegas Review Journal reports that the students displaced from Lundy Elementary School will continue attending classes in Indian Springs.

Lundy Elementary was damaged as a result of a storm that dumped 8 inches of rain in Lee and Kyle canyons, leading to 3 feet of floodwaters.

Construction work is nearly done to stabilize the building, the Clark County District says.

Lundy Elementary’s projected enrollment for this school year was 14 students. A staff directory lists two teachers, as well as a counselor and a few support staff.

Classes were canceled for about a week following the storm. Students have been attending classes since Aug. 28 in Indian Springs, which is more than 45 miles away.

A message in late August to parents noted they’d receive information about transportation options.

Mount Charleston is an unincorporated town and census-designated place in Clark County, Nevada, United States. The population was 357 at the 2010 census.
