Athletics; Homecoming Week Back up and Going at Ihs

By Kayla Anderson

Incline High School had a similar bumpy start to the 2021/22 school year but is now on track to go full speed ahead. Its students had their first day back to school this past August 27, but it ended up being a bit of a lackluster start.

“It was on a Friday, the weirdest day to go back,” says IHS Principal Tierney Cahill. “We had a high energy motivator coming into to pump up the kids and we prepared for this wild, positive day and then it just didn’t happen,” she explains. The following week, IHS resumed school for two days but even then, it was kind of torturous.

The 2021/22 school year in Incline Village was off to a bit of a strained start but not even Covid-19 nor the Caldor Fire could keep kids from going back to school in person. Within the Washoe County School District, the first day back to school for in-person/in classroom education was supposed to be August 23, however, most schools didn’t really start getting into the groove of things until after Labor Day. Here are some fun, new, and exciting programs and events local schools have lined up for this fall:

With rapid succession Incline Village, Crystal Bay, and Kings Beach Communities accelerated to hyper speed to feed, clothe, shelter and otherwise assist those displaced by the wildfire raging within the basin.
