Spring Volleyball


Attention Spring Volleyball Participants. Our first clinic is THIS Friday March 22nd for our 4th through 6th grade players only. Nevada Union’s West Gym from 4:30-6:00pm

Tyler Nielson and Justin Gardner


Our hearts are broken along with our entire community with the loss of two bright and beautiful young men. I want to repost Kelly Rhoden’s letter to NU students. The Ali Gym doors are open to anyone who needs support and comfort during this difficult time.

Good Morning Miner Families, this is Principal Kelly Rhoden.

It is with great sadness to report the loss of 2 of our students over this Spring Break. Tyler Nielson and Justin Gardner’s lives were both lost in a car accident earlier Sunday morning when a drunk driver crossed the center line and hit them head-on as they traveled with family to Pismo Beach. Tyler’s life was lost at the scene and Justin passed later at the hospital. Dawson Fay was in the same vehicle and has a broken hip but is ok.

With the help of our staff at NU and Nevada County Superintendent of Schools, we have put together a support group of counselors to help us deal with these losses for the return to school on Monday, April 2, 2018. In the meantime, I know we have groups of students that gathered at the NUHS last night and will again today. We do have staff on hand to open the Ali gym and our Crisis Team made up of school counselors and community counselors will be on site for our students, staff, and school community that need help in processing this tragedy.

This is a huge loss to our Miner family. Let us all keep the families in our hearts and thoughts as they deal with this horrific loss. My deepest sympathy goes out to all of you.

Kelly Rhoden, Principal
