WASHOE COUNTY, NV – Washoe County wants you to take your child to work today. While Take Your Child to Work Day is usually on the fourth Thursday of April, this year Washoe County scheduled it for Tuesday to go along with the school district’s spring break.
Research has shown that children who spend time with their parents at their jobs learn valuable work habits and set higher goals for themselves.
There was a special event for county employees as firefighters from the Truckee Meadows Fire Protection District and the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office K-9 unit on hand to welcome the children Tuesday morning.
