Good Morning Elko Parents,
Today we conducted our monthly fire drill. We are proud to share how well your student followed expectations during the drill. Parents please share with your student job well done! Students were quiet before, during and after the fire drill. Our main goal is to ensure the safety of our students and staff and we will continue to practice our monthly drills. Parents encourage your student to continue follow expectations as we practice our safety procedures.
Have a great day!
Dominique Friend, Principal
It is important that our Elko Eagles recognize the rights, responsibilities and opportunities of living, learning and working in an interconnected digital world. They should always act and model safe, legal and ethical behavior. During Advisory students will learn about an aspect of Digital Citizenship. The resources below from Common Sense Media will help families continue these conversations at home. By working together, we can ensure our Elko Eagles are upstanding digital citizens.
Digital Citizenship Topics & Resources for Families
