Monthly Fire Drill, 4/19

April 19, 2018

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
