ECSD OFFICIAL STATEMENT: Tonight’s board meeting cancelled in response to threats of violence

ELKO, NEV 20, October 2021— In response to recent threats of violence and concerns for public safety, ECSD announces tonight’s board meeting is cancelled.
The meeting is now rescheduled to take place on Tuesday, Oct. 26 at 5:30 p.m.

“The acts of disorderly conduct at previous board meetings and threats to our board are coinciding with an already difficult time faced by our community. We are in need of filling vacant school board seats, yet the actions by individuals in our very own communities are making the process very difficult. This directly affects our day to day management and the oversight of our children, schools, and communities,” stated Interim Superintendent Jeff Zander.

Those who wish to view the public meeting may do so by watching on the District’s YouTube Channel. ECSD encourages those interested in taking part in public comment to do so by submitting their comments by email to Teresa Dastrup at [email protected].

Today begins National School Bus Safety Week across the nation! This week we will be bringing you important school bus safety tips to share within your community to promote a safe ride for students to and from school.

SCHOOL BUS SAFETY TIP: Don't block the crosswalk when stopped at a red light or waiting to make a turn, forcing pedestrians to go around you; this could put them in the path of moving traffic.

Leave early, slow down, arrive safely. Repost these school bus safety tips in your community. #schoolbussafety #yellowschoolbus #schoolbus

Superintendent’s Message: Tik Tok Challenge
Dear ECSD families,

We know that Tik Tok is a popular app with our students. When used safely and responsibly, it can be a fun, creative outlet for tweens and teens. However, like many social media apps, Tik Tok is also a source of viral" challenges," in which users share videos of themselves performing pranks or stunts. The latest Tik Tok challenge involves students sharing videos of damage done to school property.

While this has been reported on as a national trend, I am sorry to say that it has reached Elko County School District. Student vandalism of school bathrooms has occurred in our middle and high schools. Needless to say, vandalism of school property will not be tolerated and is punishable by law.

To date, all incidents have been investigated and those involved have been disciplined, including detentions, restorative measures, and paying for repairs and/or replacement.
Now we are asking for your help. Please talk to your child(ren) and let them know that this is not a harmless prank, but destruction of school property that has very serious consequences.

I have included a link below from the Reno Gazette Journal to provide additional information about Tik Tok specifically, and viral internet challenges in general.
Please direct any further questions or concerns to your school administrator or counselor. Elko County School Resource Officers

As always, we appreciate your support.
Take care,
Interim Superintendent Jeff Zander

OFFICIAL ECSD STATEMENT

ELKO, NEV 9, September 2021— Three additional schools have been identified to be experiencing outbreaks in Elko County schools.

As of Thursday afternoon, Adobe Middle School, Liberty Peak Elementary School and Spring Creek Middle School have reported to have an excess of ten positive cases of COVID-19 within their schools.

This announcement comes only a day after Elko High School, Flag View Intermediate School and Spring Creek High School were also identified as having a school-wide outbreak.

As a result, students in attendance of the additional schools will also be required to wear a face covering when indoors per Nevada Declaration of Emergency Directive 048.

“I understand the concerns parents and students have with masks, but the practice of wearing one in our schools is one more step we can take to alleviating positive cases and close contacts within our schools,” said Interim Superintendent Jeff Zander.

The District reminds the community that keeping schools open to in-person learning remains its top-priority.

“We all want the same thing: to keep kids in school, keep them safe and to ensure that each and every one of them has access to an education in which they feel safe. I hope parents, the community and our stakeholders understand that is our responsibility and priority.”

This requirement will be in place for a minimum of 28-day calendar days, which is two (2) 14-day infectious cycles. The outbreak designation may be closed, even if there are new cases during the 28-day period. Local health authorities will continually monitor new positive cases within Elko County School District to determine if a new positive case is school or outside related.

In addition to universal mask wearing, DPBH request that all schools, regardless of outbreak designation or not, follow mitigation measures highlighted in Directive 048 Full Guidance: 2021-22 COVID-19 Guidelines for Prevention and Outbreak Control in School Settings

09/08/2021

OFFICIAL STATEMENT FROM ECSD

September 8, 2021- Based on the volume of positive COVID-19 cases reported at Elko High School, Flag View Intermediate School and Spring Creek High School and results of disease investigation efforts, the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Division of Public and Behavioral Health (DPBH) has deemed Elko High School, Flag View Intermediate School and Spring Creek High School to be experiencing an outbreak.

Effective Thursday, September 9, 2021, all students at EHS, Flag View, and SCHS, regardless of vaccination status, will be required to wear face coverings when indoors and when utilizing ECSD transportation. The only exceptions are those students who can produce documentation from a qualified Nevada-licensed medical professional that they are exempt in accordance with subsection 3 of section 7 of Directive 24 or when actively eating and drinking. To the best of our ability, at least 3 feet of social distancing will also be implemented in the school.

These mitigation measures are provided in Nevada Declaration of Emergency Directive 048: if a school-wide outbreak of COVID-19 is identified by local health officials in any school, a universal face covering policy shall be implemented immediately for ALL students in the school building where the outbreak occurred until the local health authority determines that the outbreak is closed.

This requirement will be in place for a minimum of 28-day calendar days, which is two (2) 14-day infectious cycles. The outbreak designation may be closed, even if there are new cases during the 28-day period. Local health authorities will continually monitor new cases within Elko County School District to determine if a new case is school or outside related.
In closing, keeping ECSD schools open to in-person learning remains the top-priority of Elko County School District, and we hope the community, who shares this goal, understands that each of us play a role in keeping ECSD schools accessible to our students as we implement mandated mitigation efforts.
