Message from Superintendent Young


Governor Sisolak has signed an order extending the Learn at Home model through the rest of the school year.  The last day of instruction is now May 28.  We hope school will resume IN-CLASS Aug 31,2020.


I know the uncertainty can be stressful. I want to again thank each of you for the really wonderful work you're doing. You're living a world class learning environment by coming together for the greater good. It's tough. But we can continue to support our community and each other as we do the best we can given the circumstances.

We love, value, and teach by nurturing the whole child.



All children will know they are valued and loved, empowering them to become exceptional learners and successful leaders.  They will show consistent improvement on measured assessments ensuring they are grade level prepared to enter middle school by the end of 5th grade.



When children know they are loved and valued, they will learn to love themselves and the world around them. This will give them the intrinsic desire to be the best they can. It will enrich their academic, social and personal lives, creating successful individuals and leaders.

The Leader in Me
