Kick COVID in the Caboose Week

This week of 3-30-20 let's do some FUN dress up days (post your pictures on the DEN Facebook OR text to Ms. Briggs 293-1635 and she will post them).  We will honor the home quarentine, practice social distancing, yet enjoy each other's company through social media.

Monday - Superhero Day - Dress as the heros keeping us safe and risking thier own health for ours:  1st responders, grocery store owners, gas station attendants, health workers, etc.

Tuesday - Honor the Elderly - dress like your grandparents, those most suspectable to the virus and its harmful effects

Wednesday - March Madness - Dress in your favorite sports team gear (ANY SPORTS) since we can't watch them and are missing some FUN entertaintment during this seclusion event

Thursday - PJ DAY - Since MOST OF US are enjoy home life in our PJs, get a picture in your favortie PJs, your blankie, and stuffed friends.  



Begins March 30, 7:00-7:30 pm

Ms. Briggs will begin a Bedtime Bookclub for those interested with a Facebook LIVE reading of Harry Potter and the Sorcer's Stone.



The DEN office has been open from 8:00-1:00 Mon-Thurs to facilitate families access to materials needed.  We believe that most all families now have materials except for packet pick up and drop off.  We will be open ONLY Thursdays from 8:00-1:00 beginning next week for parent packet pick up and drop off.  


HOWEVER, if you need anything you can call the office number (289-4846) and the secretaries will help you or you can call the principal (293-1635).  We WILL come to the school by appointment should you need something essential.




As per the governor's announcement and in alignment with the 30 day shut down, we will be returning to school on Monday, April 20, 2020.


If you haven't checked out your students' online learning yet YOU NEED TO. It is so exciting. I attended an online class with Ms. Porter's 3rd grade on Thursday and the energy was amazing.





Food service has been extended. Beginning Friday, March 20, lunch and breakfast will be served Monday-Sunday for those needing the service. PLEASE, if you have not received the food previously and want to begin, contact us so we can prepare enough food. Either call the DEN office or Ms. Briggs' cell. THANKS and have a safe and restful weekend.

For your student's learning and safety we will follow Governor Sisolac & the NV DOE.

NO SCHOOL BEGINNING Monday, March 16 until further notice.  Please know:

"This decision is not made out of fear, paranoia, or overreaction.  Rather, it is a proactive and progressive measure designed to do our part to flatten the curve."  Adam Young, District Superintendent


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.
