March 15, 2020
Good Afternoon ECSD Families and Staff,

This is Superintendent Todd Pehrson with an important message.

As you may have heard, in light of the increasing concern around COVID-19, Governor Sisolak, after consultation with local and state wide agencies including the Nevada Department of Education, health officials and school superintendents, has decided that all schools in the State of Nevada will close starting Monday, March 16 through Friday, April 10. I repeat, after much consulting and deliberation, Governor Sisolak has declared to close all schools in Nevada. With this direction from our Governor, ALL Elko County School District schools will close for three weeks starting tomorrow Monday, March 16.

We support our Governor in making this difficult decision in the best interest of the health and safety of our students and staff.

We are hopeful that students will be able return to school Monday, April 13th.

I know this is a difficult time for all of us but as a result of the increasing number of individual cases state-wide presumptively testing for COVID-19, it now becomes necessary for us, to make additional decisions to further safeguard our students, staff and community. 

Over the next few days, our district will be sending out communication to schools, staff and our communities about specific details on how this closure will be conducted including access to education through virtual means and the offering of nutrition programs for our families that may need this support.  Through this process, we are committed to provide you with timely information on a regular basis, so please visit our website for updates on this situation.

Again, the Elko County School District will be closed from March 16th through April 13th.


Todd Pehrson

Dear Parent or Guardian:nurse

Influenza (flu) season is upon us and flu activity is occurring statewide. There has been a laboratory confirmed cases of flu in Elko County, along with an increase in children ill with similar symptoms. People of all ages can get sick with the flu, but particularly school-aged children experience high rates of the illness. Typically, symptoms of flu include a fever above 100 °F with cough, sore throat, chills, malaise, and body aches. Below are recommendations to help prevent further spread:


1. The best way to prevent seasonal flu is to get vaccinated every year.

• All people 6 months and older need a flu vaccine each year.

• Babies cannot get vaccinated until they are 6 months old. It is critical that people who live with or care for children, especially infants younger than 6 months, get vaccinated. (This is called “cocooning” -- when you protect babies by having those around them get vaccinated).


2. Be hygienic to avoid the spread of illness.

• Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. (Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.)

• Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. If soap and water are not available, an alcohol-based hand rub may be used.

• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth. Germs are spread that way.


3. If you or your child is sick:

•     Stay home until you or your child’s fever is gone for at least 24 hours, without the use of  fever reducing medications.

       Please go to your primary care physician for evaluation. If you get sick with flu, antiviral drugs can be used to treat your illness.
