Superintendent’s Welcome

Welcome! On behalf of the Esmeralda County School board and administration, you are once again invited to participate in one of the most important experiences of your life, another chapter in educating a child. There is no greater investment for a child, certainly no greater reward for a parent, and no greater vocation for educators and support staff. The school community is dedicated to making this experience the best ever. 

To our students: I wish to offer a special welcome. You are the greatest. Your parents and educational community devote so much of their life for your welfare. We love you and want the very best for you. I understand that some are wishing this summer had not ended. Balancing school academics, time with friends, family, athletics, etc. is challenging. It will be hard but I know you can do it; the experiences will prepare you for life after school. Be proud of your school. Be your very best; remember your school will only be as good as you are.  

To our parents: Thank you for sharing your children with us. It is an honor. The educational staff has children and grandchildren also. We know how much they mean to you. With your help we can assist your child in working towards their full potential; just as if they were our own. Your partnership with your school is essential. Please visit with your teachers to see how you can serve in classrooms and on committees. You are always welcome in your school.  

To our staff: I hope you enjoyed a well-deserved few weeks for yourself and with family and friends. I know it is never enough but remember your students are eagerly waiting for you to help them “be all they can be”. A caring adult other than parents makes a huge difference in their life. You will hear me say it often and it bears repeating: there is nothing more important in this life than what you do. There is nothing that will impact this world more than what you do. It is the greatest calling on earth. Thank you for being a part of the Esmeralda School District educational community and our lives.
