Thank you for making the specialists night a great success!
Clark County School District Police Department and local law enforcement investigated the threat circulating on social media yesterday, and they do have a person in custody who was arrested overnight.
Thank you to law enforcement who work hard every day to ensure our schools are safe. School will be in session today.
A reminder: All threats made against schools will be turned over to law enforcement for investigation, and making threats against a school is a serious crime.
Recommendations from the American School Counseling Association for Helping Children After a Tragic Event
• Try and keep routines as normal as possible. Kids gain security from the predictability of routine, including attending school.
• Limit exposure to television and the news.
• Be honest with kids and share with them as much information as they are developmentally able to handle.
• Listen to kids’ fears and concerns.
• Reassure kids that the world is a good place to be, but be honest about the fact that there are people who do bad things.
• Parents and adults need to first deal with and assess their own responses to crisis and stress.
• Rebuild and reaffirm attachments and relationships.
In light of the recent events and tragedy here in the Las Vegas Valley, a message was just sent out by the school district, notifying all families that after-school events and activities have been canceled for today.
Please know that this does, indeed, include our Jack and the Beanstalk auditions, STEAM club, Spanish Class, Learning Lab and the Good News Club here at Nate Mack. We will resume enrichment activities tomorrow and all students with permission slips will have the opportunity to audition for Jack and the Beanstalk tomorrow after school. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to call our school at 702-799-7760.
