Destiny has placed first at every single tournament the team has attended this season, except for one. Both of Destiny’s losses come from the Sierra Nevada Classic where Destiny took 4th place. Destiny has brought home 6 first place finishes this season. All three of the girls were a huge part of the team trophy the girls were able to bring home from the battle of the mine. Please congratulate these ladies on an incredible accomplishment!

Andre Hernandez, Andres Trujillo, Aleixo Luna, Alex Trujillo, Caleb Romero, and Fernando Carbajal were all able to place 6th in the tournament.
The women’s team made history! Never in school history has a wrestling team from WWHS brought home a team trophy from a tournament. Not only did the girls bring home a trophy from the tournament on Saturday, all of the lady wolverines went undefeated on Friday night. The wolverine’s men’s and women’s team have a habit of bringing home individual medals, but for the first time ever, the lady wolverines brought home the tournament win! The lady wolverines wrestling team includes Tanya Palafox, Aaliya Domínguez, Veronica Torres, Miranda Soriano, Sydney Howry, Emma Prieto, Gracie Rivera, Faith Gonzales, and Destiny Gonzales. Leading the way for the lady Wolverines are Gracie Rivera, Faith Gonzales, and Destiny Gonzales. All three of these ladies were undefeated on Friday and Saturday. They scored 26 points for the team each! Adding to the team scores were Aaliya Dominguez. Aaliya was able to pin her final two opponents and score 6 points for the team. Sydney Howry had some gritty matches that helped the team gain an additional 4 points. Veronica Torres wrestled extremely tough and brought home a 4th place medal and scored an additional 11 points for the team. All ladies who traveled competed extremely well and they brought home the tournament trophy! Congratulations Lady Wolverines!
We hope this message reaches you in good health. Due to the current snow conditions and in consideration of everyone's safety, we have decided to implement a 2-hour delay for the school's opening tomorrow, January 11, 2024.
School will begin at 10:30 am at WWHS and WWMS and at 10:00 AM at WWES. This delay is intended to allow for improved road conditions and ensure a safer commute for both students and staff. Buses will also operate on a delayed schedule.
Please take the necessary precautions for a safe commute to school, and we appreciate your understanding as we prioritize the safety of our school community.
Please stay tuned for further updates on the school's website or the Elko County website and app.
Thank you for your cooperation.
In the coming weeks, ECSD schools will be installing a new safety and security solution, CrisisAlert™. The @CENTEGIX team will be working during non-instructional time (evenings) to install and test all the components of the CrisisAlert™ solution.

The Nevada School Climate/Social Emotional Learning Survey (NV-SCSEL) is used to gather student feedback about their experiences at school. The NV-SCSEL surveys are administered to students in grade 5 and up throughout the state of Nevada during the fall of each school year.
The NV-SCSEL surveys measure students’ perceptions of key aspects of school climate, including physical and emotional safety, relationships, and cultural and linguistic competence, as well as students’ social and emotional competencies.
The survey is an opportunity for students to anonymously share their experiences of their school’s climate with their school, school district, and NDE. To learn more about the survey, visit nevadaschoolclimate.org.
Elko County School District will be administering the survey to students (5th -12th grade) between November 20th and December 14th , 2023.
Parents can preview the survey here: https://5il.co/28q0d
Questions on the survey are optional. Students can choose not to answer any question they do not want to answer.
Parents can opt their child(ren) out of participating in the survey by contacting their child(ren)’s school. If you have any questions about the NV-SCSEL survey, please contact your child(ren)’s school.
