• Alert: Attention Parents/Guardians: We will be changing the method of how you receive texts from our BrightArrow Notification Software. This new method requires that you provide approval to continue to receive our texts. Our notification provider will be sending a text message seeking your approval to continue to receive text messages from us. Please reply “YES” to the text message. From then on you will be receiving all text messages from 87569 that are from us once you give your text reply approval. If you DON'T reply yes, then you will NO longer be receiving text messages from our school district. We will be sending out a test message on Friday, November 15th to test our software as well as allow you to reply "Yes" to continue receiving texts from the BrightArrow Notification Software.

Principal's Message

Mr. Eriksen

Skyler Eriksen
MS/HS Principal

Welcome to Elk Point-Jefferson High School and Middle School!


We are excited to have you become a member of our school community.  As Huskies we are proud of the many and varied achievements of our students, the staff who support them, and the sense of community that comes within our environment. That sense of community is focused upon encouraging students to recognize and develop the potential they have by having high expectations in the classroom, in their behavior, in their relationships with others, and their future goals. Finding the balance within our community to support this endeavor is the key to developing young people of intellect, compassion, and who have a strong enthusiasm for life. 


We have a great deal of which to be proud.  In particular, our strong academic performance is an aspect which our staff has worked diligently to maintain and improve. Evidence that support this work is witnessed through the academic assessments provided at both the state and national level. Our students routinely score in the top levels in our state through a variety of state and national assessments such as the ACT. 


We look forward to welcoming you into our school community.  Should you have any questions, please give the office a call at (605) 356-5900 or email at skyler.eriksen@k12.sd.us.
