Congratulations to the 2021 Nominees
The 2021 Eagle Athletic Foundation Hall of Fame Dinner scheduled for January 23, 2021 has been postponed until 2022 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The EAF Board made the decision based on an abundance of caution for the community as well as state and county guidelines. The scheduled inductees are: Student Athletes; Jesse Gillespie (Water Polo/Swim), Laurel Runnels-Mass (Basketball/Softball), Daniel Lintner (Basketball), Coach Ernie Santa Cruz (Girls’ Volleyball) and Dr. Sean Devine (Team Doctor).
The EAF board plans to induct the above recipients at the Hall of Fame Dinner in 2022. Dates and time will be released as soon as they are solidified.
A Message from Paul Fawcett, LMUSD Superintendent
I hope this email finds you and your family safe. As you may recall, on November 17, the decision was made to affix the reopening of our schools for in-person learning to the county’s status remaining in the Red Tier for two weeks. In order to advance back into the Red Tier, the county must meet the Red Tier metrics for two consecutive weeks, which means we must meet the requirements for a total of twenty-eight days. Today (Monday) is twenty-eight days from January 11, 2021 and it is greatly disappointing that based on today’s numbers, we will not be able to reopen to hybrid in-person learning on January 11, 2021. Phase 1 and Phase 2 special education programs and learning pods remain unaffected by this.
Our goal remains the same, to return students to in-person learning in the safest manner possible. In addition to providing the best distance learning experience possible, our staff has been working tirelessly to be ready to return to in-person learning. Classrooms and campuses have been physically restructured, staffing adjustments have been made, bipolar ionization systems have been installed in HVAC units, and procedures have been finalized in preparation for a quick turnaround when opportunity arises. When the rates begin to improve, we will communicate new dates with as much advance notice as possible.
In addition to the recent regional stay-at-home order that does not change the current guidance for schools, the governor’s administration, the State Board of Education and other state entities have released resources, FAQs and additional guidance with more expected to be released later in the week. See below:
- Regional Stay-At-Home Order
- Department of Public Health Guidance
- Cohorting Guidance
- COVID-19 Restriction FAQs
Thank you for your continued patience and support.
