Back to School!

LA Staff News


I can stand and deliver or you can choose your location and read for yourselves. Oh, you'd rather read for yourself?! Great!! Here it is!! Fetters told me 13 pages was ridiculous so I chopped it down to 12 for you. You can thank him later.

Excited to see you all at breakfast on MONDAY!!! :)

If I don't do anything else, I'm clicking this link and reading this!!

School Re-Entry Information UPDATE

The proposal for LA students to have the option to attend 5 days per week was denied. I sent a more restrictive proposal (Add Wednesdays--A group in AM, B group in PM; can credit deficient, IEP/504, and/or 9th graders have the option to attend more days?). Waiting on an answer.
