The Lakota Education Association would like to congratulate the following recipients of the LEA Scholarship of $1000 each:
John Carter Carstens
Congratulations on your hard work and determination. We wish you the best!
Vaccines were administered Wednesday at West High School. Approximately 1700 were given. It was a big undertaking and many of you had a wait of between 1 and 2 hours. My main concern was the lack of social distancing in the back hallway. Please do not wait for someone to tell you to spread out. Hopefully, when we get the second shot we will have a smoother time but if not, remember to allow at least 3-6 feet between you and the other person. You will not have to wait any longer if we just spread out and be safe! Thanks to everyone for properly wearing your masks ! Thank goodness we all were able to get this!
Let's stay on the right path...Wear Masks, Social Distance, Limit your exposure, Keep Safe!
Candidacy forms are available under LEA Forms/Resources for NEA Rep Assembly July 3-6, 2021. It has not yet been determined if the Rep Assembly will be virtual or take place in Denver, Colorado. If you are interested, you must complete the application and submit to Damian Dagenbach by email or US Mail so that it arrives to him by February 9, 2021.
Candidacy forms are available under LEA Forms/Resources for the LEA Office positions of First VP or Treasurer. If you are interested, you must complete the application and submit to Damian Dagenbach by email or US Mail so that it arrives to him by February 9, 2021.
It was approved through the LEA Executive Committee this past fall that if above positions are not contested, the winners will be determined through acclamation and therefore no vote is needed. If a vote is needed, the LEA leadership will advise you by February 19, 2021, of the alternate plans of voting since the Spring General Meeting scheduled for March 9, 2021, will be held virtually due to COVID.
Our specialized committees are working hard to gather information. If you want to make sure you get updates on the process, you must be on the LEA Constant Contact email list. If you are not and want to be, contact Kevin Carlin with your personal email information. You can contact Kevin at ()
