Special Recognition

Thanks to everyone on the Executive Committee for making this happen!  We have had MANY positive responses from both our members and the community!  

A special thanks to Abbey McNutt for all of her work.  She is the one that brought the idea up to me and followed through with all of the restaurants!  Thanks for all her extra work, even with a toddler at home she took on this extra task!

School Year 2020 Startup


As your leadership, the LEA Exec Team has received many concerns and questions about the safety with the startup of the year on Plan A in August.  This led to a letter that was written and voted on by the Exec to present to the district.  We believe at this time, it is not in the best interest of students or staff to return on Plan A in August.  

Also you can find an FAQ above on Startup 2020.  These are questions that have been asked and will continually be updated.  

Sharon Mays, President

Our students look to us for guidance, what message are your actions sending?  I asked Aisha Moore to give us some ideas on how all of us can understand and set good examples to our students, fellow staff members, and our community.    

Now, more than ever, we have a responsibility to show our students that we are doing our part to be inclusive and responsive and that we are working with them to build a more just world. I challenge you to step out of your comfort zone and consider adding one of these books about race to your summer reading list. Getting informed is only the first step on a lifetime journey of anti-racism, but it’s a necessary one that these enlightening reads can help you make.


“As educators, we (sometimes unknowingly) step into roles of advocate, caretaker, guide, and even mother or father to students. Students pay attention to everything we say and do.

They particularly pay attention to our silence."

-Jamilah Pitts
