As you are aware, there has been a great deal of media attention on the Governor's announcement about wanting to start football in what is called season A. If the Governor has his way, some schools could start football season as early as September 28, if they choose to play in season A. These are challenging times as information is shared daily making it more confusing. As it stands now with the information given to us today, we will stay with Season C. In speaking with Mrs. Wallace and the coaches, we feel our athletes would not be ready for competitive tackle football in less than two weeks. We have been conducting an off season workout schedule with students staying in their cohort groups at this time. Here's a video from Superintendent Goines and Athletic Director Cody Hines with more info: https://youtu.be/DI7NJ97xn1M

Thank you Miranda Martinez for this great post on your Facebook page: My Tatum has been having a hard time with school this year. Every morning he is upset and just wants to stay home. I notified the school, never having dealt with this before. The staff at LAES has gone above and beyond to help. Mrs. Gardner has been waiting the last two mornings to walk with him into school. This has helped tremendously. More than she probably knows. All of the elementary staff is so kind and have smiles on their faces every morning. His teacher, Mrs. Laurent, let’s me bother her all day long. Mrs. Montez, trying her hardest and having so much patience at drop off. This and many other reasons are why my children go to school at LAES! We appreciate ALL of you! Thank you isn’t enough! 💙🤍 #TrojanPride
