Each fall, the Los Alamitos Education Foundation (LAEF) is proud to partner with Los Alamitos Unified School District’s Superintendent to host the annual State of the District breakfast event. As with so many events in 2020, this year’s breakfast had to be canceled. “We were holding out hope that the event could take place, but we are now officially canceling this year’s event due to the ongoing pandemic and gathering restrictions,” states LAEF Executive Director Carrie Logue.
LAEF decided that, although it has been a very trying year, Los Al Unified staff has worked incredibly hard and has shown tremendous courage for the children of our community. With that in mind, LAEF compiled a video timeline for the community to view which shows how staff has risen to the challenge of a global pandemic and supported Los Al kids through determination, patience, and love. It features dates, events, photos, and videos about school closures this spring and the reopening under a hybrid model this fall. It is posted to the LAEF YouTube Channel and the LAEF website (LAEF4kids.org/StateoftheDistrict).
The State of the District breakfast is typically an opportunity to connect with community members and parents who are passionate about education and the district. Even though the event isn’t taking place, Alamitos Eye Care has stepped up to support again this year and has been deemed the Legacy Sponsor. They have been the title event sponsor since the event inception in 2014.
“Especially this time of year, we reflect on the many things for which we are thankful,” continues Logue, “On behalf of the LAEF Board of Directors and Staff, we appreciate and applaud the incredible efforts of the Los Alamitos USD School Board, Administration and Staff for their endless spirit of determination to teach, serve and support every Los Al kid!”
