La Grande School District Superintendent George Mendoza joins the Morning Buzz to provide an update on La Grande School District and the most recent school board meeting.

Attention was given to the teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week, and the school board officially recognized the hardworking commitment teachers make while instructing their students. New staff were announced at the meeting, and contracts were finalized for energy efficient lighting, cooling, and heating.

We also discuss recent training on the topic of emergency situations, such as with active shooters. Having a plan in place for communicating effectively during such an event, as well as reuniting students with parents and guardians afterwards, were presented during this training.

Finally, we talk about the recently agreed upon contracts between EOU to share athletic facilities and resources, and also a review of the trip La Grande Baseball team took during Spring Break.
