LUSD Families! We are happy to announce that we will offer our first bus route of 2023 tomorrow morning (2/9/23) down Branscomb Road and will return students after school as well. The attached link will send you to the LUSD website for current bus/van schedules and rules. The North/South 101 runs before and after school will continue to be by van on the same schedule we've followed since the Fall. It is possible we will add a North/South bus route in the next two weeks. Also, please be aware that our bus will need to park in front of the LES office and at the bus lane near the middle school on Willis Avenue. Thank you for your support of LUSD! https://www.lusd.us/documents/transportation/415776
After two years of not having a Mock Trial team due to the complications of Covid-19, Laytonville High School was finally back in the Ukiah Courthouse, going head to head with Ukiah High School in the County Finals to see who would be progressing on to the State Competition. While ultimately Ukiah will go on to State, the Laytonville team made them work for that victory. In addition to their performance as a team, both Hailey Musgrave and Achsa Hill were honored by the Ukiah team as the MVPs for each trial, and the Mock Trial Organizers honored Karan Patel for his Outstanding Opening Statement, Mariah Zaragoza for her Outstanding Closing Argument, and Rylee Doyle for her Outstanding Performance as Bailiff.

Our 4th period Culinary 1 class had their final on Tuesday. They made delectable raspberry turnovers served with homemade lavender ice cream, cheesy herb breads, double chocolate brownies with chocolate ganache, pumpkin whoopie pies and blueberry scones. They did a lovely job, producing dishes that were not only delicious, but also beautifully presented.
Public Safety Final: Swift Water Rescue Students were taught about and observed river dynamics and how water moves in a river bed. How to assess a person floating in the river and how to attempt a rescue. Hitting a moving target, in the river, with an underhand throw, while being yelled at by the victim is very difficult even for experienced and trained personnel. Students did great. Student safety was the most important part of the training. In the end all students participated even the students who were very reluctant. They put on vests, made throws and came out with better understanding and hopefully had some fun. A big thank you to Jon Nielsen, Joe, Jason, and Jacobi to get in the water and play the victims. This is a very rare training for students and even rare within the fire service
All LES basketball games against Anderson Valley are canceled today. There will be practice for both boys and girls after school today.
Our Culinary 2 students had their final Wednesday. They showed off their skills using moist heat cooking methods, including simmering, poaching and steaming, and using produce from the school garden, including broccoli, salad and arugula. Dishes made include poached salmon with dill sauce, sliders with bacon and poached eggs, macaroni salad, steamed broccoli, salad, sesame garlic rice and miso soup. The food was delicious and completed right on time!
The high school basketball games today 1/5 against Rio Lindo and the games tomorrow 1/6 against Anderson Valley are all canceled.
