May 7, 2021

Hello from the Board of Trustees!

As another incredible school year wraps up, we want to recognize each of you for a job well done. We appreciate the daily commitment you have made to show up—both literally and figuratively. You have pushed yourself to learn, grow, and do hard things. Each of you has grown in more ways than you know, and we as a Board praise you for your efforts.  

There will be some changes on the Board over the next few months as Suzanne Christensen, Dale Millsap, and I reach the end of our service. Jana Stout was elected as the new Board Chair. Our new Vice-Chair is Molly Foster, and Natalie Boyack is our new Treasurer. They begin their roles on July 1. Amy George was elected as the new Secretary and has already started her duties. I am confident that the Board will continue serving the LAU students, families, and administration, and I look forward to everything the future has in store.

Thank you, and enjoy your summer!  

Busch Jones

Chair, LAU


Action Items

Computer return is now available: Students with a damaged computer, not returning to LAU, or who do not want a computer over the summer are required to return them to LAU. Graduating seniors can purchase a blue laptop for $25. Shipping is an additional $20. Please sign up here if you have a computer to return. Please Note: If your student is now registering for the PG ILC through Canyon Grove Academy, you will need to return your LAU computer. Families must check out different devices from Canyon Grove Academy.
