First Day of School 2021
Tuesday, August 10, looked a lot like most first days of school with students nervously getting off buses and navigating new schedules. This year, every student and staff member wore protective masks to protect everyone in the COVID-19 pandemic. While the actual smiles weren’t visible, the joy in being back at school learning together came through. Here’s a quick look at the first day at all six LEAD Public Schools:
LEAD Neely’s Bend Teacher Jaime Otero gets updated information from students.
LEAD Cameron Teacher Willa Bakarr gives a student a name tag.
A LEAD Southeast Middle School student gets directions from Principal Emma Mac.
LEAD Neely’s Bend Receptionist Jackey Sanchez walks a student to class.
LEAD Brick Church Teacher Ms. Perkins introduces herself to students in an ELA class. She shared that she loves football and looks forward to Monday-morning quarter-backing with students this fall.
During the first day of gym class at LEAD Academy, students sit socially distanced and learn about their teacher and his expectations for this school year.
Students at LEAD Cameron Middle School line up to return to the portables following a bathroom break.

Here’s to a great year, LEADers!
