As co-presidents of the Cordova Education Association, Laura Hanson and I would like to thank the NVE Tribal Council and the Ilanka staff for making the COVID vaccine available to Cordova teachers. While we cannot provide specific numbers or percentages of staff who have been vaccinated, we are all grateful for the opportunity.

The Cordova School District has worked hard to keep our schools open under ever changing circumstances. We appreciate the community support and especially NVE and Ilanka who have expedited vaccines for teachers and staff. We also offer a shout out to the nursing staff, who have made each of us feel comfortable and well cared for.

We are eager to get back to a regular schedule and the school activities everyone enjoys when it is safe to do so. Vaccinating our teachers and staff is the first step. Thank you Cordova, for your faith in us as a school district, and thank you NVE Tribal Council and Ilanka for helping us to continue to do the work we all love.
