Assessments… We are still uncertain if assessments will be waived for this school year as they were last year. However, we are still planning in case we move forward with testing. We want to be prepared. Please be patient as we work through this. Further details will be forthcoming.

LES VIRTUAL EVENT ANNOUCEMENT Greetings Students, Parents & Families, I hope you are doing great! Well, it’s almost spring time. I want to encourage you to “Spring into Action” by joining us in the first-ever, “Laguna Elementary Virtual Run/Walk Event” to be held during Spring Break from March 15th-March 21st, 2021. LES students will have one week to complete their age-group mileages and will receive a prize as a result of their run/walk accomplishment. We are asking parents & guardians to kindly support us by taking pictures or capturing video clips of your child as they engage or complete their running or walking challenge. This will be used as evidence of participation in the virtual event. So, be on the look-out as we will provide you with more information and details in the next upcoming weeks! Continue to be healthy and strong! Remember to social distance, mask-up and wash your hands. We know you can do this—keep moving forward and take good care of yourselves and each other. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at: or at (505) 552-9200.
Many Blessings,
Ms. Treva Riley, Phys. Ed. Laguna Elementary School

We are working on bringing LMS a virtual event. Information will be posted as it is organized.

Attention ENCINAL and SEAMA K'awaika Hanu Internet (KHI) customers:

Thank you for your patience, The Paraje / Seama PTP link equipment was successfully installed and the link was upgraded. This upgrade is a stepping stone for what to come. We are working with the POL Public Works on a Network upgrade project funded by the CARES ACT and supported by our tribal leadership and administration. Included in the project are tower replacements, equipment upgrades at your home and at the tower sites. These upgrades will increase bandwidth. A formal announcement will be forthcoming.

At this time the Paraje / Seama link has been tested and the internet is back up. We are actively working with our vendors to optimize our system. We will continue to monitor this link.

If your internet didn’t reestablish connection please do the following:

• Unplug the power cord to your router only. (The router is the device installed in your home with 2 or 3 antennas- DO NOT UNPLUG THE RADIO AT THIS TIME)
• Leave unplugged for 10 minutes, after 10 minutes plug the routers power cord back in.
• Let your router power up for 10 minutes, Check for internet.
• If no internet is established, Try the process once more.
• If no internet is established, You will have to reset the router. If you haven’t tried this before you can call our 24/7 tech support line @ 1-855-326-6017 and they can assist you.
• To reset the router - Locate the rest button on your router, It’s a pin hole looking button big enough to put a paperclip into. It’s usually on the back or bottom of the router. The white routers have a button on the back right side of the router- it says WPS/Reset.
• While the router is powered on, using a paper clip, press in the reset button for 10 seconds or until you see the lights on the front of the router start to blink. Allow the router to go through the reset process (5 to 10 minutes). Check for internet connection by opening a browser and pulling up a website. IF you're unable to connect please call our 24/7 tech support line @ 1-855-326-6017 and they can assist you.

We apologize for the inconvenience and ask for your patience.

Thank you
