Byron "Tanner" Cross

Leesburg Elementary School physical education teacher Byron “Tanner” Cross.

Loudoun County Public Schools is appealing a circuit court judge’s decision to reinstate an elementary teacher who had been suspended after publicly stating he would not refer to transgender students by their chosen names or pronouns, according to a Friday press release.

On June 8, Circuit Court Judge Jim Plowman Jr. issued a temporary injunction reinstating Byron “Tanner” Cross, a physical education teacher at Leesburg Elementary School, following a three-hour hearing on June 4.

So why don't we do this on a Friday afternoon and go on vacation. School Board cowards of the county.
