LHISD mourns the loss of Louine Noble, a former Superintendent and Principal in LHISD.

Louine held many roles at LH but the one she held constant was advocating and serving the children and the community. As a principal in Liberty Hill, she held high expectations for people to do what was right, every time... every day. Many of my former parents who were her students would light up when they realized I knew her. Story after story was shared about her singing, her laugh, her fierce commitment, and incredible energy and work to support learning and doing what was right.

I would hear as many stories about celebration as I did consequences. Serving at a time when "swats" were still a discipline technique, Louine never let a child leave after such a moment without making sure they knew how much she loved them. She never stopped loving someone who was hers. Ever. She had such high expectations, and never said a negative word about anyone, She was humble. One of her memorable sayings was, "You're one in a million!" She truly was.

As a superintendent, her staff was dedicated to her. They followed her vision to get better, stronger, achieve greater things. Why? Because 1) it was absolutely right for children, and 2) Louine's straight forward honesty and loyalty to each person serving children and community were rock solid. Her vision of excellence was instrumental in the foundation needed to grow. She didn't mince words if it was wrong for kids. She didn't hold back her joy when achievements were made.

Louine was ahead of her time. She knew that curriculum alignment was the target, teaching in the style a child required, mistakes could be forgiven but were required to improve, and we could all grow in excellence with practice, patience, and never giving up. If you debated with her, you better have your information straight. If you were doing what was right, she protected you like a warrior. Her Panther Pride was unwavering and remained always.

Louine committed her life not only to the children of Liberty Hill but the community as well. She sought people who would take the stand of what was right for all children. She made each person believe they were special and saw all they could be. Louine knew EVERYONE she looked in the eye was someone that God loved, and she treated them that way. She was a true CHAMPION.

LHISD has launched two new resources on the Return to Learn website to help staff, families, and the community stay informed of the COVID presumptive or positive cases in our district. An after-hours process for our parents has also been implemented to notify the Health Services Department of presumptive or positive COVID cases after hours. These resources are located on the district Return to Learn webpage at this link.

Community Engagement and News

It has been a busy week for LHISD. Being the largest school district in the greater Austin Area to start school back in person this week, many news outlets wanted to interview the superintendent and report about the start of school. Superintendent Snell was happy to speak with them and talk about the successes of the return to school and some of the challenges as well. KXAN and The North Austin News interviewed Mr. Snell on returning to school and how our district has handled it with COVID-19.

More important to him was to make time for the community and answer their questions. He served as the guest presenter at the Chamber of Commerce Lunch and Learn August meeting sharing return to school information and discussing enrollment growth and future projections moving forward. Thank you to the Chamber for the invite and hosting of this event.

Part of going back to school was a change in the mask rules based on outbreaks in LHISD. This decision was not popular, but Mr. Snell did not shy away from that conversation. He asked to go live on the LH Moms Facebook page and discuss the change live with parents. He also makes time to answer any other questions parents have about LHISD and discusses opportunities for parents to get involved and stay connected during this time when the buildings are closed to visitors.

The district has received a plethora of parent or staff emails/messages, thanking our district for returning to school and giving parents the choice of in-person or remote learning. Thank you Panther Nation for your continued support! He is so proud and thankful for our Panther Family.
