Construction Update!

A big step will be happening on Monday - the construction fence will be going up around the back of the school, so there will be some differences before and after school for drop off.


Here are the highlights:


Front of the school drop off/6th Grade Pick Up Line After School - NO CHANGE

Drop off in the back of the school/7th and 8th Grade Pick Up Line After School - Pick Up by Viking Hall

Crossing Bar K to get to Baseball Field - Exit the front of the school and a crossing guard will be there.

Entrance to Sporting Events - Use the doors on the Administration Building side.


Here is a video to help show you around, and as always, please feel free to ask any questions!

Applications for Blue Santa

Transportation News and Notes

The district is no longer allowing students to ride to and from school with other students if they are not registered riders on the same bus route. If assigned to the same route they still need a signed note from the parent/guardian or a pass from the campus office for the driver to release them at an unauthorized stop.


The district is experiencing a record number in ridership this year and extra students not assigned to that specific route may displace a student who has already registered for transportation in Ascender Parent Portal and been approved to ride.


Also, Due to an increase in Stop Arm Violations(cars going around buses when the yellow Stop Arm is out), Lago Vista Police Department has assigned officers to follow the buses on their routes.


This was implemented yesterday, will continue through next week and will occur periodically throughout the school year.


Our thanks to Lago Vista Police Department for supporting our bus drivers and for helping ensure the safety of all Lago Vista ISD students.

Retake Day will be November 2nd! If you purchased pictures, please make sure to bring the originals back to exchange.

News and Notes From The Office

Attendance & Nurse - Please email or contact the nurse if your child is home ill. Also, please make sure if your child calls you not feeling well, they must check in with the nurse before leaving due to COVID protocol.

Boys Athletics - If your son is in last period athletics and you need to pick them up, we ask that you pick them up BEFORE 3PM.


School Time - Please remember that we teach from "bell to bell" each day and when you pull your student(s) out early or they arrive late to school, they miss valuable class time. Thank you for understanding!

Here is the bell schedule...first bell starts at 8:00 AM!

Volleyball Tournament

Good luck to our Volleyball teams Saturday in the District Tournament in Llano!

Covid Questions...

Q: How will I know if my student has been exposed?

A: If your student is determined to be a close contact of a student who has tested positive for COVID, you will be personally notified. If your child is in the same grade level as a student who has tested positive, you will receive an email.


Q: Are masks required?

A: LVISD does not require students, parents, teachers, staff members or visitors to wear masks or face coverings while on district premises. However, the wearing of face masks is allowed and is highly encouraged.


Q: Can I choose for my child to do at-home/remote learning this year?

A: The state has not provided for a funded remote instruction option this school year. Students not at school will be under normal attendance requirements. Exceptions to this are students who are isolated because of a positive COVID result or who are quarantined due to being a COVID close contact.
