Dear Bobcat Parents,

As we start into our second week of in-person learning, I want to say thank you to everyone that has worked to keep our school safe and healthy by following a whole new set of school protocols and procedures! Thank you students! Thank you parents! Thank you staff!


As we continue onward, I want to take a few minutes of your time to share this reminder on pre-screening students each day before they leave the house, as well as what it looks like for re-entry into school.


Again, thank you for your ongoing flexibility and support...we appreciate you!


Stay well,


Principal Kellner

LTISD Protocols for Screening

***Please remember to screen your children each morning before school.***


If your child has even one of the symptoms on the screening list, they should stay home.

Symptoms are:


★ Feeling feverish or a measured temperature greater than or equal to 100.0 degrees Fahrenheit

★ Loss of taste or smell

★ Cough

★ Difficulty breathing

★ Shortness of breath

★ Headache

★ Chills

★ Sore throat

★ Shaking or exaggerated shivering

★ Muscle or body aches

★ Diarrhea

★ Fatigue

★ Congestion or runny nose

★ Nausea or vomiting


Please know that children who come to school with symptoms will be sent home.

It is important that everyone become familiar with the re-entry protocol

Re-entry protocol applies to students who experience symptoms at home OR if they are sent home from school.


● at least one day (24 hours) has passed since recovery (resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications);

● the individual has improvement in symptoms (e.g., cough, shortness of breath); and

● at least ten days have passed since symptoms first appeared.

The 10 days must be observed even if symptoms only last a short while and the child did not have fever.

If your student wants to return to school before completing the above stay at home period, you must either:

● obtain a medical professional’s note (with date) clearing the student for the return based on an alternative diagnosis; or

● obtain an acute infection test (at a physician’s office, approved testing location found at tdem.texas.govc/covid19/, or another site) that comes back negative for COVID-19.

District announces process to request change in child's current instructional status

Dear Lake Travis ISD Parents and Guardians,


As we approach the midway point of the first grading period of the 2020-2021 school year, we would like to remind you of the learning options you have available to best support your children.


Specifically, students currently in remote learning at home may switch to in-person learning at school only at the beginning of each grading period. Conversely, a student who is currently at school for in-person learning on campus may revert to remote learning at home at any time.


To prepare for the next grading period which begins Tuesday, October 13, parents are asked to make the appropriate selection using the Instructional Status Change Form posted on our website before Thursday, September 24. If you will not be making a change to your child’s current instructional status, no action is required.


A listing of Frequently Asked Questions and other resources regarding our learning options are available on the School Year 2020-2021: Learning. Transformed section of our website.


As a reminder, this is a constantly evolving process; conditions and plans are subject to change. Thank you for your continued patience, understanding and flexibility.

Sincerely,

Paul Norton
Superintendent of Schools
