News From Mr Vogler - Principal of LVMS

Dear Parents And Guardians,


Please join me for coffee on Wednesday, August 9th from 7-8am here at the LVMS library. It is my goal to establish an on going line of communication with families. This will offer an intentionally informal opportunity to discuss student and family experiences and expectations as they regard Lago Vista Middle School.


In addition to the coffee, I will be scheduling a few opportunities in the evening where we can engage the aforementioned informal discussions with one another. I recognize that not all of our parents/guardians will be able to attend morning coffee sessions, but we do all typically eat dinner in the evenings.


As I get dates for coffee and dining on the calendar, I will be sure to make you all aware via our school online calendar and newsletter.


Until then, I look forward to meeting some of you at the first "Coffee With the Principal!"

Calling all incoming 6th graders and students new to LVMS!

We will host a New Student Orientation on Thursday, August 10th from 5-6pm. This event is not mandatory, but will be a great way for our new students to learn more about being a Viking at LVMS.


Parents can drop off and pick up their students at the normal parent loop near Viking Hall.


We can't wait to welcome our students back to school!

Lago Vista ISD uses the ParentLink communication system from Blackboard to assist in alerting parents, families, and employees of important information, such as school closures.

The District has a one-stop shop for all District publications and forms, including course catalogs, student handbooks, grading guidelines, and special programs information...and we are continuing to build this resource as documents and handbooks become available.
