LVHS Cheer stunts the competition

This past Sunday, LVHS Cheer competed at UCA Regionals in Lewisville, which is the qualifying competition to the National High School Cheerleading Championship.


They earned the top score of 96.4, which is an unprecedented number for our program. The crowd leading section received a near perfect 49.8 out of 50. The second place team, a 5A school, scored 75.5.

LVHS is so proud of the work these kids put in every day and the way they represented our school on Sunday. This group is just getting started and we cannot wait to see what else this year has in store. Next up is the UIL Spirit State Championship in January, where they get the chance to defend the 3A state title from last season. They have now officially qualified for the National High School Cheerleading Championship in Florida and will compete for a national title in February for the first time in program history.


Way to go, girls! We are so proud of you!

Annual Student registration forms

IMPORTANT! PLEASE COMPLETE ANNUAL STUDENT REGISTRATION FORMS IN ASCENDER PARENT PORTAL!

If you have not done so, it is important that you complete the annual registration process ASAP. This must be completed each year because these forms provide us with important permissions and information that must be provided annually. Students without completed registration forms will begin to lose certain privileges until they are completed, so please take a moment to submit those forms in Ascender.


HOW DO I ACCESS PARENT PORTAL?
https://ascportal.esc13.net/ParentPortal/login?distid=227912


¿NECESITA ESPAÑOL?
Todos los formularios de registro también están en español. Para continuar en español, hay un menú desplegable en la esquina superior derecha de la página de inicio de sesión para cambiar al español.


WHAT IF I HAVE A NEWLY ENROLLED STUDENT? WHAT IF DON'T SEE MY ENROLLED STUDENT IN ASCENDER PARENT PORTAL?
If you enrolled your student during summer enrollment, you must still complete annual registration forms. If you don't see your enrolled student when you log in, an Ascender Parent Portal ID is needed in order to link to your student and complete the annual registration forms.

Please email your campus registrar to receive your student's Ascender Parent Portal ID. Please note that there may be slight delays in answering requests during peak times, such as this, but we will get it to you as quickly as possible!

Once you receive your student's Ascender Parent Portal ID from the campus registrar, please log into Ascender Parent Portal, select "Link to Enrolled Student", and enter the Parent Portal ID and the student's date of birth.

WHAT IF I SEE MY STUDENT, BUT DON'T HAVE A "REGISTRATION" OPTION?
In order to complete forms or update data for a student, the email address you have listed in Ascender Parent Portal must match what we have in our system. If you can see your student, but can't update any information, those email addresses do not match. We recommend updating and verifying your email address in Ascender Parent Portal. If you need us to change your email address in our system, please email registration@lagovista.txed.net and your campus registrar. You will be asked to provide your student's full name, date of birth, and grade level for verification purposes.

NEED OTHER HELP?

Bus Notifications

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.


Due to an increase in Stop Arm Violations this school year 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.

COVID-19 Response Protocols

Lago Vista ISD recognizes that the situation surrounding COVID-19 is ever changing. As the year progresses, LVISD will use the following COVID–19 Response Protocols. We hope these strategies will ensure a safe and healthy learning and working environment for our students and staff. The decision to move from one stage to another will not be based on just one factor. We will continue to work with local and state officials, as well as with legal counsel regarding regulatory authority pertaining to these matters.

Covid Related Attendance Concerns?

Lago Vista ISD students may be eligible to participate in remote conferencing for attendance purposes in the event they are unable to attend face-to-face instruction on campus. Students are eligible for remote conferencing if both of the following requirements are met:


  • The student is unable to attend school because of a temporary medical condition; AND

  • The total amount of remote conferencing does not exceed more than 20 instructional days over the entirety of the school year.


A student who is absent due to other reasons not listed above will not qualify to participate in remote conferencing and will be marked absent each day he/she is not physically present in school.


In addition to the two requirements above, one of the following requirements must also be met:

  • The student’s temporary medical condition is documented by a physician licensed to practice in the United States; OR

  • The student has a positive test result for a communicable condition (such as COVID-19); OR

  • The student has been identified as having been in close contact with COVID-19.


Students in remote conferencing instruction will continue to work on class assignments via Canvas, and receive synchronous (live) assistance from a designated Remote Conferencing teacher. To the extent possible, a dedicated certified teacher will be designated to provide remote conferencing throughout the duration of students’ time in this setting, but it will not be the students’ teacher of record. In addition to working on assignments, students will be required to attend daily attendance meetings that will count for the day’s attendance and keep your child within the 90% attendance rule while out temporarily.


You will be notified by ParentLink with specific remote conferencing instructions and Google Meet links if your child qualifies for this temporary opportunity. If your child receives a close contact notification from the school, there will be a link to a form to complete if you wish for your child to participate in remote conferencing.

Want to know more about Canvas?

Lago Vista High School uses Canvas for delivering assignment information and communicating with our students. LVHS will be using the gradebook function in Canvas to communicate grades with parents and students.


Check out our district Canvas website to learn more and set up a parent account.

Parking Permits

Parking permits are on sale! Permits are $25 and you can pay online through my school bucks or with cash or check made out to LVHS. If you pay online please print out your payment confirmation to present to Mrs. Janson. Students can pick a form from Mrs. Janson to complete before purchasing.

Safe Return to In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Services Plan, 2021-2022

Lago Vista ISD is open for face-to-face learning! We want to keep our school community as safe as possible. Face masks are recommended in all district buildings. Please review our Safe Return to In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Services Plan for the 2021-2022.
