New format for COVID letters

You may have noticed that there is a new format to the campus-wide COVID notification letter.

To streamline the reporting process across campuses, campus letters are being sent out via Skyward. Campus letters will come from the email address: skyward@ltisdschools.org


Within the heading of the email you will see the email is being sent from Dolma Diaz and right below you will see: Regarding: (your child's name). Because the email is being generated from Skyward, the campus-wide email will include your child's name. This does not mean that your child tested positive for COVID or that we believe your child tested positive for COVID.


Classroom letters will continue to be sent out and will be in the same format.


Please do not hesitate to reach out, if you have any questions.

Our Clinic Needs Clothes for Tigers!

Sometimes our Tigers are studying so hard that they find themselves in need of a change of undies and/or pants/shorts/warmups to finish out their day of learning. Nurse Chapman is prepared for emergencies--including those that require a change of clothes.


Nurse Chapman reports that she is running really low on new and gently used undies and shorts/pants/warmups in sizes smaller than size 8. If you have undies and/or bottoms in sizes 5T to size 7 that you'd like to donate to help restock Nurse Chapman's cupboard, please feel free to drop them off on any school day.


Thanks!

Update on LTISD Thanksgiving Feast 2021

Dear Lake Travis Parents and Guardians,


Due to current supply shortages, we are unable to acquire the food needed to prepare our annual Thanksgiving Feast for our students as we have done in previous years. We hope to resume this tradition next year as conditions impacting food supply and delivery begin to improve.


On behalf of the LTISD Food and Nutrition Services family, we appreciate your understanding and wish you a safe and relaxing Thanksgiving!


Sincerely,

Ryan Mikolaycik

Director, Food and Nutrition Services
