We are excited to share that LVISD now has a free online ALICE Training portal available to all parents and family members of students in our district. ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate) is an emergency response protocol designed to prepare our students, staff, and families to prevent, mitigate, respond to, and recover from a critical incident on our campuses. The ALICE Training Institute has helped more than 5,000 school districts get prepared, including LVISD – and now our parents and families can take the same training provided to our students and staff. CLICK HERE to register for your free ALICE Training course TODAY.

Classroom Concerns and Questions
Cafeteria Charge Policy
La Vernia ISD has adopted a new charge policy for the 2019/2020 school year. This policy allows students to charge up to 5 meals. Each student will be allowed to charge a maximum of 5 meals before he/she will receive an alternate meal consisting of a ham & cheese sandwich, fruit & milk. We will continue to send communication home with students and continue to send notifications by email and phone call. Please enroll in Titan to manage your student's cafeteria balance.
