Dear LISD Families,
It's that time of year, and we are so excited to welcome back Lobo staff and students. We hope all our LISD families had a fantastic break and that you fully enjoy these last days of summer. Staff return next week and we have five full days of professional development, rich conversation, and preparation so we are ready for students to arrive on September 6.
We have a number of new LISD staff members as well as folks who have taken on new roles for the 2022-23 school year, and we will formally introduce them in our next newsletter. If you are a new LISD family, we hope you'll be pleased to learn that we send a K-12 newsletter out (almost) every Friday with important dates and information, updates, photos, recognition, and celebrations.
We hope to see you all at Back to School Night (details below)!
All our best to you and your family,
Mary and Martha
First Day of School: Tuesday, September 6, 8:30 elementary, 8:35 secondary
