Boys Athletics - If your son is in last period athletics and you need to pick them up, we ask that you pick them up BEFORE 3PM.


School Time - Please remember that we teach from "bell to bell" each day and when you pull your student(s) out early or they arrive late to school, they miss valuable class time. Thank you for understanding!

Drop Off/Pick Up in the Morning

Drop off and pick up in the morning and afternoons have been really smooth(especially for the first days!). A few reminders -


- In the morning, drop off is between 7:35 - 8:00. 6th, 7th and 8th grade can be dropped off either in the front of the school or behind the school. If your student needs breakfast, they can be dropped off by the cafeteria.


- Important note - we cannot guarantee supervision before 7:30.


- If you would like to park and have your student walk to you, park across the street by the baseball fields.


- 6th Grade Pick Up after school is in the front of the school. 7th and 8th grade pick up is in the back of the school.

A Message From Mr. Webb

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 Questions...

Q: How will I know if my student has been exposed?

A: If your student is determined to be a close contact of a student who has tested positive for COVID, you will be personally notified. If your child is in the same grade level as a student who has tested positive, you will receive an email.


Q: Are masks required?

A: LVISD does not require students, parents, teachers, staff members or visitors to wear masks or face coverings while on district premises. However, the wearing of face masks is allowed and is highly encouraged.


Q: Can I choose for my child to do at-home/remote learning this year?

A: The state has not provided for a funded remote instruction option this school year. Students not at school will be under normal attendance requirements. Exceptions to this are students who are isolated because of a positive COVID result or who are quarantined due to being a COVID close contact.
