Red Ribbon Activities October 24th-28th

Lago Vista ISD’s Viking Character Trait for the month of October’s is Respect! As a part of our character education activities for October, Lago Vista ISD participates in the national Red Ribbon Campaign. Red Ribbon Week is the largest drug prevention campaign in the nation. It is an ideal way for our schools and community to unite and take a visible stand against drugs. We encourage students to pledge to respect themselves by being drug free. All students and staff are invited to show their personal commitment to a drug free lifestyle by participating in our 2016 Red Ribbon Week activities.

High School Football Game on October 7th

If you are planning to attend the Lago Vista football game versus S. A. Cole in San Antonio on October 7th, please read the following gate requirements below when entering the military base:



All adults in a vehicle will need to provide a license or photo ID.

Vehicle registration stickers will need to be current.

They will not allow vehicles on the base if they have an expired sticker.


The gate typically closes at 10pm each evening, but we work it out on game night for the installation to keep the gate open until at least 11pm to allow visitors ample time to leave after the game without having to drive through the base.

Box Tops Needed!!

The Intermediate School is collecting Box Tops for Education this year. We are hoping to make enough money to purchase a laminator for the teacher's workroom and headphones for classrooms.

Transportation Reminder

Your child's safety is our number one priority at LVIS. With that in mind, our goal at the 4th and 5th grade level is to develop a sense of independence and personal accountability in our students.


To help reinforce this new independence and responsibility, students are expected to know how they get home each day. If they miss the bus or remain at the car rider area after 3:20, then they will go to the front office to call their parent/guardian.



We understand that plans change from time to time. If your child's mode of transportation is changing, then a transportation change will need to be sent to Kristina Bell in the front office at:

Thank you for your support,
