What Are You Going to Be???
We'd like for our students to have a great experience on October 29th! During our Pumpkin Parade, the office staff will be providing kids with goodies as they pass by the office along their walk. If you wish to send non-candy (pencils, bubbles, stickers) treats for your child's class, any deliveries must be made before 10am since the office will be busy providing a great experience for our students and we will be unable to deliver any items past this time.
Apex Fundraiser Coming Soon!

Remote Conferencing Opportunity for Isolated or Quarantined Students
Lago Vista ISD students may be eligible to participate in remote conferencing for attendance purposes in the event they are unable to attend face-to-face instruction on campus. Students are eligible for remote conferencing if both of the following requirements are met:
The student is unable to attend school because of a temporary medical condition; AND
The total amount of remote conferencing does not exceed more than 20 instructional days over the entirety of the school year.
A student who is absent due to other reasons not listed above will not qualify to participate in remote conferencing and will be marked absent each day he/she is not physically present in school.
In addition to the two requirements above, one of the following requirements must also be met:
The student’s temporary medical condition is documented by a physician licensed to practice in the United States; OR
The student has a positive test result for a communicable condition (such as COVID-19); OR
The student has been identified as having been in close contact with COVID-19.
Students in remote conferencing instruction will continue to work on class assignments via Seesaw, Google Classroom, or Canvas, and receive synchronous (live) assistance from a designated Remote Conferencing teacher. To the extent possible, a dedicated certified teacher will be designated to provide remote conferencing throughout the duration of students’ time in this setting, but it will not be the students’ teacher of record. In addition to working on assignments, students will be required to attend daily attendance meetings that will count for the day’s attendance and keep your child within the 90% attendance rule while out temporarily.
You will be notified by ParentLink with specific remote conferencing instructions and Google Meet links if your child qualifies for this temporary opportunity. If your child receives a close contact notification from the school, there will be a link to a form to complete if you wish for your child to participate in remote conferencing.
Is Your Child Going to be Absent?
