Leander MS Insider
Message from the Principal
I want to take time to celebrate something positive going on in the midst of what feels like a lot of negative. This past week, our staff was allowed back into the building to pack up and clean out their rooms in preparation for the final stage of construction that was set to begin at the beginning of June. For 5 days they packed, moved, and cleaned the entire 6th grade wing, library, and all lockers. Their hard work has enabled the construction crew to get into the building a month early! I am excited to tell you that the last part of the LMS remodel is underway! Our incoming 6th graders will now join 7th and 8th graders with new classrooms, HVAC, lighting, and collaborative space. Despite LMS being the oldest school building in the district, it will be completely modern and as functional as a brand new building once this stage is complete. I will continue to provide updates on their progress throughout this process. Go Tigers! - Mr. Haug
The payment window is now open for families to secure their secondary students’ district-provided laptops for the upcoming 20-21 school year. Newly participating students in Grades 6-11 will be issued devices by appointment only through the end of May. Once a payment or scholarship is received, the parent will be contacted by the Campus Technologist to schedule an appointment. For students who pay after the end of May, devices will be issued at the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year or when instruction returns to campuses.
Students with devices currently checked out will keep their devices and bring them to their campuses once on-campus instruction continues for the 2020-2021 school year. Students moving to a new LISD campus will also take their device with them.
Price: $70 for entire year or $35 for students receiving free or reduced lunch.
