Luling ISD - November Newsletter
Homework Help Is Coming!
That doesn't mean we can't help, though! On the district website, under the Parents tab, we are creating a Homework Help page. This page will contain:
-Content-level links to sites where parents and students can find the help they need to figure out those confusing problems or skills
-The grade level Year At a Glance (YAG) documents for each of the core content areas that detail what students are learning
-Links to helpful tips on helping students with their homework
We are in the final stages of completion of the webpage. Be on the lookout!! Help is coming!!

November Spotlight Staff Member
Mrs. Gorner has been teaching for 22 years (Prairie Lea, Lockhart, and now Luling!). She is currently one of the 5th grade ELA teachers at Shanklin. According to her colleagues that nominated her: Mrs. Gorner does an excellent job teaching 5th grade ELAR. She is always pushing her students to do more than they initially thought they could. The students are engaged and excited about learning and sharing their work. Her creative approach and story telling draws students in. She is creating voracious readers and writers!
We are so glad you joined the Luling family, Mrs. Gorner!
Emergency Operations Plan
Conversations about school emergencies, and in particular school shootings, are not easy, but in the world we live in today, they are necessary. My hope is none of us will ever experience such a tragedy in our schools but it is our duty to be prepared. A critical component to safe schools is the uniform classroom response to any incident. Weather events, fires, accidents, intruders and other threats to student safety are scenarios that are planned and trained for by school and district administration and staff.
Luling ISD staff have been reviewing all of our emergency procedures. We have recently adopted the Standard Response Protocol (SRP). The SRP is based not on individual scenarios but on the response to any given situation. SRP conforms to FEMA guidance and thousands of schools and law enforcement agencies have implemented this program across the US.
I have gone on 'safety walks' with local law enforcement at each campus to determine areas that could be potentially unsafe. The district uses the resources from the iloveyouguys.org foundation. The "I Love U Guys' Foundation was created to restore and protect the joy of youth through educational programs and positive actions in collaboration with families, schools, communities, organizations, and government entities.
It is important to recognize that, statistically, schools are some of the safest public spaces where students can spend their day. Nonetheless, our staff has been entrusted to care for the safety of our community’s most treasured possession: our children. We take that responsibility seriously and want you to know we will continue to use best practices and common sense to keep our schools as safe as possible.
