DON’T MESS WITH TEXAS® K-12 ART CONTEST

Keep Texas Beautiful and the Texas Department of Transportation invite Texas students in kindergarten through twelfth grade to submit their best litter prevention-inspired artwork to be considered for the Don’t mess with Texas Calendar. Students with the top 13 designs will have their work featured in the calendar. One winner will be selected from each grade. Stay tuned for details on the 2020 contest. For more information go to KTB.org

ATTENDANCE MATTERS

The vast majority of our students with excessive absences fail to pass their classes. Students need to be at school everyday.


Our school wide attendance goal for this year is 98%.


For students who miss school, here is some very important attendance information:


  • 3 or more unexcused absences in a 4 week period - warning letter sent home and phone call from the principal.
  • 7 or more unexcused absences in a 6-month period - warning letter sent home and Behavior Intervention Plan meeting called with the parents, student, and assistant principal.
  • 10 or more unexcused absences in a 6 month period - truancy charges are filed. Parent, student and school administrator will be summoned to appear in truancy court.


Our campus goal is to reach 98% attendance each day.

Thanks for your support!

LET'S WORK TOGETHER, VIKINGS

Lago Vista ISD recognizes that communication between campuses and parents is a crucial part of building a strong school-home partnership, which we greatly value. As such, the District is committed to providing open, two-way communication and encourages all Lago Vista ISD parents to share the same commitment.


While social media presents us with an amazing venue to share and exchange information, if a concern arises regarding your child, or child’s campus, please contact the campus immediately. This timely communication directly with the campus is a crucial first step in working with you to resolve your concerns. As a district, we are committed to ensuring that all concerns are addressed as quickly as possible, but

campuses are only able to assist with finding solutions when we are made aware of concerns through direct communication.


Thank you for your helping with Lago Vista ISD's continued efforts to build strong and effective partnerships with our parents!

STAYALERT SYSTEM REMINDER
