What's Been HAppening?

In case this is your first rodeo...

Prom is tomorrow night, from 7 - 10 pm at The Grill at Highland Lakes Golf Course here in Lago Vista...


This is such a wonderful time in a high school student's life and a memory they will keep forever. It is also a great time to speak with your teen about making good choices on this special night.


In an effort to promote prom safety, we encourage you to have these conversations with your teen:


Before the Prom: Know the plans: Ask the important questions: Who’s driving? Who’s going with you? What is the contact information? Check out his or her complete schedule for the evening.


During Prom: We will have a lot of supervision from staff members, and police officers in an effort to keep things safe. Encourage your student to share any unsafe behaviors with staff immediately.


After: Provide a safety net. Talk about their plans for handling unsafe situations. Be available to “rescue” them from unsafe circumstances with a ride, if needed. Communicate and network with other parents.


Thank you for your support in making this a night full of positive and wonderful memories!

StayAlert System Reminder!

Lago Vista ISD uses StayALERT to help keep our schools safe. StayALERT is a bilingual, confidential website, e-mail, phone and texting avenue for students, teachers, staff, parents and community members to be able to confidentially report unsafe behaviors, suspicious activities, bullying, acts of violence, harassment, and a host of other potential disruptors to school safety.

Users may anonymously report concerns 24-7-365 via the StayALERT website, an e-mail, a phone call to a recorded and monitored line, or via a text message from a cell phone. Photos and video clips pertaining to the StayALERT report may be included. No special app required! Reportable information will be forwarded in a timely manner to a pre-designated school official for review.

To make a report, use one of the methods below:

Attendance Matters.

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

Our schoolwide attendance goal for this year is 97%. Our state funding is based on the percentage of students at school at 10:30 am every day. Higher attendance rate = more money for resources for your student.


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 97% attendance each day.


Thanks for your support!
