EOY Info about Smart-Tags
We are coming to the end of another great school year and wanted to provide an update on Student Smart-Tag Bus Passes for the end of this 2022-2023 school year.
- Returning LISD students should keep their Smart-Tag badges until the 2023-24 school year. We do not plan to reprint and reissue badges for our 12,000 students every year. Campuses are welcome to take them up and reissue them to returning students if they choose to do so.
- Students NOT returning to LISD next year should turn in their Smart-Tag badges to their Bus Driver the last two days (5/25 & 5/26) of school. Again, campuses are welcome to take up Smart-Tags for students NOT returning and send them to Transportation if they choose to do so.
- Lastly, as previously mentioned, a student with a lost card will get one (1) free replacement. Thereafter there will be a $5 replacement charge. The Smart-Tag support email address is email@example.com and the phone number is ext #10711, or 512-570-0711.
We are experiencing a slight delay with yearbooks but they should arrive before the end of the school year and will be delivered to students.
If you missed out on pre-ordering a yearbook there will be a limited number available for sale ($20.00 each) These yearbooks will be sold on a first come first serve basis- no reservations will be accepted.
Yearbooks will also be available to purchase online for $24.00 each at EntourageYearbooks.com. Late book orders will available after Monday, May 22, 2023, and ship up to 4 weeks AFTER the delivery of the bulk order that is being shipped to the school. Books will not ship to the school, instead they will be individually shipped to your home address.
Late book sales are printed after the original production run, there might be some differences in the way the book is produced.

Mason has a food program for families! For interested families, weekend meal kits are sent home each Friday with students in bags the student can put in their backpacks.
