What happened to Pre-AP?

Need a Thermometer?
Lago Vista ISD is requiring that all students be screened prior to coming onto campus, which includes having a temperature taken. We hope to assist families who do not currently own and who will have difficulty acquiring a thermometer. Please complete ONE REQUEST FORM PER FAMILY.

Our schoolwide attendance goal for this year is 97%. Our state funding is based on the percentage of students at school at 10:45 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.
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!
How to check your student's grades:
- Integration with the Assignments and Quiz functions within Canvas (auto grading, streamlined feedback, peer editing).
- Instant and improved communication with students on their assignment grades.
- Observer view (Parent view) allows for the parent to see grades and have access to the content as well as teacher comments.
- Uniformity of Canvas gradebook use across campus.
- Parents can still use TxConnect for a “big picture” look at a student’s grade and use Canvas for a detailed contextual look at student’s grades.
- In many cases, parents can access the actual assignment turned in by their student. This eliminates student responses of “I turned it in.” and “I’m not sure why I got a bad grade.”
Parents can create a Canvas Parent account by following the steps found here: https://sites.google.com/lagovista.txed.net/technology/canvas. An even easier option is to have your student log in to their Canvas account and show you their current assignments and grades.
