STAAR EOCs are coming up soon!

TEA has opted to not offer exams remotely. STAAR EOCs are required for graduation, even in a year as chaotic as this one! We are making plans to safely test all of our students. Each student will have their temperature checked upon arrival. Desks will be six feet apart and disinfected between each use. Masks will be required while in the building. We will also test our face to face and remote students in separate locations to the best of our ability. Students who attend face to face will test in the gym while remote students will test in the MAC. Please make plans to have all students attend on the dates of their exams. Students should plan to arrive at 7:35 and go straight to their testing locations. For those of you planning transportation, students should be finished around noon.

Biology: May 4

US History: May 5

Algebra I: May 6

Texas Success Initiative Assessment (TSIA)

Lago Vista High School will offer the TSIA this spring. This exam helps students determine if they are prepared for college-level coursework. If you are an entering college student in Texas, you are required to take the TSIA—unless you are already exempt. The document below is the Student Informative Brochure. Please look over the brochure!

Any student interested in taking the TSIA2 must complete a pre-assessment activity and bring their email of completion with them on test day. Mrs. Hylander will send out information on how to sign up for the test in Canvas at the end of next week. It will be FREE!

Attention Parents of Bus Riders!

As you know, students moving between face-to-face and remote instruction is to be expected this year. The number of students riding our bus routes not only changes each 9 weeks, due to required periods of isolation and quarantine, ridership changes from day to day. Although we are working to keep pickup and dropoff times as consistent as possible, we ask that parents please prepare for buses to arrive within a 10-15 minute window on either side of the established pickup/dropoff time.

For more information on transportation services, including how to look up your student's bus route information, please visit

As always, we appreciate your patience and flexibility as we work to meet the needs of our students and families!


Students must have a permit on their car. Permits will be $25. Forms will be available to pick up from the front office. Students must show driver's license and a valid proof of insurance to get a parking spot. If students do not have parking permits they will receive consequences at school.


Bell Schedule

Each Monday and Thursday is an A day. Tuesday and Friday will always be B days. Wednesdays will be virtual and will follow the C day schedule.

Attendance Matters

The vast majority of our students with excessive absences fail to pass their classes. Students need to be engaged in Canvas everyday.

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.

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!

How to check your student's grades:

As you are aware, Lago Vista High School uses Canvas for delivering assignment information and communicating with our students. LVHS will be using the gradebook function in Canvas to communicate grades with parents and students. Grades will be posted in Ascender, but parents can use Canvas to see the posted assignments that make up that current grade. Here are a few of the benefits of using the Canvas gradebook:

  • 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: An even easier option is to have your student log in to their Canvas account and show you their current assignments and grades.

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.
