Are You Ready for Some Football??
1. All LVES and LVIS students must be accompanied by an adult guardian in order to attend Lago Vista High School varsity football home games. The students must remain under the supervision of that guardian at all times while at the stadium. Students are not permitted on the practice field at any point during football games.
2. Standing, loitering, or horseplay under and around the stadium stands, concession stands, or any other area is prohibited. Revealing, provocative and/or inappropriate dress will not be allowed, nor will inappropriate behaviors or foul language. Repeat offenders will be required to leave the stadium and campus.
3. Once inside the stadium, middle school and high school students with a student ticket will be allowed to sit in the designated student area on the home side of the stadium. Students may sit in the reserved or general admission sections only if they are under the supervision of an adult guardian.
4. The use of alcohol, controlled substances, tobacco, and vapes are prohibited on school premises.
5. Outside food and drinks are not permitted inside the gates. We have a wonderful Booster Club that provides a full concession stand of food and drinks for you to purchase throughout the game.
Lago Vista ISD appreciates everyone’s cooperation and support as we work to keep a safe and enjoyable environment at Viking football games.

2019-2020 Academic Calendar
Hello LVES Families! Does your child need any school supplies or a backpack? Local churches have generously donated several items, and I would love to give them to students who need them!
This week we started our classroom guidance lessons! Your child will learn what a school counselor does and how I can help them, as well as the meaning of this month’s character trait, Responsibility.
At home, you can talk with your child about responsibility, and teach them that by doing chores, answering for their own actions, being trustworthy, and using good judgment are signs that they are growing up and can be trusted with greater freedom! Try to "catch" your child making responsible choices, and let them know how much it means to you.
"The greatest gifts you can give your children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence." ~Denis Waitley
¡Hola familias de LVES! ¿Necesita su hijo útiles escolares o una mochila? ¡Las iglesias locales han donado generosamente varios artículos, y me encantaría dárselos a los estudiantes que los necesitan!
¡Esta semana comenzamos nuestras lecciones de orientación en el aula! Su hijo aprenderá lo que hace un consejero escolar y cómo puedo ayudarlo, así como el significado del rasgo de carácter de este mes, Responsabilidad.
En casa, puede hablar con su hijo sobre la responsabilidad y enseñarle que al hacer los quehaceres, responder por sus propias acciones, ser confiable y usar el buen juicio son signos de que están creciendo y se puede confiar en ellos con mayor libertad. Trate de "atrapar" a su hijo tomando decisiones responsables, y hágales saber cuánto significa para usted.
“Los mejores regalos que puedes dar a tus hijos son las raíces de la responsabilidad y las alas de la independencia.” ~Denis Waitley
