Leading Forward Message to Parents

Preparing for this school year with the extraordinary circumstances due to COVID-19 required an even deeper level of planning to ensure not only excellent and equitable instruction and learning for all of our Lions, but also the safety and wellbeing of our students and staff.

 

Because school districts are unable to provide the preferred traditional school model, the pandemic required us to apply innovative problem solving--anchored in the guidelines by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Governor Greg Abbott, and the Texas Education Agency--to redefine our learning environments. 

This fall, we have the benefit of lessons learned from the spring distance learning launch as well as the valuable insight from both teachers and parents to apply to model design for this school year. As a result, parents will be able to select an instructional and learning environment that is best for your family. 

Whether you select distance or on-campus learning, Lockhart ISD will provide your child with a Chromebook and school supplies to ensure every Lion is prepared for success. In addition, we want to provide the following assurances:

  • Safety is the highest priority for our students and staff.

  • Safety protocols will be in place for on-campus instruction. 

  • All students and staff will be required to wear a mask or face shield in LISD facilities.

  • We will continue educating our students with the same high standards for all. 

  • Final decisions will be made and adjusted to remain in compliance with current state guidelines.

  • The district will maintain transparency with frequent, timely, and accurate communication.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you in advance for your continued trust, patience, and grace as we try to provide stability, comfort, and direction during these unpredictable times. If you have any questions about this plan or any other concerns, please feel free to email LISDCovidQuestions@lockhart.txed.net or call 512-398-0000.
