After School Programs:  Kids Club & LISD Texas ACE Programs

LISD ACE Program

Lockhart ISD offers Texas ACE programming to serve identified 2nd - 5th graders through a grant funded by the Texas Education Agency. The LISD Texas ACE sites are based at AB Strawn Elementary, Bluebonnet Elementary (serving Bluebonnet and Clear Fork), and Navarro Elementary (serving Navarro and Plum Creek).


Due to COVID-19 and related health & safety concerns about transporting and gathering students in large groups, LISD ACE programming will be a 100% virtual program this school year. LISD ACE site coordinators will contact ACE students and their parents to discuss this year’s online offerings. Parents can access additional information at https://lockhartisd.link/LISDACE.


Kids Club After School Program


Lockhart ISD offers after school programming to pre-K - elementary students. Kids Club supports the student learning experience with the opportunity for additional academic support and enrichment to help all of our Lions in their academic growth. 



The district will offer after school programming at each of the elementary campuses as well as Carver Early Education Center in the 2020-21 school year. This will enable smaller groups of students and avoids the need for transporting students to other sites. 


Kids Club will follow social distancing guidelines of maintaining six feet of distance between students, require face coverings for all participants and staff, provide for frequent opportunities for handwashing and the use of hand sanitizer, and implement modified pick-up procedures as the district will restrict entry into the program except by students and staff.
