April 17 Update

Week at a Glance: April 20-24

GOVERNOR ABBOTT CANCELS SCHOOL

Texas Governor Greg Abbott Friday announced all Texas schools will remain closed for the rest of the 2019-20 school year. LISD will continue with its At-Home Learning plans and will continue communicating with families about what comes next. 

APRIL 20 WILL BE A SCHOOL DAY

The April 20 bad weather day will be used, which means it is now a regular school day. At-home learning will take place.

TECHNOLOGY UPDATE 

Does your family still need a technology device? The district is working to ensure all LISD families have at least 1 device per 2 students in a household. Beginning Monday, April 20, families still needing an iPad may call 469-713-5964 to schedule a pickup reservation.

NEW STUDENT ENROLLMENT

Are you enrolling a new student in LISD for the 2020-21 school year? We have resumed new enrollment for next year. Since campuses are closed, all enrollment processes will be done virtually, including document collection. This includes new incoming kindergarten and Pre-K students. Learn more on the enrollment webpage


Reminders:

AT-HOME SUPPORT

LISD recently launched At-Home Support to help with questions or needs as you explore at-home learning with your student. You can find self-guided help documents or call, chat or email live representatives who can provide support. Visit LISD.net/athomehelp to get started! 

DIGITAL CITIZENSHIP

As a reminder, the LISD Code of Conduct is still in place and digital citizenship is important during a time where we are communicating primarily with technology. For more information about digital citizenship, see our latest update and find tips for using WebEx Teams as a family here
