Parents are valued partners in Lago Vista ISD, where we believe that successful learning is best achieved through collaborative partnerships with parents and families. In addition to the resources found on this site, parents are encouraged to contact their student's teachers and school office for more information and opportunities.
Stay Connected with ParentLink!
Lago Vista ISD uses the ParentLink communication system to assist in alerting parents, families, and employees of important information, such as school closures. ParentLink communicates via telephone, SMS text message, email and push notifications from the ParentLink app.
Inclement Weather Procedures
Texas weather is unpredictable and can change rapidly. In the event of inclement weather, the District will call, text, and email the families of all students using the Parentlink notification system.
It is important that phone numbers are kept up-to-date in the school's database so that these calls can accurately reach parents. If there is a change to your phone number, please contact the front office of your student's school and report these changes as soon as they are known. Please note, if there are no changes to the regular school day, the District does not send out emails or other forms of communication.
If school is cancelled or the start of the school day is delayed, all parents, staff, and community members registered to receive announcements from the District will receive an email, phone call, and/or text message from the District. Updates on school closures will also available on the LVISD Website and on the District's Facebook account. The news media will be notified of school closures as soon as the decision is made.
At the beginning of the year, you will be asked to fill out an information sheet on how your child should go home in case of an emergency dismissal during the school day. Please notify the school of any changes in how you want your child to go home or any change in emergency contact information as soon as possible.
Road closures can be verified by calling Travis County Road Closure Hotline at (512) 854-4500.

Random Student Drug Testing Information
Lago Vista ISD has a vital interest in maintaining a positive learning environment that is safe and healthy for all students. To fulfill that purpose, the District designed a random drug testing program as a positive, proactive approach to promote a drug free student body. The program is academically non-punitive. However, it is designed to teach self-responsibility and that there are consequences for misbehavior. All students in grades 7-12 who choose to participate in school-sponsored extracurricular activities must participate in the random drug testing program. To access forms and information on this policy, please visit the Random Student Drug Testing Program page.

Each campus at LVISD may choose to produce an annual yearbook. At the middle school and high school, students are given the opportunity to plan and produce the yearbook while exploring the world of print and visual media. They will become familiar with photography, page layout, design and captions. Additionally, students will learn about what it means to build a respectful, responsible and safe school community through discussion and project based learning opportunities.
At the elementary campus, the PTO gathers and produces the a yearbook.
