Lago Vista ISD Temporary Remote ConferencingSeptember 6, 2021
As you may be aware, Lago Vista ISD is seeing an elevated number of positive student and staff cases of COVID-19 on the high school campus. The District is also experiencing a limited number of available substitute teachers across the District and is unable to ensure adequate classroom coverage in the coming days. As a result, all Lago Vista High School students will shift to a temporary period of remote conferencing support beginning Wednesday, September 8 through Friday, September 10. All regularly scheduled extra-curricular activities at Lago Vista High School are temporarily suspended and will resume on Monday, September 13.
Note: This announcement does NOT impact instructional settings or extracurricular activities at Lago Vista Middle School, Lago Vista Intermediate School, or Lago Vista Elementary School.
Remote conferencing support is a short-term setting that is generally only available to students who are either identified as positive for COVID-19 or close contacts. Students participating in remote conferencing are provided with four hours of synchronous support per day, which includes one required daily attendance meeting. TEA will only allow a student to participate in remote conferencing for twenty days over the course of the 2021-2022 school year. That said, all students at Lago Vista High School will be placed into a three-day period remote conferencing on September 8-10.
Throughout this temporary period of remote conferencing support, all Lago Vista High School students will be expected to follow an early release bell schedule remotely at home and to meet remotely with their classes. Additional information will be provided by the campus.
Lago Vista ISD expects to resume normal high school operations beginning on Monday, September 13, 2021.
Please know that we are moving to remote conferencing for Lago Vista High School students out of necessity. Our leadership team continues to meet and is working diligently to determine additional ways to stay ahead of the COVID-19 virus in order to provide you and your children the best and safest educational setting we can. It is our hope that we can work together to continue to mitigate the spread of this virus in order to provide uninterrupted learning opportunities for our students and to keep our schools open.
