ABSENCES

Students need to come to school and attend the full day unless they have fever, communicable disease or family emergency. A note explaining any absence is required upon the student’s return to school.
 

TRANSPORTATION INFORMATION 

You must register them on line through the LTISD transportation department via your TXConnect Account. Use Bus finder for bus routes and estimated morning/afternoon pick-up times.  Call 512-533-6070 for more information. 
 
Any student K-2nd grade will not be allowed to depart bus without a parent or guardian or designated person at the bus stop.
Smart Tag bus safety tracking system launched in February 2016. 
 
All bus riders use the Smart Tag bus safety tracking system that launched in February 2016. Parents may sign up for bus alerts through Smart Tag.  
 
 
The School Dismissal Manager system must be used to make any changes in your student(s) transportation plans.  Make all changes by 1:45 PM. All changes in transportation must be documented in the School Dismissal Manager system.  The teacher will not receive notification of the change if it is not entered into the SDM system before 1:45 PM. If you do not have a login, please contact Lisa Hanson. Email Lisa.
 

LUNCH INFORMATION

Both Breakfast and lunch are provided in all our campus cafes. Menus are designed to meet recommendations and requirements of the United States Department of Agriculture’s National School Lunch and Breakfast Program.  See our menu.
 
Student lunches (including milk) will be at least $2.70. The price of lunches is determined by the first day of each school year.  Milk and juice are for sale for students who bring their lunches.  The Federal Lunch Program forms are available online or in the school office.   It is suggested that all students have an account with a few days credit on it in case lunches or money are misplaced or forgotten.  You may set up an account online at  www.Myschoolbucks.com. Prior balances from other LT schools are migrated.
 

SPECIALS SCHEDULE (GREEN AND WHITE DAYS) 

"Specials" refers to PE, Art and Music. All classes go to one "special" each school day with PE being every other day alternating with Art and Music. Students must wear tennis shoes in order to participate in PE, therefore, the Green and White days on the LWE Parent Calendar allow you to identify which days your student has PE vs Art/Music. Each class has PE on either Green or White days.
   

EXTENDED CARE

Extended Care is in session each school day. The hours are 3:00 PM -6:00 PM. A shorter program, where students are picked up by 4:30 PM, is also available. Click for more information.   All registration is done on line.
  

SCHOOL COMMUNICATION

Each teacher uses schoology with helpful information about your child’s schedule, teacher bio, expectations and learning resources. If new to schoology, please read the Schoology Information & Parent Setup Instructions - CLICK HERE
