Leander ISD's Vision is that "Students will exit our system with the same passion for learning they had when they entered, without economics determining success. Every Option Open."

Mosquito season is right around the corner. Mosquito bites may cause illness. Many people who get a mosquito disease will not feel sick, but some cases can cause serious illness or death. Children, elderly and those with certain health conditions may be at a higher risk of getting sick if they become infected. Protect yourself, your family and our community from mosquitoes with the 3-Ds:
Defend use an EPA-approved insect repellant;
Dress dress in long sleeves and pants when outdoors, especially at dawn and dusk;
Drain drain standing water around your home, so mosquitoes don¹t have a place to breed.

LISD Reminds Families that Missing School Matters
Student absenteeism is a concern for school districts statewide, including LISD. It is estimated that Central Texas students are absent 2.4 million days of school each year. Students who attend school regularly are more likely to graduate and find good jobs. In fact, a high school graduate makes, on average, a million dollars more than a dropout over a lifetime. All absences, whether excused or unexcused, are a lost opportunity to learn. Families can help reinforce the value of education by keeping a few things in mind:
- Don’t make others sick. If your child is ill, he or she should stay home. Don’t let your child fall behind when he or she misses school. Ask the teacher for assignments.
- Try to schedule appointments when they are least disruptive to learning.
- If your child must miss school for a medical appointment, get a note from his or her doctor.
- Use the LISD calendar, available at www.leanderisd.org, to plan trips and vacations to line up with school holidays.
- Remember that every absence is a lost opportunity to learn.
- Absences cost your child’s school about $40 per day (per absent student) in state funding.
- Make school a family priority.
For safety and to ensure timely communication to teachers and staff involved in afternoon dismissal, please make all changes to your child's normal method of transportation in writing. You may send a note with your child to school, or you may click the following link to change his/her method of transportation.
Please send changes prior to 1:30 p.m. on the effective date of the change. Thank you!
You are welcome to visit and eat lunch with your child at his/her regular table. You may choose to sit with your child at a separate table; however, only your child may accompany you to that table. Your child's classmates must remain at their regular class' table.
