This is a regular update from Leander ISD on our response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. This is an active and ongoing situation. For the most up-to-date information, please visit our COVID-19 webpage.
District evaluating next steps during shelter-in-place order
Travis and Williamson counties directed residents to shelter in place through April 13. As a reminder, all LISD buildings and facilities are closed through April 5. This includes athletic fields and playgrounds. We are evaluating the situation and expect to make a determination about what happens past April 5 by the end of the week. At that time, we will notify all of students, staff, and families.
Foodservice reminder during shelter-in-place directive
Foodservice is a key component of our support to students as we work during the global, coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19). As a provider of essential services, LISD and neighboring districts will continue to provide meals to students during the shelter-in-place directive from Travis and Williamson counties.
From 11:30 a.m.–1:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, any student can visit one of four locations to pick up a hot lunch and a breakfast meal for the next morning at the curbside or drive-thru pick-up service at the following locations:
- Bagdad Elementary School,
- Reed Elementary School,
- River Place Elementary School, and
- Running Brushy Middle School.
To receive food, we will not require proof of enrollment. TDA guidelines do require a student to be present to pick up food. We are asking families to use the Nutrislice web or mobile application, when possible, to help us efficiently provide for those in need.
