We hope your New Year is off to a safe, healthy start. Here’s important information as we look ahead to a successful semester!


Sleigh the Day!

Central Texas weather was up to snow good! As much as a half-foot of snow fell on some parts of our district, turning the landscape into a winter wonderland. We want to thank our families for sharing their experiences with us. No flakes here, you truly did snow yourselves! We also appreciate your patience and understanding when we make have to make decisions regarding inclement weather. Please know we want to make every effort to keep students and staff safe.

Super School Visits

Our Super School Visits help us feature the tremendous experiences we’re seeing on campuses and in virtual empowered learning. In our latest video, LISD Board Member Anna Smith visited Wiley Middle School, a campus she’s embraced as a parent. This #SuperSchoolVisit shows the Coyote spirit alive in hallways, in classrooms, and in its people. #LISDisHappening

Remind

Not receiving messages sent through Remind? Follow these steps:

  • Log into Remind using the same email address on file in Home Access Center (HAC).
  • Once logged in, click on your name in the top left corner, and select Account Settings and then Notification Preferences.
  • By default, your email address and the phone number on file in Home Access Center should both be listed.
  • On this page, you can select which method(s) in which you’d like to receive messages. More information can be found here.

Not seeing your cell phone on your profile?
A phone number can only be listed on one Remind profile at a time, so it’s possible your phone number is already linked to a Remind account with an email address different from the one listed in HAC. If you’d like to merge these two profiles together, select “Add Device” on the Notifications Preferences page and follow the confirmation prompts from Remind. Click here for additional information.
