Super School Visit
Four Points Middle School
Voice. Choice. Engagement: it soars through the Falcon’s Nest into the hallways and lands in the classrooms! What a flight for LISD Board of Trustees President Trish Bode who sees for herself learning is happening at Four Points Middle School. Connections are happening.
Put your dancing shoes on! Teachers are movin’ and groovin’ at Plain Elementary, plugging away at filling spots during quarantines. Students aren’t missing a beat! Superintendent Bruce Gearing, Ed.D. witnesses how that can-do spirit is thriving among the Pride.
Equity and Diversity Listening Sessions Continue through March
Hundreds of parents, teachers, staff, and community members have joined the conversation about equity, diversity, and inclusion in LISD. Register for our next listening session on Friday and stay tuned for more dates (and new times to accommodate our hard-working families) as we continue this important discussion. You can also Join the LISD Equity and Diversity discussion group on Remind!

School Quality Survey Deadline Extended
The 2021 School Quality Survey has been extended to March 28. Help us make our schools work for you and your family! Take the survey to share feedback about student and academic support, school leadership, safety, family involvement, and more. All responses are strictly confidential.
Bad Weather Make-Up Day
April 12 will be a regular school day to make up for the snow day on Jan. 11. Students need the minutes and staff contracts require employees to make up the time, therefore, we will use the bad weather makeup day allocated in our calendar. For our secondary students, this will be an A day.
