Transportation, SMART Tag Update for First Day of School

Bus route information for your student(s) can be found on the LISD Transportation website. All bus-eligible students will be able to ride the bus to and from school tomorrow. 

LISD is utilizing the SMART Tag system this year and we need your help. In order to help promote student safety and security and to keep parents more informed, we need all bus eligible families to register on the SMART Tag Parent Portal so that you can receive text message notifications before the bus arrives at your child’s bus stop. While on the bus, the Parent Portal also provides a live map to see the bus’ location in near real time.

Delays can be expected these first few days of school and we thank you for your patience during this time. If you have questions, please contact your campus directly or the Transportation Dispatch Center at 512-570-0704.

Changes in Meal Service for 2022-23 School Year

Beginning this 2022-23 school year, meals for Leander ISD students will be provided by Sodexo, a food-services provider committed to improving the quality of life of students within districts they serve through quality food services.

All students who qualify for free and reduced-price (F&R) meals during the 2022-23 school year will receive breakfast and lunch at no cost. Due to a partnership with USDA, reduced-price meals will be free for the 2022-23 school year.

For elementary students who do not qualify for F&R meals, prices are remaining the same as they were in 2020 (before COVID-19). The cost of breakfast is $1.50 and lunch is $2.90. For secondary students, the cost of breakfast is $1.75 and lunch is $3.15.

Parents who would like to apply to find out if they are eligible for F&R meals for their children can visit our Child Nutrition Services website for more information.
