We are getting ready to welcome students back for another exciting school year Thursday, Aug. 16. Please make sure you log on to txConnect to update your student’s contact information and health information. Some friendly reminders are below:


2018–19 District Calendar

The complete district calendar includes information on student and teacher holidays, bad weather makeup days, testing dates, early release dates and more. Click here to view the 2018–19 district calendar.


Please note: Any student that is not active on the first day of school will be withdrawn at the end of the day. After that, parents will need to accompany their student to their school registrar’s office the first day they are enrolled so that they can be activated in the system, but they will not have to go through the entire enrollment process. Every effort will be made to maintain the student’s preferred schedule.


txConnect

Leander ISD uses txConnect, a web portal, to give parents the ability to view their child's grades, assignments (grades 4–12), attendance, immunizations, STAAR/EOC scores and discipline information online. Parents must complete a two-step process to create a new txConnect account. Click here for more information.


Student Code of Conduct and Dress Code

The Student Code of Conduct and dress code are available on the district website. The Student and Parent handbooks will be finalized shortly.


Immunization Info

Immunization requirements for the 2018–19 school year are available on the LISD website. To avoid crowded waiting rooms and long waits, families may visit one of the public health clinics or their family physician to schedule an appointment. For more information on immunization requirements, click here.


School Visitor Info

Leander ISD upgraded our visitor security system over the summer. All visitors will need to have their ID scanned the first time they visit a campus. After that, ID scans will not be necessary, but visitors should always have their ID with them. Please be patient the first few weeks of school as receptionists scan each visitor into the system.

Bus Route Information

Leander ISD parents can enter their home address into Infofinderi to look up their child's bus number, pick-up/drop-off times and bus stop locations for the coming school year. Bus routes are subject to change, so LISD parents are strongly encouraged to confirm their child's bus information again the week prior to the start of school.


Note: Special Education student bus routes are not on Infofinderi, but parents will receive a separate phone call from the Transportation Dept. with bus information.


First Day Photos

Share your first day photos with LISD by submitting them at this link! Unfortunately, we cannot accept photo submissions on Facebook this year.
