As always, we thank parents for their patience during this busy time and remind you to please allow enough time to check in to the front office. First time visitors will need to present a picture I.D. Gupton stadium will be open for parking as parking spaces at the school are limited. If a parent wants to take their own student home, please make sure to sign them out at the front office. If someone other than the parent is taking a student home, we will need the parent to either send in a signed note stating the name of the person taking their child home early or a phone call to the front office. Happy holidays!

REGULAR SCHOOL ATTENDANCE IS VERY IMPORTANT!
LISD and Reagan Elementary Remind Families thatMissing School Matters Student absenteeism is a concern for school districts statewide, including LISD. It is estimated that Central Texas students are absent 2.4 million days of school each year. All absences, whether excused or unexcused, are a lost opportunity to learn. Families can help reinforce the value of education by keeping a few things in mind:
Don’t make others sick. If your child is ill, he or she should stay home.
Try to schedule appointments when they are least disruptive to learning.
If your child must miss school for a medical appointment, get a note from his or her doctor.
Use the LISD calendar, available at www.leanderisd.org, to plan trips and vacations to line up with school holidays.
Remember that every absence is a lost opportunity to learn.
Absences cost your child’s school about $40 per day (per absent student) in state funding.
Make school a family priority!
Consider Walking or Biking to School this Fall
Cooler weather is here! Leander ISD and Reagan Elementary are encouraging students and families to consider walking or biking as an option for getting to and from school.
Here are some reasons to support walking and bicycling to school:
It’s fun! Walking or biking can bring a sense of joy and independence.
It promotes healthier habits! The trip to school can help children and adults get the physical activity they need.
It promotes a cleaner environment! Ditching the car and walking or biking to school can reduce traffic congestion and air-polluting emissions.
Community benefits! Walking or biking to school reduces traffic congestion, boosts a sense of community and improves neighborhood connections that benefit the entire school community.
Thank you for doing your part in ensuring the safety of all of our students during morning and afternoon drop off and pick up. Your cooperation is appreciated with driving slowly, in the designated direction and using the crosswalk to cross. Please remember to remain in your cars during drop off and pick up to speed up the process and to maintain student safety. We must emphasize that double parking and/or leaving your car unattended is not allowed. Considerations will be made concerning tardy slips in the event that the car lines are long or the weather is bad in the morning. Please use this videoas guidance for our traffic pattern.
LISD Bus Route Information Available Online Aug. 10
On Aug. 10, Leander ISD parents can enter their home address into Infofinder i, an online tool available on the LISD website, to look up their child’s bus number and pick-up/drop-off times and locations for the coming school year. In an effort to reduce expenses and ensure real-time accuracy, the district does not print and distribute bus route schedules prior to the start of school. Bus routes are subject to change, and so LISD parents are strongly encouraged to confirm their child’s bus information again the week prior to the start of school, Aug. 15-19. For transportation questions, please call 512-570-0700.
