August 2019 - IMPORTANT NOTICE
Based on the nature of renovation work, labor challenges and long-lead times for some key materials in the booming Texas construction economy, LLCI has informed the District that all construction work will not be finished when school begins on August 19, 2019. Each site will have temporary conditions when staff and students return. Information about temporary conditions and their effect, if any, on drop-off and pickup processes will be communicated by campus staff through campus newsletters or email.

The district also will be initiating a new visitor process for these eight schools upon completion of the renovations of the controlled entry access vestibules. This will include new state-of-the-art equipment to streamline the visitor process.
