    Reminder About Attire, Behavior, and Attendance Expectations for Students

    • With warmer weather upon us, we want to take a moment to remind everyone of the importance of maintaining a safe and conducive learning environment at Lake Travis ISD.

    • While we embrace the joy of spring, let's also ensure that our enthusiasm is channeled in ways that enhance, rather than disrupt, our academic pursuits.

    • Each of our campus principals sent a letter to parents last week detailing attire, behavior, and attendance expectations for students as we approach the end of the year.

    • The letter is available on the LTISD website under “Latest News.”
