After a shelter-in-place order was issued by Travis County on March 24, Lake Travis ISD extended the closure of all school facilities until midnight April 13 in a continued effort to slow the spread of COVID-19.

According to Travis County’s order, educational entities, such as school districts, may continue to provide essential services during shelter-in-place. Superintendent Brad Lancaster stated in a letter March 25. This includes mobile meals and other critical functions.

Since March 23, LTISD has been distributing free meals for children up to 18 years old via drive-thru centers established at Bee Cave, Hudson Bend and Lake Travis middle schools.

Packaged breakfast and lunch are available for pickup Mon.-Fri. 8:30 a.m.-10:30 a.m. at each middle school’s bus drop-off location.

“We will continue to make every effort possible to assist our families during this unusual time,” Lancaster said. “I ask for your continued patience, flexibility and support during the next couple of weeks.”

Students are scheduled to begin remote learning through a virtual system called Schoology on March 26.
