Due to continued uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Lake Travis ISD students attending the academic summer school session will do so through an online platform, according to a letter from Superintendent Brad Lancaster on May 7.

Additionally, school-run recreational and child care programs will be suspended until June 30, with refunds being processed for those previously enrolled.

“We acknowledge the hardship this places on parents to find other child care services,” Lancaster wrote. “We also recognize the impact on our many instructors and coaches who earn additional income through our summer programs.”

Until then, the district will be closely monitoring the situation and will determine whether programs can resume in July.

“We will assess whether or not our district can safely and feasibly offer some level of recreational programming in July,” Lancaster wrote, adding the all updates will be communicated with the community.



All questions and concerns should be directed at campus principals or the district’s office of community programs.
