Lake Dallas ISD is excited for the return of students and staff for the 2020-21 school year! Because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, families will have the option to either send their students back to school or choose virtual learning. Our school district believes the traditional, face-to-face environment is the best scenario for most students, but we also understand that some students or their family members have challenges or concerns that make virtual learning a better option.
On this webpage, you will find information regarding our procedures for the upcoming school year as well as related documents and information. Our district and school leaders have worked to create health and safety protocols to combat COVID-19 and its potential spread. These protocols are based on guidance from the Texas Education Agency and leading health officials and are subject to change pending new guidelines or requirements.
Decisions regarding health procedures will follow guidance from the state, which determines recommendations based on the most current science with input from: Governor Greg Abbott’s Coronavirus Medical Advisory Team, the Governor’s Strike Force to Reopen Texas, Texas school system leaders, ongoing global analysis of school operational practices, ongoing global analysis of research on viral spread in schools, and the latest peer-reviewed viral research studies.
Families will soon receive instructions on how to opt into virtual learning for their students if they so choose. Students whose families do not opt into remote learning will be automatically entered into the traditional, in-person environment.
