Campuses, students prepare for ‘back-to-school’
By LPR Staff
Lockhart Independent School District is preparing for the coming school year in a number of ways, including helping parents follow all the steps to easily register their children for school.
All students new to the Lockhart Independent School District must register with the Lockhart ISD Central Office before enrolling
at a specific campus. Central Office is located at 105 S. Colorado (Highway 183 between San Antonio and Market Streets).
Central Office is open from 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Upon their registration at Central Office, students will receive their campus assignments.
To register a student for enrollment, parents or guardians must have available: the student’s birth certificate; the student’s shot records; the student’s Social Security Card; proof of residency; and parent or guardian’s photo identification.
Under State law, children may not be enrolled in school unless their vaccinations are up to date. See the First-Lockhart National Bank Community Calendar on Page 2A of today’s Post-Register for information on immunization clinics for area students.
Pre-K and Kindergarten registration will be held 1 -3 p.m. only on Aug. 6 – 15 at Carver Kindergarten at 371 Carver Street in Lockhart. See Page 2A of today’s Post-Register for a full list of documentation needed for Kindergarten and Pre-kindergarten registration.
When LISD elementary students register at Central Office, they will be assigned to one of the district’s four elementary campuses. The parents must then visit that campus to complete registration and emergency-contact paperwork. Most elementary campuses will host “Meet and Greet” events prior to the start of school on Aug. 25 to allow parents to meet their children’s teachers. For information on these events, contact your campus. A full list of school contacts is available on Page 5B of today’s Post-Register.
