London ISD Welcomes Students Back to School on Wednesday

While most of the country suspended in-person learning due to COVID-19 last year, London ISD continued in-person learning with most of the student population on-site during most of the school year. “Our due diligence in combining health and safety protocols with our learning environment created a win-win for London ISD,” said Dr. Judi Whitis, Superintendent of Schools. “Our students outpaced both regional, and state STAAR results in many categories. I couldn’t be more proud of how our teachers, staff, and students navigated the challenges of the pandemic,” added Dr. Whitis.

LISD is starting the school year with many of the same health and safety protocols from last year remaining in effect. The hope is to minimize any cases of COVID-19, variants, or other viruses by being proactive with protection measures. Some of the measures include electronic temperature readings at school entrances, hand sanitizing stations, district-provided cleaning supplies for teachers, and deep cleaning in the event of illness. “There will most certainly be situations that necessitate changing protocols and adapting as the virus continues to be a threat in our community,” added Dr. Whitis.
