Back To School Traffic, Transportation & Safety

Students with Lake Travis ISD returned to class on Tuesday, Aug. 16. Here is some important information to keep in mind as the school year continues: 

TRAFFIC

Please be aware that there will be continued increased traffic and potentially significant delays in the morning and late afternoon hours, especially along RM 620 near LT High School to the South and Hudson Bend Middle School to the North of Lakeway. If dropping off or picking up at the middle school, please do not block traffic on RM 620. There will also be potential delays up to around 10 minutes along Lohmans Crossing Road near Lakeway Elementary School during morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up hours. Also, for those picking up at Rough Hollow Elementary School, please do not park on Bee Creek Road. Instead, move to the shoulder if waiting to pick-up your child at that location to allow for other traffic and emergency vehicles to pass. Lakeway police will continue to increase enforcement in school zones. Please keep within posted speed limits, and school zone speed limits when those zones are active. Also, keep an extra eye out for children along the sides of the road who could quickly try to cross out into traffic with little notice.

BUS TRANSPORTATION & STAFFING

Even after implementing aggressive recruitment efforts and providing targeted increases in compensation (starting salary of $23/hr.), a bus driver shortage continues with the district. LTISD implemented additional changes to their transportation services the beginning of the school year. CLICK HERE for important details on those changes. LTISD continues hiring for bus drivers. CLICK HERE for more information on those job opportunities. The City of Lakeway is also hiring for a school crossing guard at this time. CLICK HERE to connect to the City's employment page. 

SCHOOL SAFETY

The school district has a close partnership with local first responders, including the Lakeway Police Department. A joint active shooter training exercise with Lakeway police, LTISD police, and other area first responders took place a few weeks ago at Bee Cave Middle School in preparation for the upcoming school year. The area agencies will continue working together to ensure a safe school year for students, staff and the community. CLICK HERE to read more about safety and security from LTISD. The school district also offers a Cavs Who Care Tip Line, which provides an easy and confidential way for students and parents to report bullying, harassment or other personal crisis. It allows an individual to post anonymous tips as well. CLICK HERE for more details on that program and to connect with that form.
