• COMMUNICATIONS & COMMUNITY RELATIONS
    Community health data continues to change in our Liberty Hill ISD community, and we are continuously monitoring this information and adjusting our plans accordingly. We are sharing these preliminary plans with the understanding that as we get closer to August 20, 2020, plans could change based on conditions.
Communications
  • Communicating uncertainty is challenging but possible. 

    As we navigate this global health emergency, flexibility is key to our success. Communicating ever-changing recommendations, mandates, and orders to our stakeholders will add a layer of challenge that requires consistent messaging, clear action statements, and acknowledgment of the unknown. While challenging, we are committed to providing resources and share what we know.  Helping families, staff, board members, and the community feels "in the know" to provide relief in these uncertain times.  

    Key Points to Remember: 

    • We’re in this together. 

    • Our goal is to maintain timely, accurate, and clear two-way communication with our school family and community. 

    • You can depend on our district to provide accurate information. You can find it on our website and social media channels: www.libertyhill.txed.net  

    • We are relying on health and safety experts and will keep you informed about what we know when we know it. 

    • We are planning for a return to school with health and safety as a top priority. 

    • We will follow all required health and safety protocols.

     • The State, including the Legislature, the Governor’s office, and the Texas Education Agency, will also provide some requirements and recommendations on how we work with families, students and staff in an educational setting.

    • Our schools are working every day, using a variety of strategies and resources, to educate all children. 

     • Our schools are working for the lifelong success of Texas’s children. 

  • LHISD Communications Department will implement a crisis communication plan during this global health emergency that will foster a community that is well-informed and engaged, focusing on celebrating the successes and milestones with a positive team mindset for the uncertain future.
