Back to School Fair Supply Drive

Marcus High School needs your help! Lewisville ISD will be hosting their Annual Back to School Fair on August 5th, 2017. For the event to be a success, schools around the district will be donating new supplies.

Supplies will be used to stuff Kindergarten – 12th grade backpacks that will be provided to registered students at the Back to School Fair.

Here is how you can help:

Marcus HS – one package of 3×5 index cards
The cards can be deposited in the collection box at the front of the building. If you would rather donate a $1.00 or make a monetary donation, the money collected will be used to purchase supplies.
Marcus 9 – lined filler paper.
These items can be dropped off in to Marcus 9 office.

Any donation is greatly appreciated.

For more information and how you can volunteer to help:

Thank you in advance for your support!

Creepy Clowns

An LISD Parent Notice – October 2016


Dear Lewisville ISD Parents,

You may have seen reports in the news and on social media regarding rumors of “creepy clowns” making threats against school districts nationwide. You can be sure we will investigate any and all incidents that are brought to our attention. If any of our campuses are impacted by a credible situation and not simply rumors, that campus will communicate directly with parents.

As always, the safety and security of our students is our top priority. While it has not been necessary to make any operational changes in Lewisville ISD schools as a result of these incidents, we want to assure you we are closely monitoring this concerning trend.

If you or your child observes any suspicious behavior, please report it immediately to your local police department, or to your campus administrators.

Whether they are made against an individual or an entire school, such threats are a serious matter. Several people nationally have been arrested in recent weeks for making false clown threats and they face serious consequences. Threatening schools is a criminal matter, and the police and our district take these situations very seriously.

Thank you for your continued support of Lewisville ISD schools.

Lewisville ISD

Estimados padres de Lewisville ISD,

Es posible que haya visto reportajes en los noticieros y en las redes sociales con respecto a rumores sobre “payasos espantosos” amenazando a los distritos escolares de todo el país. Puede estar seguro que investigaremos cualquier y todos los incidentes que sean traídos a nuestra atención.  Si alguno de nuestros planteles es impactado por una situación creíble y no por simples rumores, esa escuela se comunicará directamente con los padres.

Como siempre, la seguridad de nuestros estudiantes es nuestra máxima prioridad. Aunque no ha sido necesario hacer ningún cambio operacional en las escuelas de Lewisville ISD como resultado de estos incidentes,  queremos asegurarles que estamos vigilando de cerca esta tendencia.

Si usted o su hijo observa cualquier comportamiento sospechoso, por favor, repórtelo inmediatamente a su departamento de policía local o a los administradores de la escuela.

Ya que estas sean realizadas en contra de una persona o en contra de la escuela completa, tales amenazas son un asunto serio.  Varias personas a nivel nacional han sido arrestadas en las últimas semanas  por hacer amenazas de payaso falsas y enfrentan consecuencias graves. Amenazar una escuela es un asunto criminal y la policía y nuestro distrito toman estas situaciones muy seriamente.

Gracias por su continuo apoyo a las escuelas de Lewisville ISD.
