Remote and Continuing Learning

During modified business operations, Lamar CISD remains committed to our students' education and success.

We realize no amount of remote education can replace the in-person care and instruction Lamar CISD teachers provide, but our goal is to minimize the spread of COVID-19 while providing continuity for our students.

Until May 1, 2020, Lamar CISD will be providing students with remote and continued learning opportunities. We understand that not every family has access to the internet or a smart device (computer, laptop, smart phone, iPad, etc.). We are prepared to work with families that need additional support. If your family needs assistance accessing these resources, please contact your campus principal by email.

Internet Access

The Texas Education Agency has shared information on free and/or reduced cost internet access for families in response to COVID-19. Lamar CISD is providing this information as a community resource and does not endorse any corporate provider.

In response to COVID-19, all four Texas Cable Association members have pledged to not cut off broadband or telephone service to any customers, even those unable to pay their bills; waive late fees incurred because of their economic circumstances related to the coronavirus pandemic; and open their Wi-Fi hotspots to all. Find more information here.

Cable providers have also made the following commitments:

  • Altice USA, which provides Suddenlink services
    For households with K-12 and/or college students who may be displaced due to school closures and who do not currently have home internet access, Altice USA is offering its Altice Advantage 30 Mbps broadband solution free for 60 days to new customer households within their footprint.

  • Comcast, which provides Xfinity services
    Comcast is pausing its data plans for 60 days, giving all customers unlimited data for no additional charge.

That increase will go into effect for no additional fee and it will become the new base speed for the program going forward. Find more information here.

This program will be solely for the pick-up of meals, and meals will not be consumed on-site. We encourage families to continue to be proactive in reducing the risk of COVID-19 by not congregating at the school site and utilizing social distancing once meals have been distributed. Individuals will not be permitted to enter any campus. 

All food will be distributed near the bus ramp at all locations.
