LDHS Safe Sports School

Lake Dallas High School has earned the Safe Sports School 1st Team designation for outstanding support and protection of its student-athletes, a top honor in the athletic training field.

The award, presented by the National Athletic Trainers’ Association, grants Lake Dallas High School with the designation for a three-year period, expiring in April 2024. This marks the third consecutive three-year designation period that Lake Dallas High School has received the honor.

To earn the award, school training programs must meet a stringent standard of 10 requirements relating to best practices in athletic training. Examples of some of those requirements include emergency action plan creation, injury and illness prevention strategies, proper maintenance of athletic equipment, designated athletic training areas to treat injuries, and more.

The Lake Dallas High School athletic training program is led by Debby Winder, head athletic trainer, and Marissa Parker, athletic trainer. A team of student trainers additionally supports every athletic team.

Lake Dallas ISD open-enrollment transfer application for 2021-22 closes May 31

Lake Dallas ISD’s open-enrollment transfer application for both resident and non-resident students is now open for the 2021-22 school year. Transfers are considered on a case-by-case basis and require district approval.

Criteria for approval includes academic history, discipline, attendance and passing all sections of the most recent STAAR exams (or other recognized test if STAAR is not available). Transfers are considered from kindergarten to 12th grade and are based on campus capacity, with the number of openings for transfer students limited by this capacity. All transfers are considered on a first-come, first-served basis.

Currently, there is no tuition fee for out-of-district transfers, though this waiver is reviewed each year. All students who live outside a campus attendance boundary must reapply and qualify each year, even if they have previously been granted transfer status.
