Lockout at Primary Thursday, January 23, 2020
This morning there was a lockout at the Primary school during recess. One of the teachers thought she heard what sounded like a gun shot. Our School Resource Officer Banks and Lytle Police responded as children were escorted indoors. Staff and students followed training procedures. The investigation determined all was clear and classes resumed to normal within 30 minutes.
Student safety is always our top priority. Thank you for your continued support.
Pirate LookOut! Program Needs Volunteers to Add a Layer of Safety Against the Suspicious and Unwelcome Visitor (pictured)
We are asking parents and community members to help in looking out for this person who has been told to stay off all Lytle ISD school property. See our Safe at School page for details on how to volunteer for the Lytle Pirate LookOut! Program.
An incident occurred at the High School Tuesday, Jan. 21 and Lytle Police Department advised that all Lytle staff be aware and looking out for an African American male, 150-160 lbs., 5'10", with a short beard and thin mustache, possibly dressed in red attire or with a red bandana on his head. He is driving a white 4-door Chevy with no license plates, only a paper (temporary) plate in the back rear. We know he is from the San Antonio area and has made contact with one of our female students. When asked to leave campus, he displayed concerning behavior. If you see or suspect this person is on campus, do not approach him. Immediately call our School Resource Officers, Kaitlyn Banks, 210-478-0055.
Lytle Police Department, Atascosa and Medina County Sheriffs Offices are fully aware of the situation and are providing additional support. Local law enforcement, our School Resource Officer and School Safety Coordinator are currently working to investigate this individual to ensure he does NOT COME BACK on school grounds, as directed by high school administrators.
We want our community to know that Lytle ISD leadership and staff put many precautions and security measures in place with somber resolve to keep our children safe.
-Our campus crisis teams attend training sessions with the Texas School Safety Center several times each year to keep us focused on the threats that all schools may face.

-A Lytle ISD School Safety Coordinator has recently been added as full-time staff.

-Our Safe2SpeakUP app is in the hands of staff, students, and parents providing 24X7 reporting of emergencies, bullying incidents, or other student safety concerns.

The 2020 High School Powerlifting season began the first weekend of the new year on January 4th, 2020. While most students around the great state of Texas were lazing around, sleeping in, eating too much and watching bowl games on television, your powerlifters were getting up early, coming in to stretch, get cardio work in and lift. On Saturday morning, they boarded the bus at 05:10am and headed out to get their 2020 competition year started. To date, they have successfully competed in two meets, Natalia and SW Legacy. Our lifters will wake up early, once again, this coming Saturday to load up and to pit their wits and ability against their competitors at Randolph Field High School where family and friends may come to show their support for our young student-athletes. Bars loaded at 9am & competition begins!
The girls beat the Natalia Mustangs last night, Janurary21st, 34-22 and it always feels good to beat the team in blue. We have won the last two games by winning the 3rd quarter and outscoring our opponents. Noelia Medina had 16 points to lead the team, Kiara Nixon put in 12 and Eleni Keith had 4. Our defensive effort needs to be better as we travel to Dilley on Friday to finish the first round of District play. The girls move to 3-1. Thank you to everyone that came out to support the basketball teams last night it was a great crowd and atmosphere. Go Pirates!!!
Last night, January 21st, the JV boys played host to rival Natalia for our second District game of the season. As usual we came out pressing to set the tone for the game and we cruised to an 80- 22 victory. The Pirates were led in scoring by Sophomores Caleb Wood (18 points) and Damien Garcia (13 points). Our next game is Friday at Dilley.
This past Friday, Januray 17th, the boys opened up District play for the 2019-2020 season vs the Cotulla Cowboys. Although 20 games into the season plagued by injuries, this would be the first game where every player was available to play and man did it show. The Pirates played fast and pressed all night long. The pressure defense was led by Senior Jaron Calderon with 6 steals and 5 deflections on ball with Junior Mark Cantu having 5 steals and 8 deflections of his own. The Pirates fast tempo offense was led by Senior Captain John Martinez who finished with 20 points and 12 rebounds with the help from Mr. 1000 himself, Robert Ibarra adding 14 points, 4 steals, and 4 rebounds for a complete game. The Pirates won 76-53 over the Cowboys.
The girls bounced back Friday, January 17th, and picked up a good win on the road at Cotulla by the score of 38-36. It was intense the last 30 seconds when the buzzard went off, I looked at Coach Mason and said I’m sweating like I played in the game. Free throws are just not working for us this year, we were 8/24 from the line we told the girls if we would of just made half of them we would of won big. Leading the way was Autumn Frias with 15 points and she made a clutch free throw in the final minutes. Go Pirates!!!!
