Our Commitment to Protect

  • We are saddened by news of tragic school shootings. Our prayers for comfort go out to the families and community who have lost precious loved ones. 

    No one can predict when or where tragedy will strike, but we want our community to know that Lytle ISD leadership and staff put precautions and security measures in place with somber resolve to keep our children safe.

    • Our campus crisis teams attend trainings with the Texas School Safety Center several times each year to keep us focused on the threats that all schools may face.
    • A Medina County sheriff deputy works full time with the district, providing a strong network of law enforcement contacts and emergency service professionals throughout the area.
    • A Lytle ISD School Safety Coordinator has recently been added as full-time staff.
    • Regular emergency drills prepare staff and students for potential crisis situations.
    • Our Safe2SpeakUP app is in the hands of staff, students, and parents providing 24X7 reporting of emergencies, bullying incidents, or other student safety concerns.
    • Security systems at each campus keep exterior doors locked until visitors are screened. Campus perimeter cameras, and interior cameras in each building are in use around the clock.

    Headlines delivering unimaginable news of school tragedies seem to just keep coming, that is why we must continuously improve. We welcome our community’s ideas to enhance security at our campuses. Feel free to contact Superintendent Michelle Smith or campus principals -- all are ready to listen and discuss your ideas.

  • 4-20-2021 Columbine Anniversary

    Today marks the 22nd anniversary of the Columbine High School shooting. Two Seniors killed 12 students and 1 teacher. In addition to the shootings, two large bombs were placed in the cafeteria, their cars in the parking lot were made into bombs, and at a location away from school, two more bombs were set up as diversions. Fortunately, only one of the 6 bombs partially went off. This mass incident, and subsequent response, helped shape the way we now view school safety and security.

  • 4-17-2018 Staff’s Quick Action, Expertise and AED Save Teacher’s Life

    Junior High teacher, Mrs. Mary Woodruff began to feel very bad during the school day on March 22, 2018. She sought assistance from Nurse Belinda Soto in the High School Nurse’s clinic. Mr. William Cross noticed the potential problem and came in to assist. As Mrs. Woodruff’s condition worsened, Nurse Soto and Mr. Cross made a couple quick radio and phone calls that resulted in Medina County Sheriff Deputy Tim Finnerty, Atascosa County Sheriff Deputy Daniel Hernandez, and Nurse Juanita Black arriving to help. Mrs. Woodruff declined to the point of losing consciousness and the Automatic Electronic Defibrillator (AED) available in the Nurse’s clinic was attached and powered on to monitor Mrs. Woodruff's heart activity, and dictate the nurses’ actions.
