The Lampasas Independent School District has released its 2020-2021 School Supply List. Note: Some teachers may request additional items, and some items may need to be replenished during the school year.

Lampasas ISD released three documents July 20, providing its most recent plans for the upcoming school year, slated to begin August 10. Superintendent Dr. Chane Rascoe said state, local, and and district health authorities helped develop the plans, but they will likely change as the year progresses.
