The Lovejoy ISD Transportation Staff are working diligently to complete bus routes for the 2017-2018 school year. All routes are expected to be completed and available by noon on August 15, 2017. After 12:00 PM on August 15th, you may look up your bus number and bus stop times, by your physical street address at the following link: Lovejoy ISD Bus Route Finder
Please be reminded, once routes have been updated and posted on August 15th, pickup and drop-off times are estimates. After the first two-weeks of school, ridership and traffic patterns will start to normalize.
Compiling a list of common items needed for Lovejoy High School is a bit difficult considering the diversity of classes that a typical student can take. Knowing that many of you may want to shop for school supplies before you receive the complete list from teachers on the 1st day of school, we invite you to click SUPPLIES to consult a spreadsheet that details what items are needed for each department. Please note that there are 5 tabs, one for each of the core subjects: English, Math, Science, Social Studies, and LOTE.
