A Message from the Principal
 
Lovejoy HS News 08 22 16

Parents and Guardians,  
 
We were very excited to see your students this morning.  Although they may have been dreading the return to school, the staff at LHS has been anxiously awaiting today and the start of the school year.  Students received their updated schedules this morning, and teachers will help throughout the day as students may have questions. 
 
We also celebrated our traditional Senior Walk as underclassmen and teachers lined the courtyard to celebrate our Seniors as they walked through the receiving line and into LHS for their last "first day of school."  It was a great event, and one that is a big part of the Senior experience. 
 
Along with other normal first day events, we will be practicing some of our safety drills today.  The students and staff will be using them as a learning experience and an opportunity to keep our students and school safe.
 
Please take a few minutes to review the information below and familiarize yourself with dates and details about upcoming events.
 
Proud to be a Leopard,

Chris Mayfield
Principal
Lovejoy High School

Lovejoy Events and Activities
 
Students Leaving Campus
In the event that students need to leave campus during the school day and they drive themselves to school, we will need you to send an email to student_signout@lovejoyisd.net . Please include the student's name, the time they need to leave, the reason, and a phone number to be used to contact you. Once we have received the email, we will call you for verification, and the email will provide us with the needed documentation for our records.

Academic Counselors

School Supplies
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: Math, English, Science, Social Studies, and LOTE.
