NEW!!!! From Mrs. Hart
The book fair was rocking and rolling last week! The kids, teachers, and volunteers were giddy with excitement. We more than doubled our goal. We sold more than $9,000 which means Hart earns 25% of that total. We will be able to puchase several new books for the library!

Thank you families for creating the eWallets for students to shop. There were some great problem solving, decision making, and math lessons going on - tax is a hard concept to understand for most students!

A HUGE THANK YOU to the volunteers. We could not have done this without you all!

Notes from Nurse Wright
In addition to allergies, we are also seeing a stomach virus that is lasting up to 3-4 days. Not all kids are vomiting or having any fever. The predominant symptoms seem to be stomach cramping, diarrhea, and vomiting. 

If your student has had a recent (with in the past year) vision or hearing exam, please email it to me at allison_wright@lovejoyisd.net and your student will be exempt this year from on campus screenings. A snapshot with your phone of the results works just fine as long as the information is legible.

Thank you for your understanding during this time!

Plans for 2021-2022 School Year

For the 2021- 2022 school year:
  • Masks will not be required, but optional for those who choose to wear
  • All instruction will be face-to-face, LISD will not offer virtual learning
  • Secondary schedules will return to a traditional 8 period day

Please note that our plans to return to normal pre-COVID operations is based on current health conditions.

Changes may be required if guided differently by the Texas Education Agency (TEA), Governor’s Executive order, Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Collin County Health Department or the Department of Texas Health and Human Services hospitalization rates impact local guidance.
Adopt a 2021 Lovejoy Senior Community Project
Brooklyn Lloyd is a junior at LHS who is a part of the Varsity Volleyball Team, Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA), and PALS. For her senior project, she is doing an "Adopt a 2021 Lovejoy Senior" Facebook page where each senior posts a bio about them and a person in our community chooses to "adopt" and spoil them with gifts. As we all know, these seniors have gone through so much with COVID-19 and have missed out on a normal senior year. So, what better way than to show them love than with tangible gifts they can remember forever. As a community, we can make light of this unexpected situation by showering them with our Love and Joy! To be apart of this, you can join our Facebook group page “Adopt a 2021 LOVEJOY Senior” and adopt a senior you feel led to bless. Spread the word and let all the senior parents know about this so they can add their senior's bio so they can get adopted! Also, check it out if you would like to adopt any of the seniors so we don't leave any behind. However, if you do not have Facebook, no problem! Just contact Brooklyn Lloyd at lloyd_brooklyn@lovejoyisd.com and she can help you! Let's show these kids some LOVE!
