Dear Lovejoy Families,

The halls and Zooms are filled with holiday cheer celebrating that the end of the first semester is here. This semester the Leopards have worked hard, persevered, all while growing their minds and hearts. I am incredibly proud of our students, teachers, and staff.

I encourage all of you to tune into the Fine Arts Festival tonight to see a glimpse of LES Music and Art in Action plus an overview of the K-12 Fine Arts Experience in Lovejoy ISD. It is a definite "must-see" event! More information below!

In an effort to keep communication flowing over the holiday break, we are requesting that parents submit a form by clicking the link below in the event that their student is either symptomatic with COVID-19 symptoms, had close contact exposure to a person with COVID-19, or lab-confirmed positive for COVID-19. Campus administration will follow-up with families regarding the student’s return to learning. If you need immediate assistance over break regarding COVID, please contact Sancy Fuller at or by phone at 903-815-5028.
On behalf of the Lovejoy Elementary staff, we would like to thank you for sharing your precious children with us each and every day. It is an honor and privilege to teach your child and play a small role in their lives. We hope that you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! May these next two weeks be filled with creating life long memories with your family. Take Care & Be Safe! As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
All My Best,

Athletic Tickets
There has been some confusion in regards to ticket sales, as in the past all students and staff have been allowed in free to all athletic contests (with school ID).  Due to UIL covid-19 attendance capacity limitation regulations we are forced to charge for entrance to all athletic contests for all staff and students. The tickets sales assist the athletic department in keeping with the capacity limitations required of us. If you have questions, please contact the Lovejoy Athletic Office.
Need Technology Help?
If you are experiencing any issues with your technology or need assistance, please call the Technology Help Desk.
