A Message from the Principal
 
Lovejoy HS News 08 27 18

P arents and Guardians,

Week One is in the books! I hope you and your student had a good first week, and you are beginning to settle back into your school year routine.  
 
As a school, we are beginning to settle in as well. Students are beginning to memorize their schedules and figure out the fastest way to get to classes. After school traffic for student pickup also typically begins to improve this week as after-school schedules become more predictable. 
 
Please take a few minutes to review the important dates and information below, and let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
 
Sincerely,

Chris Mayfield
Principal
Lovejoy High School

Lovejoy Senior Requests Assistance with Senior Project
A message from Lovejoy Senior, Alexandra Brungardt:
 
"As an incoming senior, I have selected a project that is close to my heart. There is a "Toy Closet" at the Cancer Hospital from which patients can choose an item to help during their stay. I want to stock the Closet with as many toys as possible.  In order to purchase toys for the closet, donation bins will be placed at each of the schools and the red building. These bins will be collecting gently used Lovejoy Spirit Wear. Once collected, the spirit wear will be sold and the money used to buy Toys for the Closet.
 
The toys will be donated in memory of Walker Jack Rainey.
 
I can be reached at brungardt_alexandra@lovejoyisd.com with any comments or questions.  Thank you for your generosity."

Tom Landry Classic - Saturday, September 1st

Parent Drop Off and Pickup
The drop off and pick up point for students is on the North side (or rear) of LHS. There is no student pick-up in the front of the school as this area is for buses only. Please do not park in the front LHS parking area to pick up your students. Click here

Parents should enter using the West entrance (closest to Angel Parkway) and proceed around the back of LHS. Traffic during the first few days of school is always heavier so please be patient as you wait in line.
 
Student Parking
Student drivers must have a parking permit to park at LHS. If your student needs to purchase a permit,  click  here  for detailed instructions.
