A Message from the Principal
 
Lovejoy HS News 09 04 18

P arents and Guardians,

I hope you and your student enjoyed the 3-day weekend.  At the Mayfield house, it was a welcome break after the busyness of the first couple weeks of school.  We were also blessed to have our entire family together as our three oldest kids were home from college to celebrate Christy's birthday.
 
Although the rest of this email contains important dates and information about upcoming events, I want to specifically highlight the LHS Open House which is just two weeks away on Monday, September 17th from 6:30 - 8:00 p.m. Please mark your calendar, and join us here at LHS as you follow your student's schedule. It is a fast-moving evening, but will give you the chance to meet the teachers and get a small taste of what your student's day is like.
 
Have a great week!
 
Sincerely,

Chris Mayfield
Principal
Lovejoy High School

Students Leaving Campus
In the event that students need to leave campus during the school day and they drive themselves, we need parents to send an email to student_signout@lovejoyisd.net . Please include the student's name, the date and time they need to leave, the reason, and a phone number to be used to contact you. Once we have received the email, we may call you for verification, and the email will provide us with the needed documentation for our records.
 
If your student wants to go home because they are not feeling well, please have them to go the school clinic to be checked out by the school nurse. This is regardless of whether they are being picked up by a parent or driving themselves.

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."
