A Message from the Principal
September 14, 2020

Parents and Guardians,

Last week was exciting as we welcomed students for face to face instruction at LHS. The words “weird” and “different” were heard from just about everyone, but it was really good to see teachers and students back in the building. I was really proud of the way both students and teachers approached the changes to our school setting in regards to social distancing and wearing a mask. 

This week our 9th-11th graders will be taking school pictures during their Math classes. More information can be found below including links for picture order forms and scheduling instructions for virtual students. 

On Wednesday, September 16th our students will also have the opportunity to attend our Virtual College Fair. The event begins at 1:00 p.m. and teachers will be supporting students as they get to virtually visit over 300 institutions of higher education. You can visit our Fall 2020 College Fair page on the LHS website for more information.

Have a great week!

Sincerely,

Chris Mayfield
Principal
Lovejoy High School
