Beginning of School Year FAQ's
What bell schedule will my student be following beginning August 17th?
How will I know if it is an "A/B" day?
When will my student know their schedule?
Student schedules for the new school year will be available to view in PowerSchool on Friday, August 14th. Our counselors have worked diligently to ensure your student has received the best schedule possible.
Once received, please check for the following:
The schedule has all 4 core classes (Math, English, Science, History)
There is class listed every period
Lunches are not shown on your schedule. Lunch times will be given to students the first day of school based on their 3rd and 4th period classes.
At this time, we will not be making any changes based on teacher/friend preferences. Elective classes are limited in size and some alternate elective classes were used to create schedules. Unfortunately, schedule changes for electives will be granted only on a limited basis. If you requested Band, Choir, Orchestra, Athletics, Cheer, Color Guard, Dance, or another application based class and do not see it on your schedule, please contact your child's counselor.
How will my student get the zoom links to join classes?
Zoom links will be posted in each student's Google Classroom by their teacher. Google accounts for each student will be populated automatically when schedules are released.
What do I do if my student has problems logging in on the first day of school?
If your child has an issue logging into their classes on the first day of school please contact the Technology Help Desk at 214-507-4415.
What does my student do during their athletic period, in the first 3 weeks of virtual learning?
If your student is enrolled in an athletic period, there will be a workout posted in Google classroom for them to complete asynchronously.
If you need to bring an Epi-pen and Benadryl, an Inhaler, or other medications that your child might need at school during the school year, please call the clinic number of 469-742-8420 or email Nurse Young directly at Gretchen_Young@lovejoyisd.net to arrange a time with her to bring the medication and proper forms.
She will be available for drop off of forms and medications during the weeks of Aug. 17th- 21st and Aug. 24th-28th.
The Medication forms, Emergency Action forms, and the Asthma Action forms can all be found on the district website under the Student Health Services page. Some of these forms must be signed by the child's physician as well as their parent, so you will need to fill these out ahead of time.
All medications must be in their original packaging (NO ziplock baggies of medications) and not expired.
Prescription medications must have the proper label on the bottle or packaging and will have to be counted with the parent dropping the medication off.
If your child has Art on their schedule, please plan to pick up supplies on Friday, August 14th between 2pm - 4pm, in the courtyard on the backside of WSMS.
All student passwords will be reset for PowerSchool and Google on Wednesday, August 12th.
Student passwords will then be set back to student ID numbers. If you don't recall your students ID number, it can be looked up in PowerSchool. The login format will remain the same as previous school years, username: lastname_firstname and password: StudentID
For example, Suzie Jones with her ID #12345 will log in as:
