SCIS Principal Newsletter

Hello Sloan Creek Families!

Woohoo! We finished our first round of STAAR testing and we are beyond proud of all of the students. Testing days are long and they showed incredible character by having positive attitudes and remaining respectful of their peers during testing.

Also, I have to say a HUGE thank you to all of our All-Star volunteers at Sloan Creek. We appreciate your support more than you know and are so thankful for the incredible partnership. We do not take the time you commit to our school lightly. We are so grateful!

Lastly, I wanted to clarify our cell phone policy. The cell phone policy does also prohibit the use of smart watches as they have internet capability. While we know many of our students have smart watches, we cannot allow them because the watches have a text feature. We feel it is important to remain consistent and so we are not allowing either phones or watches on campus. If you child needs the watch for safety purposes after school, please have them put it in their backpack during the day and they are welcome to put it on at dismissal. We will always allow students to call home using our school phone if needed and welcome parents to call us with important messages we may need to relay to their child. Thank you for your cooperation and patience as we work to ensure the best learning environment for our students.

I hope everyone has a fantastic end to their week.

Lovejoy Proud,

Courtney Halpin

Attendance Information

Attendance continues to be a top priority for Lovejoy ISD. It should come as no surprise that attendance has a direct relationship with student learning. Additionally, public school funding is provided by the State of Texas based on each district's average daily attendance (ADA).

Lovejoy has developed an Attendance Task Force consisting of staff, parents, and students to formulate ideas about how to positively impact ADA in our district. One suggestion is to update the community via weekly principal communication on the number of absences each campus has accrued YTD along with the budgetary impact of those absences.
