Standard Response Protocol and Safety Reminders
Our safety drills this Friday went really well. We wanted to take this opportunity to reshare our SRP document which contains information on each specific drill/procedure. Please keep this as a resource and familiarize yourself with the language we use in LISD. If you have any questions, please reach out to Mr. Montague. He is the Associate Principal and can be reached at email@example.com

Need to register to vote?
We are excited to provide eligible high school students with the opportunity to register to vote under Section 13.046(a) of the Texas Election Code. We will have voter registrar applications available to students that are 18 years of age. You can pick up an application at the LHS Library or from Deborah Martinez in the AP Office.
Attendance Task Force Weekly Report
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. This information can be found below:

Student Sign-Out (Driver and Parent Pick-Up)
If your student needs to leave campus for any reason, please send sign-out requests to LHSSignout@lovejoyisd.net. Your student will get a slip and be dismissed at the specified time. Please include the student's name, time they need to be dismissed, and any details we may need. We kindly ask that the requests are submitted as far in advance as possible.
Positive Behavior Traits: CARING
This year, the counseling department will be focusing on the four principal Positive Behavior Traits from the Texas Education Agency TEKS. Please use the slides linked below to review what caring looks like in a variety of ways during high school for Lovejoy Leopards . We encourage you to connect this with your family's expectations as well!
