Dear Lovett Families,

Please mark your calendars for this Thursday at 6 pm for a Lovett Community Meeting with Principal Thompson.  The link to the MS Teams meeting is HERE.

Principal Thompson sent two newsletters this week (see links below).  We are aware that many families have not received these newsletters.  Unfortunately HISD has recently changed student information systems and the transition has not been as smooth as hoped.  Additionally, mass mailings via snail mail have not been possible due to COVID restrictions.  Therefore, please click the links below to catch up on the latest news.

Virtual School Q&A

A Virtual Learning Q&A has been compiled thanks to all of the questions submitted by parents and answers provided by Principal Thompson.  Please see the complete Q&A HERE.
