SUBJECT: The Lovett Letter - November 26, 2023

November 26, 2023
Message From the Principal

Good evening Lovett families.

I hope you have all had an amazing Thanksgiving break!  I'm excited to see my kiddos tomorrow as we enjoy the next four weeks of school before we close out 2023.  

Tomorrow when dropping off you will notice security updates to the school.  In compliance with Texas updated safety codes for schools, all exterior doors facing the street have been reinforced with an extra safety gate.  This provides an additional layer of protection to keep our students and staff safe.  At the front entrance on  Jason street, we will have two secure areas.  Once completed you will ring to enter the first set of gates and then again to enter the office.  We ask that you make sure to look into the camera when ringing so we can clearly see.  While our front office staff is great with recognizing our parents, they might not recognize all, so please be patient if asked to identify yourself and the purpose for visiting.  I am looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow!

Coffee with the Principal this week! Friday December 1st @ 8:00 am
