    MARK YOUR CALENDARS!
    Sneak-A-Peek
    The purpose of this event is to provide children an opportunity to visit their new classrooms and meet their new homeroom teachers before school begins. We are happy to say we are still going to be able to provide this opportunity for the Lower School children, but there will need to be some adjustments made to ensure physical distancing and to help children become acclimated to some new routines at school. 

    Safety Measures:
    • Anyone attending Sneak-A-Peek is expected to wear a mask.
    • Practice personal hygiene.  Hand sanitizer will be available around the building.
    • Practice physical distancing by keeping a minimum distance of 6 feet (2 meters).
    • Please go directly to your child’s new classroom and leave the building once your visit is over.
    Dates and Times:
    Sneak-A-Peek will take place on the days traditionally set aside for this event. The time block will be extended so that families can sign up for a 15 - minutes slot using MyConference Time. 
    • Fourth and Fifth Grade: Tuesday, August 11 from 1:00 – 4:00
    • First and Third Grade: Wednesday, August 12 from 8:00 – 11:00
    • Kindergarten and Second Grade: Wednesday, August 12 from 1:00 - 4:00
    Sign Up Details:
    • Two families will visit the classroom at a time.
    • For those of you who have signed up for parent/teacher conferences using MyConference Time, know that you need the name of your child’s teacher in order to select your time slot.  The silver lining in all this for many families will be that we need to release class lists earlier than we have in the past in order to give you time to sign up for Sneak-A-Peek.  We will include directions on how to use MyConference Time when we share the class lists. 
    • Please pay attention to the time allotted for your family visit and help us stay on schedule so all members of the class have the opportunity to visit and meet the teachers. For the purpose of physical distancing, we greatly appreciate your cooperation! 

    First Day of School, August 13 - 
    School begins at 8:00 and children may be dropped off in carpool beginning at 7:15 AM.  All children will go directly to their classroom that morning.  The Lower School will have an 11:00 AM dismissal the first day.

  • Immunization & Health Forms

    Immunization and Health Forms 
    All Lovett students are required to have a physical completed by their physician every year. All Upper or Middle School students must have on file a GHSA Preparticipation form. This form is considered current for one calendar year from the date of the student’s physical. All GHSA athletic forms are required to be updated by the student’s healthcare provider every 12 months to remain current. All students with diagnosed medical needs, such as asthmasevere food or environmental allergies (requiring EpiPen), diabetesseizures, etc. must have on record, updated each year and signed by a healthcare provider, a specialty medical form for that diagnosis. 
     
    The State of Georgia requires all students to have a current and updated Georgia Certificate of Immunization (Form 3231) on file with their school. All new students must provide the Lovett Health Center a current valid Georgia Form 3231 within 30 days of the start of school. Georgia law provides for two types of exemptions from the immunization requirements: medical and religious. Non-medical exemptions are not accepted by The Lovett School. Medical exemptions must be updated annually by a healthcare provider on a Georgia Form 3231. 
     
    Students without complete immunization records due to medical exemption may be excluded from school-sponsored community service events involving children, mission or overseas trips, or may be excluded from school in the event of an outbreak or epidemic of the preventable disease in which the student is deficient in immunization until vaccination is able to be obtained. 

    MAGNUS
    Magnus Health, a HIPAA compliant system, manages our student health records. Magnus can be accessed by logging in to myLion and clicking on the Magnus icon located on the Resources board. Please complete all Magnus forms for each new and returning student. These forms are required for school attendance.
