We strongly recommend that families use the drop-off and pick-up areas we have established at school. Drop off students only in the drop-off zone.

  • If you must leave your car, park in the parking lot, not the bus loop.
  • Do not park in the crosswalk on Loma Lane.
  • NO Dogs during arrival and dismissal.
  • Please do not park in RESERVED spaces, red curb, or the staff parking lot.
  • Red-marked areas are fire lanes and must be kept clear.
  • Students must walk bikes on the sidewalk.
  • The drop-off window is between 7:15-7:45 AM for students that are eating breakfast on campus and 7:30-8:00 AM for students that are not having breakfast at school. Students will line up on the blacktop in the morning between 7:30-8:00 AM where they will be supervised by Loma Verde staff. Each class has a designated place to line up. Teachers will pick their classes up on the blacktop at 8:00 AM. Instruction begins at 8:00 every day. Your child will be considered tardy if they are not on campus by 8:00 AM.
  • Kinder, TK, SDC preschool, and preschool parents: please follow your teacher’s instructions regarding drop-off.
  • Students who are not picked up by 2:45 pm (1:15 pm on minimum days) will be escorted to the office and must sign in.  The person picking up the child must come to the office to sign him/her out.
  • Parents may come onto campus from 2:30-2:45 PM (1:00-1:15 minimum days) to pick up their child(ren). Please pick up your child outside the classroom and leave campus promptly. Gates will be locked at 2:45 PM and 1:15 PM on minimum days.
  • For everyone’s safety BE PATIENT, KIND, and CONSIDERATE.

A Few Reminders About Attendance:

  1. School starts at 8:00 a.m.
  2. Students should be lined up on the blacktop by 7:55 a.m. ready to start the day!
  3. We ask all parents to exit by the front office promptly so that we can secure the campus and lock the gates after the bell rings.
  4. Please plan family trips during school breaks.
  5. Every school day counts.
  6. Great School attendance sets up students for success in their future workplace. 
  7. READ MORE on studies regarding school attendance.
  8. If they miss school, they miss out! Thank you for getting your child to school every day and on time!
  9. Every minute of every day counts!
  10. NEW COVID GUIDELINES FOR RETURNING TO SCHOOL AFTER SYMPTOMS:
    • A symptomatic person must have negative antigen (e.g. home test) or 1 negative PCR test and may return to school when the following have been met:
    • 24 hours fever-free without the use of fever-reducing medications

Loma Verde students are required to wear school uniforms. Shirts are blue, white or grey and pants/shorts/skirts are navy or black. Spirit t-shirts can be worn any day. Please wear closed-toe shoes daily.

We have a donor that is sponsoring some of our students with free uniforms. If you need assistance with purchasing uniforms for your child, please contact Mrs. Watson at bree.watson@cvesd.org or send her a Dojo message.

If you choose to not have your child wear a uniform, please note, the dress code must be followed. The Uniform Exemption Waiver form this year is available in the office.

Gently Used Uniforms Needed

Has your child outgrown their school uniform from last year? The Loma Verde Health Office needs donations of clean uniform clothes to have on hand for children who need to change clothes. If you have any clean children’s uniform shirts, shorts, pants, or skirts that you no longer need, please bring them to the health office. We are also accepting donations of new, packaged underwear for this purpose.

We strongly recommend that families use the drop-off and pick-up areas we have established at school. Drop off students only in the drop-off zone.

  • If you must leave your car, park in the parking lot, not the bus loop.
  • NO Dogs during arrival and dismissal.
  • Please do not park in RESERVED spaces or the staff parking lot.
  • Students must walk bikes on the sidewalk.
  • The drop-off window is between 7:15-7:45 AM for students that are eating breakfast on campus and 7:30-8:00 AM for students that are not having breakfast at school. Students will line up on the blacktop in the morning between 7:30-8:00 AM where they will be supervised by Loma Verde staff. Each class has a designated place to line up. Teachers will pick their classes up on the blacktop at 8:00 AM. Instruction begins at 8:00 every day. Your child will be considered tardy if they are not on campus by 8:00 AM.
  • Kinder, TK, SDC preschool, and preschool parents: please follow your teacher’s instructions regarding drop-off.
  • Students who are not picked up by 2:45 pm (1:15 pm on minimum days) will be escorted to the office and must sign in.  The person picking up the child must come to the office to sign him/her out.
  • Parents may come onto campus from 2:30-2:45 PM (1:00-1:15 minimum days) to pick up their child(ren). Please pick up your child outside the classroom and leave campus promptly. Gates will be locked at 2:45 PM and 1:15 PM on minimum days.
  • For everyone’s safety BE PATIENT, KIND, and CONSIDERATE.

The Wildcat Way – May 30-June 3, 2022 (Week #38)

Last Week of School!

Hello Loma Verde Families,

We are all saddened by last week’s senseless tragedy in Texas.

At Loma Verde Elementary, we can work together to keep our school community safe.  A starting point is that if you see something, say something.  Discuss with your children that we do not make jokes about harming others.  We encourage families to have age-appropriate conversations with your children about what happened in Texas last Tuesday.  Our staff, such as our school counselor and school psychologist, are available to provide support for students on campus, but we know that parents and legal guardians are a vital part of a child’s education that extends outside of school hours.

I would like to share 2 resources with you to support these conversations.  Here is a San Diego County Office of Education resource for parents and educators to discuss school shootings:  https://www.sdcoe.net/about-sdcoe/news/post/~board/news/post/resources-to-discuss-school-shootings

Another great resource is Sandy Hook Promise:  https://www.sandyhookpromise.org/

If you have not yet read Dr. Reyes’ statement, please do so now by clicking on the link here.

Our hearts are with Uvalde. Children and educators should be able to go to school free from violence. As we move forward together, I call on our school community to remember that every action begins with each one of us. I urge each of you to take good care of yourselves and your families and to find ways to connect with one another through compassion.

Together, we can provide the comfort and care needed for our children.  We pledge to partner with families to move forward and heal.  Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher or the school office.

In Service,

Mrs. Bree Watson, Principal

Thank You, Volunteers!

Thank you to our AMAZING Loma Verde volunteers! We are so grateful for your help and support to make this school year special for our students and staff! We honored our volunteers at a breakfast on Friday, May 27 with a performance from our kindergarten dual immersion students and a raffle. We look forward to a wonderful school year in 2022-2023! Your partnership is necessary and appreciated! Please contact your child’s teacher or the principal, Bree Watson bree.watson@cvesd.org to volunteer.

Residency Verification – Must Be Completed By 6/3

You will be receiving an email that will contain a unique “Snap Code” for each of your children enrolled at Loma Verde and a link to the website where you will be able to update information for your child and upload your residency for the 22/23 school year. You will only receive an email if you have a valid email on file at Loma Verde. If your email has recently changed, or if you do not receive emails from the district, please email or call the office to update your information at 619-420-3940 or lomaverdeschool@cvesd.org. We sent the “Snap Codes” last week.

CAASPP Testing Snacks Needed!

CAASPP Testing for 3rd-6th graders is here! 🙈 Let’s support these amazing students by donating snacks to help them be energized and focused during standardized testing! Peace Patrol has volunteered to help collect and organize snack packs for some upper-grade classrooms.

Upper-Grade classes are SO THANKFUL for all the many donations to our Testing Treats! State testing next week is daunting, but knowing our friends and family support us will help us persevere!

We are all full on the previous snacks so now we only need more of the following:
1) Pretzels (available Costco Business)
2) Chocolate Chip Granola Bars (available at Walmart and other superstores etc) NO PEANUT BUTTER, please
3) Cheez-Its (available at National City Walmart SuperCenter and Target)

Since pretzels are hard to find, some classes will get Granola Bars instead.

Bring them tomorrow, Fri May 6th or Monday, May 9th, and Peace Patrol will get them organized for each class.

Thank you so much for supporting our 3rd-6th graders!

CAASPP Testing Snacks Needed!

CAASPP Testing for 3rd-6th graders is around the corner! 🙈 Let’s support these amazing students by donating snacks to help them be energized and focused during standardized testing! 🥨

Peace Patrol has volunteered to help collect and organize snack packs for some upper-grade classrooms. Since there are 9 classrooms that are in need and there will be 8 days of CAASPP testing, we need A LOT of donations (those with allergies will be given another snack). Here is what we need:

– Individually Packaged Goldfish (410 total)
– Fruit Gummy Snacks (410 total)
– Individually packaged Pretzels (410 total)
– Individually packaged Cheez-Its (410 total)
– Peppermint Puffy Mints (daily treat, so need approximately 1,620… Amazon sells in buckets of 160)

❗️Please consider buying around 30 of one of these items. ❗️That would cover 1 class for 1 day of testing. Feel free to donate more!

When to donate: After School,
Dates to donate: Monday, April 25 to Monday, May 2 (this will give us time to organize for classrooms)

There will be a box for each type of treat at the front of the school after the dismissal bell rings. Look for the Peace Patrollers to see where to drop it off! Thank you for your support for all students!

Summer Learning Academy

As a year-round school district, CVESD does not provide a traditional summer school experience. However, for the first time in many years, our district will offer a summer learning option called the Summer Learning Academy. This program will have very limited space and is intended to meet the needs of our students needing the highest level of academic and social-emotional support from the district. This may include students that are homeless or foster youth or students who are English Learners or students with disabilities. The Summer Learning Academy is designed to address the needs of our students in need, who may not otherwise get additional support.

Our school will be contacting families who qualify for this program directly to invite them to this Summer Learning Academy, which will not be at Loma Verde Elementary, but rather at another school in our district. Parents will need to provide transportation for their child if they qualify for this program. Please contact the school office directly with questions about this program.

Effective March 21, masking is no longer required but is strongly recommended for all students and staff members. However, it should be noted that we are required to continue to follow the SDCOE (San Diego County Office of Education) Decision Tree.

Testing will occur every Tuesday at Loma Verde. If you have consented to testing at a COVID kiosk, it is also giving consent to test at school. To register your child CLICK HERE or with this link: https://school.covidclinic.org.

We tested you or your child in the past: We will continue to test free of charge. The government requires our school and Covid Clinic to ask if parents have insurance or are uninsured. Please fill out the form below. YOU WILL NOT BE CHARGED!!! https://secure.covidclinic.org/insurance/

Watch this detailed video: https://vimeo.com/699606532

IMPORTANT: We have provided COVID-19 testing for you or your dependents during the COVID-19 pandemic. A new California law (SB 510) took effect January 1, 2022, and requires California private insurance plans to pay for ALL COVID-19 testing received by you and your dependents at any time during the COVID-19 pandemic, at no cost to you. Additionally, federal funding via HRSA will no longer cover testing for those without insurance. To make sure you and your dependents receive the benefit of this new law, and so you do not receive a bill from us for COVID-19 testing, we need your insurance information now. Once you provide us with accurate insurance information, we will bill and accept payment from your insurance plan (at no out-of-pocket cost to you or your dependents) for any COVID-19 testing received from us in the past or in the future. But without your accurate insurance information, we cannot help you and your dependents to receive the benefit of this new law. Please contact Covid Clinic at k12@covidclinic.org with any questions. Thank you.

Summer Learning Academy

As a year-round school district, CVESD does not provide a traditional summer school experience. However, for the first time in many years, our district will offer a summer learning option called the Summer Learning Academy. This program will have very limited space and is intended to meet the needs of our students needing the highest level of academic and social-emotional support from the district. This may include students that are homeless or foster youth or students who are English Learners or students with disabilities. The Summer Learning Academy is designed to address the needs of our students in need, who may not otherwise get additional support.

Our school will be contacting families who qualify for this program directly to invite them to this Summer Learning Academy, which will not be at Loma Verde Elementary, but rather at another school in our district. Parents will need to provide transportation for their child if they qualify for this program. Please contact the school office directly with questions about this program.

Indoor Masking Update:

Effective March 21, masking is no longer required but is strongly recommended for all students and staff members. However, it should be noted that we are required to continue to follow the SDCOE (San Diego County Office of Education) Decision Tree. We will continue to require masking for students and staff early releasing from isolation (positive cases) days 6 – 10 and students and staff exposed to positive cases in the k-12 setting. Please click here for the most up-to-date decision tree.

Weekly, On-Site, Covid Testing at Loma Verde

Testing will occur every Tuesday at Loma Verde. If you have consented to testing at a COVID kiosk, it is also giving consent to test at school. To register your child CLICK HERE or with this link: https://school.covidclinic.org.

We tested you or your child in the past: We will continue to test free of charge. The government requires our school and Covid Clinic to ask if parents have insurance or are uninsured. Please fill out the form below. YOU WILL NOT BE CHARGED!!! https://secure.covidclinic.org/insurance/

Watch this detailed video: https://vimeo.com/699606532

IMPORTANT: We have provided COVID-19 testing for you or your dependents during the COVID-19 pandemic. A new California law (SB 510) took effect January 1, 2022, and requires California private insurance plans to pay for ALL COVID-19 testing received by you and your dependents at any time during the COVID-19 pandemic, at no cost to you. Additionally, federal funding via HRSA will no longer cover testing for those without insurance. To make sure you and your dependents receive the benefit of this new law, and so you do not receive a bill from us for COVID-19 testing, we need your insurance information now. Once you provide us with accurate insurance information, we will bill and accept payment from your insurance plan (at no out-of-pocket cost to you or your dependents) for any COVID-19 testing received from us in the past or in the future. But without your accurate insurance information, we cannot help you and your dependents to receive the benefit of this new law. Please contact Covid Clinic at k12@covidclinic.org with any questions. Thank you.

IMPORTANTE: Si te hemos realizado pruebas de COVID-19 para usted o algún miembro de su familia durante la pandemia de COVID-19. Una nueva ley de California (SB 510) entró en vigor el 1 de enero de 2022 y requiere que su plan de seguro médico privado de California paguen TODAS las pruebas de COVID-19 recibidas por usted y sus dependientes en cualquier momento durante la pandemia de COVID-19, sin costo alguno para usted. Adicionalmente, fondos federales de HRSA no cubrirá los costos de pruebas sin seguro médico. Para asegurarse de que usted y sus dependientes reciban el beneficio de esta nueva ley, y para que no reciba una factura de nuestra parte para las pruebas realizadas de COVID-19, necesitamos la información de su seguro médico lo más pronto posible. Una vez que usted nos proporcione la información precisa de su seguro médico, facturaremos y aceptaremos el pago de su plan de seguro médico (sin costo de bolsillo para usted y sus dependientes) por cualquier prueba realizada de COVID-19 por nosotros. Pero sin su información precisa sobre el seguro médico, no podemos ayudarle a usted y a sus dependientes a recibir el beneficio de esta nueva ley.

Favor de contactar k12@covidclinic.org con cualquier pregunta.

Gracias.

Indoor Masking Update:

The Chula Vista Elementary School District is meeting this week with multiple stakeholder groups and experts to determine how we will move forward with the masking guidance as a District once the state indoor masking expires on 3/12/22. We will be providing all stakeholder input and information to our governing board at our next board meeting on March 9, 2022, so they can make the best-informed decision regarding indoor masking for students and staff. We are optimistic about the opportunity to reevaluate community guidance while maintaining a safe learning environment for our staff and students. Once the District updates guidance, we will send out updated guidance, until then we will continue to require making for students and staff.

Weekly, On-Site, Covid Testing Tues., 3/8 at Loma Verde

Testing Frequency | Genesis HealthCare

If you would like to take advantage of this free and convenient service, you must register your children by using the link provided to you via your email or with this link: https://school.covidclinic.org. So far we have 190 students and staff signed up to test!

To register your account, click the parent/guardian tab. Fill in your information and then your children’s information. You will need each child’s student ID#. You will then be prompted to Part Two which is ordering a test for your children. This second step must be completed by 12:00 PM on Monday, 3/7 to ensure we have a test kit prepared for your child by Tuesday. After doing this the first time, the order will repeat itself every week – no further action will be needed. You will receive an email confirming “Your Order Has Been Placed”.

To revoke or skip testing at any time after that email: k12@covidclinic.org

Anyone that has tested positive for Covid would want to skip PCR testing for 90-days as this could result in false positives.

On Tuesdays, teams will go to each classroom to test students & staff that are registered and have ordered their tests. This will take approximately 10 minutes per class. Any positive results will be reported to you and the district the next day through an email.

Weekly COVID testing of all students and staff at school will increase our ability to keep our school safe and open during this pandemic. It also removes the burden from you to take your children to get tested after every exposure, and it will fill the weekly testing requirement for sports team participation.

Thank you for your participation!
