The Wildcat Way – January 17-21, 2022 (Week #21)

Facebook

There is NO SCHOOL on Monday, January 17, in observance of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

Hello Loma Verde Families,

I want to recognize our Loma Verde Elementary Staff for their unwavering dedication to keeping our school open and a safe place of learning for your children. The greatest support you can offer right now is ensuring that children with COVID symptoms do not come to school. 

In observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, CVESD’s COVID-19 testing centers at both the District’s Education Services and Support Center (ESSC) and Hedenkamp Elementary School will be closed on Monday, January 17, 2022. Both sites will reopen for testing during their regular hours on Tuesday, January 18, 2022.

6TH GRADE LIVING HISTORY PRESENTATIONS

6th graders in Mrs. Youssofi’s and Mrs. Murdoch’s classes presented their famous person reports to other students in the school. We were impressed by their knowledge and presentations!

Mural Unveiling on Friday, January 14 for Loma Verde Community

There was a mural unveiling ceremony on Friday, January 14th, 2022, in Loma Verde Park, to celebrate the completion of the beautiful mural painting located right behind Loma Verde Elementary (off Hilltop Dive). The Trojans Loving our Community (TLC) club from Castle Park High School, the city of Chula Vista, and 2 city council members worked together to help complete the mural painting in the weeks before winter break. The artwork itself was completed by Ground Floor Murals with the support of the community. The wall was selected so our Loma Verde students can see it from the playground. The mural can be seen from the playground/dirt field on the large wall facing Loma Verde (The large mountain lion is a nod from the artist to the Castle Park and the Loma Verde community!). We are so grateful for this amazing artwork and generosity to the community!

Anytime there is a case of COVID-19, it is a good reminder to review our safety measures. Please continue to mask up, maintain physical distancing when possible, and wash your hands/sanitize the spaces you use.  It is also recommended that all staff use air filtration devices (with the timers and set to use the ionizer feature).  A friendly reminder that if anyone (staff or student) presents with any symptom of COVID-19 at school, they must go home.

Out of an abundance of caution and in alignment with California state law, I am hereby informing you that the District learned an individual at school tested positive for the virus that causes COVID-19. This individual is currently in isolation and all staff members and students who may have been affected have already been contacted.

If you have not already been notified that you are a close contact by me or Nurse Linda, at this time, you are NOT considered a close contact with a person who recently tested positive for the virus.

Courtesy Notice

Hello Loma Verde Families and Staff,

This is a courtesy notice sent to all school community members by email.  Our campus is very safe and our safety procedures appear to be working.

Anytime there is a case of COVID-19, it is a good reminder to review our safety measures… Please continue to mask up, maintain physical distancing when possible, and wash your hands/sanitize the spaces you use.  It is also recommended that all staff use air filtration devices (with the timers and set to use the ionizer feature).  A friendly reminder that if anyone (staff or student) presents with any symptom of COVID-19 at school, they must go home.

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea

Out of an abundance of caution and in alignment with California state law, I am hereby informing you that the District learned an individual at school tested positive for the virus that causes COVID-19. This individual is currently in isolation and all staff members and students who may have been affected have already been contacted.

If you have not already been notified that you are a close contact by me or Nurse Linda, at this time, you are NOT considered a close contact with a person who recently tested positive for the virus.

Please read the attached letter from the district’s Emergency Preparedness Office regarding an individual who tested positive for COVID-19 recently and was on Loma Verde’s campus on 11/5/21.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school office at (619) 420-3940.

Warmly,

Bree Watson, Principal

Mask Policy Reminder

The Chula Vista Elementary School Board revised the mask policy on August 25th at their Special Board Meeting. The mandate states a properly positioned and correctly fitted mask must be worn at all campuses, including District offices, at all times, regardless of vaccination status. Adults may only remove masks when actively eating or drinking. Masks must be worn if anyone is around, students or staff, vaccinated or not. This includes parents/guardians who may be walking their students onto campus. Students may remove their masks only to play at recess and to eat, both of which should happen outdoors, weather permitting. Masks are required in hallways while traveling to and from the playground and lunch area.

    • NO dogs allowed 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 7:30-7:55 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.
    • Please plan accordingly and arrive a few minutes earlier to avoid traffic.

    CVESD Board Strengthens COVID-19 Masking Guidance, Safety Protocols

    Please read this update for families and staff carefully. The CVESD Board of Education recently approved a change to the IIPP (Injury and Illness Prevention Program) requiring masks to be worn on all sites within the Chula Vista Elementary School District. Masks must cover the mouth and nose for all staff, students, parents, and visitors on campuses.

    The Board approved changes to the Injury and Illness Prevention Program, COVID-19 Prevention Plan, and District Guidance to Staff, Students, Parents/Guardians, and community regarding COVID-19. Below are the changes that were approved by the Board on Wednesday, August 25th: 

    Cute Boy With Medical Mask In Cartoon Style Isolated On White Background  Stock Vector - Illustration of background, male: 176012934

     The Chula Vista Elementary School District will mandate properly positioned and correctly fitted masks to be worn on District campuses at all times, regardless of vaccination status. Adults may only remove masks when actively eating or drinking. Students may remove their masks only to play at recess and to eat, both of which should happen outdoors. Masks are required in hallways while traveling to and from the playground and lunch area. 

    • The Chula Vista Elementary School District will form a District-level Safety Committee, with representation from certificated, classified, and non-represented employees, as well as parents, to advise on the creation and implementation of COVID-19 safety measures, and to oversee site-level committees. All school sites will create a Site Safety Committee, with representation from certificated, classified, and non-represented employees, as well as parents, to address site-specific safety concerns and help implement District safety measures. 

    • The Chula Vista Elementary School District will publish a weekly COVID-19 update with simple, bulleted information, including current District case numbers (including the last reporting date for those numbers) as well as any changes made in COVID-19 guidelines that week. It will be sent directly to stakeholders including, but not limited to, staff and parents/guardians via email and School Messenger and published on the District website in an easily accessible location.

    The Wildcat Way August `16-20, 2021 (Week #5)

    WILDCAT TRAITS

    Our Loma Verde Wildcats have been learning what it means to be a Wildcat the past several weeks. Our 3 Personal Standards help make Loma Verde a wonderful place for our students to learn and grow. Please review the traits with your children. We are always looking for Wildcats that go above and beyond demonstrating the 3 Personal Standards: Show Respect, Mark Good Decisions, and Solve Problems! We look forward to recognizing our Wildcats of the Week on Monday at our Blacktop Character Assembly! Please keep encouraging our Wildcats to be their best selves each day!

    We want to share a few important reminders:

    You may have many questions regarding current school procedures.

    • All staff and students will wear masks while indoors and may remove masks outdoors. Teach your child to place their mask either under chin, on wrist, or in pocket when not in use. If you choose to use a mask lanyard, please ensure that it has a breakaway feature for safety. Please note that scarves and gaiters are not a substitute for masks.
    • Students may take off masks during lunch and recess

    • Students may take off masks during outside instruction or activities
    • Please screen your child for Covid-19 symptoms each day before school.
    • If your child has any pre-existing conditions, including those with Covid-like symptoms (e.g. allergies, asthma), please provide documentation from the doctor so that we can have it on file. This will help prevent your child from being sent home if they have symptoms from a chronic condition. Contact our nurse, Linda Kucinski, for questions at linda.kuciniski@cvesd.org.
    • Please send a water bottle with your child. Water bottles can be filled at the classroom sink. Drinking fountains are now open on the blacktop by the 300 and 400 buildings.
    • Label lunch boxes, water bottles, and sweaters with your child’s name!
