The Superintendent, Dr. Escobedo, released a letter to families on Friday discussing the POSSIBILITY of bringing Pre-K to 2nd grade students and SDC students back for in-person learning. The POSSIBLE date is October 26th. Please know that this date may change or be pushed back due to health regulations. At this time, there is not a date set for grades 3-6. Some important things to note:
- Your child’s teacher may change
- Your choice is FINAL and cannot be changed
- School will be modified days Monday through Thursday only
- There will be no childcare available
- At any time we could have a full return to Distance Learning due to health restrictions
Every family must fill out the REGISTRATION COMMITMENT FORM below. It will be posted on our school blog, Facebook, and will also be sent out through ClassDojo. Please fill out the Registration Commitment Form for every student that you have at Loma Verde (for example, if you have 3 students then fill it out three times).
We will keep you updated as we get more information and details. Thank you!

CVESD Student Distance Learning Acceptable Use Agreement Form
As we continue Distance Learning, as well as using computer when we return campus, it is important that ALL students and parents understand the acceptable use guidelines. Guidelines must be followed due to school guidelines as well as the fact they are using district logins. Thank you for going over this with your child(ren).

Loma Verde Lending Library – IT’s FREE
On Monday, September 28st and Tuesday, September 29th from 12:00-4:00, Loma Verde will open our NEW Lending Library. It’s Free. We at Loma Verde believe that during this time we all need to have real books in student’s hands. We have over 200 books donated by The Molina Foundation. Please join us! Come borrow a book and if you have books at home that you have already read to add to our library please drop them off. When you are finished reading the books, drop them back off at school. We will make sure they are cleaned and lent out the next week.
The Lending Library will be open every Monday and Tuesday from 12:00-4:00 pm in front of Loma Verde Elementary School.
Please Return Your Library Books
Please return any Loma Verde library books you still have at home. We will be sending out overdue notices to students that have not returned library books from the 2019-2020 school year. There will be a box in front of the gate by the office from 7:30-4:00 for you to return library books.
Pick Up or Buy Your 2019-2020 Yearbook
If you purchased a yearbook, and did not have a chance to come pick it up, stop by the school office on Thursday, October 1 from 12 – 2 pm. There are a few yearbooks still for sale. Softcover are $20 and hardcover are $25. Please bring exact cash.
Computer Devices & WIFI to Loan Families
We recommend each student have their own laptop with a camera and microphone for Distance Learning. Some tablets have compatibility issues with the Microsoft Teams platform and online learning programs.
If your child needs a device or wifi hotspot, please complete and submit this form below, so we can plan and prepare the devices for distribution. If you do not need a device or hotspot, please do not fill out this form. Please fill out a form for each child who needs a device. Do not fill out for a child who previously received a device. We will notify you when you device and/or WIFI hotspot are ready.

TECHNOLOGY TIPS AND SUPPORT
Because our students are using devices for Distance Learning daily, it is important to be sure they are working well. Please remind our Wildcat students to shut down their devices each day. Please know just closing the laptop is not enough. Use the power menu and fully shut down the device each day. Important updates are installed if the computer is shut down. It also completely exits the we browser which helps ensure optimum performance. We are available to support you with technology issue that persist after shutting down the device. We are happy to answer questions you have over the phone: (619) 420-3940 or in person between the hours of 7:30 am and 4:00 pm. If you have a school laptop that is not working properly, please feel free to stop by or call for support.
