Hello Loma Verde Wildcats! Welcome to our Loma Verde School blog. This is the 8th week of school. We are continuing in distance learning format for our preschool through 6th grade students. Please read below for important information.
When Will We Reopen Schools for Live Instruction?
Although our goal of a phased return to in-person instruction was proposed for October 26, 2020, our District will take extra precautions and postpone the reopening because COVID-19 transmission rates in our boundaries are still too high. We want to give you notice now of our decision. We remain committed to a safe return when the data in our boundary area supports resuming at least a hybrid form of in-person instruction. In the meantime, we will continue working with our bargaining groups and stakeholders to ensure a safe reopening at a future date.

Parent Teacher Conferences
Parent-Teacher Conferences are on October 15-22. Students will only have 2 hours of live synchronous instruction during these days. Your child’s teacher will give you a more detailed schedule. Please sign up for a virtual conference to review your child’s progress, goals, and initial assessments in math and language arts. All meetings will occur virtually, as there are not visitors allowed on campus at this time.
CVESD Meal Service for Loma Verde Students
Our Loma Verde meal service will take place from 12:00-2:00 once a week on Thursdays for students. Pick up the 5 days worth of meals at the front of the school.

The CVESD Caring Crew and YOU!
We would like to remind our entire community that following the four pillars of health can prevent the spread of COVID-19. As we prepare for the eventual return of some students to campus in phases, our District and school will be enforcing the four core principles (also known as four pillars) for the prevention of COVID-19. These include: 1) Daily Health Screenings, 2) Mask Wearing, 3) Physical Distancing, and 4) Frequent Hand Washing.

Conditional voter registration is a safety net for Californians who miss the deadline to register to vote or update their voter registration information. Voters can use the conditional voter registration process from the day after the deadline all the way through Election Day. Eligible citizens can go to their county election office, polling place, or vote center to register and vote conditionally. These ballots will be processed once the county elections office has completed the voter registration verification process.
