“Achieving Excellence for ALL – Juntos Alcanzando Excelencia”

Hello Loma Verde Wildcats! This is the 17th week of school.  Attendance is an important part of Distance Learning. Please make sure your child logs on to class on time for the entire class period and completes all assignments.

COVID-19 infection rates continue to rise in our community. Please wear a mask, wash your hands, sanitize frequently used surfaces, and do not congregate with people living outside of your immediate household. Click here for more information.

Parents, we know this school year is challenging on everyone, and we appreciate your patience and cooperation more than you can imagine. Please note that students in grades K-6 will take mid-year district assessments this month. The purpose of assessments is to give teachers needed information about how to better support your child. Please help your child’s learning by NOT giving hints or answers when they are taking a test. Thank you for all your support!

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.

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.
