The staff and I are excited to welcome our students back on campus! We look forward to seeing our Loma Verde Wildcats in person. Safety protocols are in place. The in-person, hybrid instructional model for students will begin on Monday, April 12. We are finalizing rosters for in-person AM and PM cohorts and distance learning. You will be notified during the week of April 5 of your child’s hybrid/distance learning class.
Please note that this change to hybrid instruction may require many students, even those continuing in Distance Learning, to be re-assigned to a different teacher. Our school team tried its very best to accommodate parent preferences. Please know that despite our best efforts, we may have offered some families an option that does not match their preferences. We will create a waitlist for in-person instruction. We appreciate your patience, understanding, and flexibility.
The week of April 5th to April 9th is a teacher preparation week. This means that all students will receive 180 minutes of synchronous, online instruction from their current teacher, but will receive the remaining required instructional minutes asynchronously online.

Hybrid Arrival & Dismissal Procedures
We have identified arrival and dismissal procedures for employees and students. Students will be enter at one of two places:
- Front of the school – walkers or drop off
- Back north west corner by the park – walkers only
If you are driving, cars must enter by the Loma Verde Rec center parking lot on Loma Lane and follow the bus loop next to school. Do not enter in the exit driveway and please following traffic signs. Preschool, TK and Kinder will pull up next to the school in the 1st drop off lane. 1st-6th graders will be dropped off in a 2nd lane in front of the school. Staff will direct cars where to go. Thank you for your patience with our new arrival and dismissal policy.
To ensure safety for everyone there is a 10-minute arrival time window for each cohort. For the AM Cohort students may arrive anytime between 8:00 AM– 8:10 AM. For the PM Cohort students may arrive between 12:00 PM – 12:10 PM. Students should not arrive before this time as there is no supervision.
- Please always keep younger siblings in strollers or with you.
- NO PETS!
- Please remember to stay 6 foot apart from others.
- Students may report to campus either by vehicle drop off or walking.
- No one other than staff and students will be allowed on the campus.
Students will be dismissed from the AM Cohort at 10:45 PM or at 2:45 PM for the PM Cohort. Walkers will be dismissed 5 minutes early to exit through the front gate or back gate near the park. If they are waiting for a sibling to walk with, students will meet outside room 403 by the large tree. Students waiting for a car ride will line up on campus, inside the gate to wait for their ride. Parent will have a sign with their child’s name on it displayed inside the car window. (Signs will be given out to hybrid students the week of April 5-9.) When a parent drives up, the student will be called to the front side walk to enter the car. Please make sure that anyone picking up your child is listed on the emergency card. Staff will assist with dismissal and traffic. Please be on time to pick up your child from the hybrid AM or PM cohort.
