Are You Receiving Emails From School and Our District?

Blog - Engaging Leadership

Hello Families! Our goal is to inform families of school events and provide important announcements for the coming week. Please contact the school office lomaverdeschool@cvesd.org if you are not getting the School Messenger emails and texts. We also recommend you “Follow Our Blog” by entering in your email in the field to the right of this information if you are viewing on a computer or at the bottom of the blog if you viewing it on a phone. This way, you will receive automatic updates as they are released. The weekly blog will be sent out at the beginning of each week through CVESD School Messenger, ClassDojo, and Loma Verde’s Facebook page.  Thank you for reading the weekly blog.

Your Input is Needed!

Please complete the Loma Verde Elementary School Parent Involvement Survey to help us better plan for the 2021-2022 school year. It will take approximately 4 minutes to complete. https://forms.office.com/r/AcvvpTNR7H

We want to share a few important reminders:

You may have many questions regarding current school procedures. Please view the Loma Verde Parent-Student-Handbook for important information about our school and the CVESD Safe Return to School Parent Playbook  & CVESD Safe Return to school Parent Playbook-SPANISH for current COVID-19 Safety Information. There is also more information on the safe reopening of school on the CVESD website.

  • 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
  • As of now, parent volunteers are not allowed on campus
  • 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.
  • 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!

PARKING, DROP-OFF, AND PICK-UP

All of us at Loma Verde want to thank our families and community members in advance for their patience and understanding as we try to accommodate the many vehicles that arrive each morning and afternoon at our school. We strongly recommend that families use the drop-off and pick up areas we have established at school. Drop off students only in the drop-off zone.

  • If you must leave your car, park in the parking lot, not the bus loop.
  • NO dogs 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.
  • TK, SDC preschool, and preschool parents: please follow your teacher’s instructions regarding drop off.
  • Students who are not picked up by 2:45 PM (1:15 pm on minimum days) will be escorted to the office and must sign in.  The person picking up the child must come to the office to sign him/her out.
  • Parent may come onto campus to drop off their child in the morning between 7:30-7:55 AM and from 2:30-2:45 PM (1:00-1:15 minimum days) to pick up their child(ren). Per CVESD guidelines, please say good-bye quickly to your child at the gate, classroom, or blacktop classroom line and exit immediately after dropping off your child. Parents are NOT allowed in buildings at this time. Please pick up your child outside the classroom and leave campus promptly. We recommend that you wear a mask if you are unvaccinated. Gates will be locked at 2:45 PM and 1:15 PM on minimum days.
  • For everyone’s safety BE PATIENT, KIND, and CONSIDERATE.
