Are You Receiving Emails From School and Our District?
Hello Families! Our goal is to inform families of school events and provide important announcements for the coming week. Please contact the school office firstname.lastname@example.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.

Meet the Teacher/Curriculum Night
Meet the Teacher/Curriculum Night will be held virtually this year for 1st-6th grade and in-person for TK-kinder families. You will receive a link from your child’s teacher to join the 1st-6th grade event on Thursday, August 12, 6:00-6:40 or 6:45-7:25 PM. Each teacher will present twice, and will record the session. If you miss the session, it will be shared with you on the classroom ClassDojo.
Kinder will meet in person in the outdoor lunch area on Thursday, August 12 from 6:00-6:40 PM and TK will meet in person on Friday, August 13 at 11:20-11:45 AM in the classroom. More details will be sent out to kinder and TK parents.
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
- Click on the CVESD Safe Return to School Parent Playbook & CVESD Safe Return to school Parent Playbook-SPANISH for current COVID-19 Safety Information.
- Click on the CVESD website for more information on the safe reopening of school.
- 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!
