The Wildcat Way August `16-20, 2021 (Week #5)

WILDCAT TRAITS

Our Loma Verde Wildcats have been learning what it means to be a Wildcat the past several weeks. Our 3 Personal Standards help make Loma Verde a wonderful place for our students to learn and grow. Please review the traits with your children. We are always looking for Wildcats that go above and beyond demonstrating the 3 Personal Standards: Show Respect, Mark Good Decisions, and Solve Problems! We look forward to recognizing our Wildcats of the Week on Monday at our Blacktop Character Assembly! Please keep encouraging our Wildcats to be their best selves each day!

We want to share a few important reminders:

You may have many questions regarding current school procedures.

  • 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
  • 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. Contact our nurse, Linda Kucinski, for questions at linda.kuciniski@cvesd.org.
  • 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!
