Dear Parents and Families:

We’re excited to invite you to our upcoming Scholastic Book Fair this week. Hosted by our staff, this event is an opportunity for students of all ages to build their home libraries and further their love of reading. As always, all purchases benefit our school.

After missing out on many beloved traditions, our spring Book Fair will be a familiar, welcome, and safe event for our students. Here’s what you need to know about the Fair, which will take place from Monday, January 31st – February 4th at the Loma Verde Library.

Our Book Fair offers eWallet, a safe and secure alternative to cash. Simply create a free account to add funds and/or invite family and friends to contribute so your child can select their own books. Any unused funds can be spent at The Scholastic Store Online or to fund a future eWallet.

If you can’t make it to the Fair, then shop at our school’s Online Book Fair. All orders ship directly to your home, and shipping is free for book orders over $25. Your online orders will also benefit our school.

Visit our Book Fair homepage to learn more and get started with eWallet and online shopping: https://www.scholastic.com/bf/lomaverdeelementaryschool

We’re excited to celebrate our love of books together at the Book Fair. We look forward to seeing your child there!

Update regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus) | Humboldt County Office of  Education

Dear Loma Verde Families,

Thank you for your continued support of our school as we face this current surge of COVID-19 cases. We are working hard to support our students and their families during this surge.  If you have a COVID Positive Case in your home and need guidance on isolation/quarantine, please email covtest4@cvesd.org.  If you are reporting a positive case to us in the office, please email lomaverdeschool@cvesd.org.  As you can imagine, we are getting many emails about a range of needs.  We want to be sure that positive cases all go to one inbox, that way our whole team in the office can support.

Testing is still being offered in our district at both Hedenkamp and the District Office.  Testing has also expanded significantly to include the addition of testing at Clearview, Castle Park, and Eastlake. The district’s website, www.cvesd.org, is updated daily to reflect testing hours and locations.

Masks continue to be required on campus, for adults and students.  All adults (including families and staff) must be masked at all times.

If your child is experiencing any symptoms, please keep them at home and notify the school office at (619) 420-3940. If you have someone who is known positive in your household, please also keep your child home and notify the office.  Independent Study Contracts are available for students who have tested positive or who must isolate/quarantine.  We thank you for your patience and kindness towards our staff as we weather this surge together.

COVID-19 Questions and Information:

Testing Frequency | Genesis HealthCare

We are excited to share a new testing program that will be part of keeping our schools the safest in the state of CA. You received an email from COVID Clinic on Friday, 1/21/22. This is not spam. This is a permission slip to sign up your child for weekly testing beginning February 7th. This weekly testing will be provided in your student’s classroom by licensed health care professionals. This test will allow us to ensure that our students, staff, and community are safe and healthy. Please provide consent as soon as you receive it to assist us in keeping our schools open. You will be asked for your student’s ID number; this is the 6-digit number they use to log in to all district programs. (if you did not receive the email or need assistance, please contact k12@covidclinic.org)

REMINDERS:

  • Please DO NOT send your child to school with any type of symptoms.
  • DO NOT send your child to school if they live with someone who has tested positive.
  • If your child(ren) has/have symptoms (like cough and/or fever) or have been in contact with someone with COVID-19, please keep them home and use your test to see if they have COVID-19. In addition, in this case please call us before they return to school – even if the test is negative. More testing may be needed as the variants often cause people to test negative at the early onset of their infection.
  • Students can get attendance credit by completing an independent study. Please ask your teacher or office staff for a list of work to complete.
  • Go to cvesd.org to see the current Covid-19 testing schedule.

Updated Vaccination Information

Children 5 and up can be vaccinated against Covid-19. Please send completed (two doses of Pfizer) COVID-19 vaccination card copies to lomaverdeschool@cvesd.org to update school vaccination records. Children are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after the second Pfizer dose. Children who are fully vaccinated do not need to quarantine after exposure to a positive case IF we have vaccination records on file. Click here for information about where to get the COVID-19 vaccine.
