The Wildcat Way – April 4-8, 2022 (Week #30)

Welcome Back to School, Wildcats! We hope you had a safe and fun Spring Break! Students return for a MINIMUM DAY on Monday, April 4. Kindergarten-6th grade dismissal is at 1:00.

Take-Home COVID Tests for Spring Break

Loma Verde Elementary School distributed take-home COVID-19 tests to families before spring break.  

We ask that you please use this test on Sunday, April 3 before returning to school. While there is no statewide testing mandate for students returning to school, we highly encourage you to use the kits to test your children for COVID-19 before returning from the spring break on April 4, 2022, to help keep in-person school safe for everyone.

Instructions are available by video and as an insert in the box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qBt_H4Gc-rU
