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 7:30-8:00 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.
  • Kinder, 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.
  • Parents may come onto campus from 2:30-2:45 PM (1:00-1:15 minimum days) to pick up their child(ren). Please pick up your child outside the classroom and leave campus promptly. Gates will be locked at 2:45 PM and 1:15 PM on minimum days.
  • For everyone’s safety BE PATIENT, KIND, and CONSIDERATE.
