A Few Reminders About Attendance:

  2. Students should be lined up on the blacktop by 7:55 a.m. ready to start the day!
  3. We ask all parents to exit by the front office promptly by 8:00 a.m. so that we can secure the campus and lock the gates after the bell rings.
  4. Please plan family trips during school breaks.
  5. Great School attendance sets up students for success in their future workplace. 
  6. READ MORE on studies regarding school attendance.
  7. If they miss school, they miss out! Thank you for getting your child to school every day and on time!
  8. Guidelines for Returning to School after COVID Symptoms: A symptomatic person must have negative antigen (e.g. home test) or 1 negative PCR test and may return to school when the following have been met:
    • 24 hours fever-free without the use of fever-reducing medications
    • Symptoms improving
    • No new symptom onset
  9. Every school day counts!

PARKING, DROP-OFF, AND PICK-UP

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.

  • Please drive slowly!
  • If you must leave your car, park in the parking lot, not the bus loop.
  • Do not park in the crosswalk on Loma Lane.
  • NO dogs during arrival and dismissal.
  • Please do not park in RESERVED spaces, red curb, or the staff parking lot.
  • Red-marked areas are fire lanes and must be kept clear.
  • 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.
