The Wildcat Way Dec. 12-16, 2022 (Week #19)

Hello Loma Verde Families!

This is the last week of school before our Winter Break! We are excited for our Loma Verde Festive Spirit Week and lots of learning! We wish everyone happy holidays and a restful winter break. Don’t forget students return on Tuesday, January 10 for a minimum day (1:00 dismissal for TK-6th grade).

New Report Cards for Quarter 2

This quarter the district has created a new Progress Report (report card) for reporting grades. There will be a revised rubric utilized by teachers to identify your child’s progress toward the grade-level standards throughout the year. To assist with helping families understand the changes to the reporting process, we will be sending home resources and a parent guide to accompany the updates with the report card. We hope you find the updates beneficial to understanding your child’s academic progress throughout the year. Here is the English Parent Guide to Understanding Progress Reports and Spanish Parent Guide to Understanding Progress Reports . You may reach out to your child’s teacher if you have further questions. Reports will be sent home by the end of the quarter on Friday, December 16, 2022.

PTO Holiday Shop is Here!

The PTO Holiday Shop is continuing this week at Loma Verde! It will be open through Friday, December 16 in the library. This is an opportunity for students to purchase inexpensive gifts for their friends and family. All the proceeds go to the Loma Verde PTO and benefit all of our scholars.

  • LET’S IMPROVE OUR ATTENDANCE AT LOMA VERDE!
  • Students should only miss school if they are sick. Those with symptoms can return with a negative Covid test, no fever for 24 hours without fever-reducing medication, and symptoms improving. STUDENTS DO NOT NEED TO BE SYMPTOM-FREE to attend school. We have plenty of rapid tests at school–just ask in the office. If you have a special circumstance and need an independent study, please let us know.
  • Please make sure your child is here by 7:55 a.m. and lined up on the blacktop (1st-6th grade) or by the classroom (TK-kinder). If they arrive after 8:00, they will be marked tardy.
  • We begin a secure campus at 8:00 a.m. Parents/guardians must exit promptly at 8:00. Thank you.
  • Students can arrive as early as 7:15 a.m.
  • FREE breakfast is served 7:15 a.m. to 7:45 a.m.

  • Absences that are not reported will be considered UNEXCUSED. After 3 unexcused absences and/or tardies you will receive a truancy letter.
  • If you pick up your child/children early and/or they are tardy for personal reasons this is considered unexcused.
  • Remember to bring a doctor’s note. Vacations, dentist, and doctor visits should be scheduled during our breaks whenever possible.
  • If your child misses school, they are missing out on important learning! 
  • Our school staff will be scheduling SART (School Attendance Review Team) meetings with parents/guardians, calling home, and doing home visits for students who are chronically absent (missing 10% of school or excessive tardies).
  • Thank you for helping to get your child to school every day and one time!
