Loma Verde is Celebrating Read Across America 2/27-3/3

Loma Verde Elementary will celebrate National Read Across America Day on March 3rd. Here are some tips for parents for reading to your children. Reading to and with your children throughout elementary school is one of the best ways to support them as readers.


Hello Families,

We are raising money for the SouthBay YMCA. Please consider donating to this worthwhile program that benefits our students and community.

The top 3 classes that raise the most money for our COIN DRIVE/ONLINE GIVING will get a 45-minute water-themed Field Day put on by the YMCA staff.

Each classroom will have an envelope for money collection. ALL MONEY IS DUE BY FRIDAY, 3/10. Families can also donate online with the link below or use the QR code. Please include your child’s name and room number in the comments if you are donating online.

Please help us reach our goal of $500 to help support the YMCA. Every little bit helps, even a few dollars! Donations go toward the STRETCH program, camps, scholarships, and other beneficial YMCA programs for our community. You can share the link or picture with family and friends. Use the QR code to easily access the donation page. We greatly appreciate all the YMCA does to support Loma Verde families and the community. Thank you!

CVESD ThoughtExchange Survey is Now Open!

Our annual ThoughtExchange for community input on the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) is now open! Please see the flyer (in English and Spanish) for more information. This year, we are asking the question: What are some things we are doing well, and what could improve the educational experience we provide students through the LCAP? 

The LCAP shapes our District’s goals and guides our budgeting priorities at both the district and school levels. Please join in on the conversation from Feb. 1 through April 1, 2023. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions. Thank you!

Zone Transfers and Registration Information

It’s that time again! Everyone attending Loma Verde Elementary on a CVESD Zone Transfer received an email during the last week of January with a specific link to renew the Zone Transfer for their child for the 2023-2024 school year.  Please complete this Zone Transfer (or ZT) process ASAP to keep your child at our school, or families risk losing their child’s spot at our school if a new family moves into the neighborhood. Please also remember that a Zone Transfer or Intradistrict Transfer may be denied if a child’s behavior or attendance needs improvement.

NEW STUDENT registration began on February 15 online for the following:

  • Kindergartners who will be 5 years old on or before September 1, 2023.
