Hello Loma Verde Families and Staff,

On behalf of the entire school staff, we wanted to thank our community for your generosity and thoughtfulness during our Staff Appreciation Week. We were overwhelmed by the outpouring of signs of affection for our team (sweets, food, flowers, notes, etc). We certainly felt very appreciated! Thank you!

State & Local Testing Continues This Week!

If you have a special circumstance and need an independent study, please let us know.

  • Remember to bring a doctor’s note. Vacations, dentist, and doctor visits should be scheduled during our breaks whenever possible.

  • 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!
