Headphones would also be helpful. Please check with your child’s teacher for your child’s login information.

Childcare at Loma Verde

New Emergency Grants Now Available For Childcare Business Owners ...

Loma Verde will have childcare provided by the YMCA STRETCH program on site starting September 8. We understand that there are many families with childcare concerns, but we only have a limited number of spots (30) available. Families will be notified if they have been selected to receive childcare this week.

School Expectations for Distance Learning

Educators and parents share their thoughts on distance learning

Our school year will begin with online instruction on Aug. 31 at 8:00 am for all students, as campuses in CVESD remain closed due to the spread of COVID-19 across the community. Meanwhile, we continue to plan for the physical reopening of the school’s campus once it is safe to do so, with guidance from experts in science and public health.

Parents and families, Loma Verde School needs your help to set up kids for success this year. The students and staff at Loma Verde Elementary School believe that a safe and positive online environment is important to a child’s learning in the digital classroom.  To provide such an environment, Loma Verde Elementary School has established the following online norms and guidelines:

Students should be ready to learn when the school day starts.  This means your child should be “school-ready” and prepared for a day of learning at 8:00 am.  We recommend that your child is dressed and has eaten breakfast so that learning may start when the school day starts.  A computer and reliable internet connection and/or other materials such as paper, pencils, crayons or markers, books, and workbooks may be necessary to support your child’s work that day.  If you need a district-provided laptop or wifi hot spot device in order for your child to learn, please complete the online Computer Survey. The school will provide required learning materials in the coming days and weeks.

Check for updates from your child’s teacher via Class Dojo or email.  Two-way communication is important for your child’s success.  Teachers will share schedules and ways to access lessons and activities. Please ensure the school’s office has the most up-to-date phone number and email address for your family.  Please also check the school blog: https://lomaverdewildcats.org/. Updates are usually posted on Sundays.

Create a working schedule for your household that supports academic time.  You may need to ask others in the house to be mindful of a child’s learning.  You may need to re-arrange some furniture or ask other members of the household to use quiet voices.  If possible, please do not have students working in a bedroom. Some parents have expressed that having a headset or earpods with a microphone helps their child interact with focus in the live sessions.

Be healthy during distance learning.  Take breaks throughout the day for movement.  Students should drink water, eat a nutritious snack, use the bathroom, and stretch at breaks, as well as eat lunch at lunch time.  Promote physical activity and health.  Provide time for your child to do activities that are “off screen.”

Respect the privacy and learning of others.  Students and guardians/parents should not record (neither video, nor audio) or take photos/screenshots of live sessions or others in distance learning.  Online tools, such as video chats and messages, should only be used as directed by teachers and staff.

In addition, your child’s teacher may have other norms and guidelines to ensure student safety and privacy for all students.

Annual Parental Notification

Annual State and federal laws require that school districts notify parents/guardians of minor pupils of their parental rights (California Education Code Section 48980). Please see the district page regarding more information about this legal notification: LINK to Parental Notification

Monday, August 31 THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL FOR THE 2020 – 2021 – DISTANCE LEARNING! More information to come! Please note that California Compulsory Education Law requires everyone between the ages of six and eighteen years of age to attend school, except sixteen- and seventeen-year-olds who have graduated from high school or passed the California High School Proficiency Exam (CHSPE) and obtained parental permission to leave.

This fall, schools are being told to “offer in-person instruction to the greatest extent possible” according to AB-77, the education trailer bill accompanying the 2020-21 budget that legislators and Gov. Gavin Newsom agreed to this week. Schools can offer distance learning if ordered by a state or local health official, or for students who are medically at-risk or are self-quarantining because of exposure to Covid-19.
