Courtesy Notice

Hello Loma Verde Families and Staff,

This is a courtesy notice sent to all school community members by email.  Our campus is very safe and our safety procedures appear to be working.

Anytime there is a case of COVID-19, it is a good reminder to review our safety measures… Please continue to mask up, maintain physical distancing when possible, and wash your hands/sanitize the spaces you use.  It is also recommended that all staff use air filtration devices (with the timers and set to use the ionizer feature).  A friendly reminder that if anyone (staff or student) presents with any symptom of COVID-19 at school, they must go home.

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea

Out of an abundance of caution and in alignment with California state law, I am hereby informing you that the District learned an individual at school tested positive for the virus that causes COVID-19. This individual is currently in isolation and all staff members and students who may have been affected have already been contacted.

If you have not already been notified that you are a close contact by me or Nurse Linda, at this time, you are NOT considered a close contact with a person who recently tested positive for the virus.

Please read the attached letter from the district’s Emergency Preparedness Office regarding an individual who tested positive for COVID-19 recently and was on Loma Verde’s campus on 11/5/21.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school office at (619) 420-3940.

Warmly,

Bree Watson, Principal

The Wildcat Way – Nov. 8-12, 2021 (Week #15)

thank you veterans

Send the completed form by email to lomaverdeschool@cvesd.org or drop it off to the school office Monday-Friday between 7:30-4:00. This form was emailed to parents/guardians.

Reminder: Students are to attend school every day for the ENTIRE day unless they are sick or in quarantine. Please do not take your child out of school early unless you have a scheduled doctor’s visit. Leaving early or arriving late will affect their attendance. Please provide a note for doctor or dentist visits to the attendance health office.

Note: Every time a student is absent (sick or not sick), the parent/guardian must report the reason for the absence by calling the school at 619-420-3940 or sending an email lomaverdeschool@cvesd.org.
