    Dear Loma and CT Parents and Guardians:


    Below is important information for you to note as we gear up for the new school year.


    Root Beer Float EventAugust 12th, 4:30 – 5:30 pm. Our wonderful Home and School Clubs have joined forces to scoop and pour tasty root beer floats on the grassy knoll behind the shared portable. Where is the knoll you might ask? It is between the gym and the Kindergarten playground. 


    Elementary class lists will be posted on the front of the gymnasium. Mrs. Bourque will be handing out partial schedules for middle school students in the same area.


    Opening Day of School – August 17th, 8:20 am – 12:30 pm. MINIMUM DAY


    ·    Parent welcome coffee in the Loma Forum for ALL parents – both schools.

    ·    No student lunch break that day. Pack a big snack as there will be time for kids to eat. 

     Note this correction   ***Loma and CT drop off at the curb on the far side of parking lot. Give yourself

            extra time. Left lane up the driveway is no stopping - through traffic only –

             to parking. Right lane is for drop off only – both schools. If you are walking

             your Loma student to class, please park in a legal spot. There is a lower dirt lot

             and parking across the street to use the pedestrian bridge. Do not drop off before

             8:00 am. 


    Parking Lot Etiquette – Please slow down and be patient with other drivers.

    ·      Never leave your car unattended in the drop-off or pick up area. 

    ·      Always watch for pedestrians.

    ·      Right lane up the driveway for drop off and pick up.

    ·      Left lane up the driveway for through traffic to parking areas.

    ·      Don’t cut in drop off or pick up lines. You won’t make friends that way!


    Transportation Update

    In order to alleviate the crowded conditions on the West bus we are very pleased to be able to add back one of the buses we had to cut a few years back.  If your child rides the West bus and lives on Old Santa Cruz Highway or the area across the highway, please check for the changed drop off times.  They will be approximately 25 minutes earlier.  If you have any questions regarding Transportation please contact Patty Smrt at p.smrt@loma.k12.ca.us.
