    Dear Loma:


    My Top 3 Moments of the Week...

    1. Enjoying a dance party at lunch recess with Loma students. I got my Zumba workout!
    2. Seeing our friendly parent volunteers serve Choice Lunches from the new kitchen window in the gym at CT.
    3. Singing a new song with Ms. Lelake at the Friday Assembly.I wish she would teach me to play the ukulele!


    Loma Milk Program

    The milk program began on September 3rd. If you have chosen to buy Choice Lunch for one, two, or three days a week, you will only have to pay for the days your child does NOT receive Choice Lunch. Please note on the form (see below) how many days you would like your child to receive milk with the total amount due payable to Loma Prieta Elementary School District. Milk will be distributed 9/3/19 through 5/22/20. Please contact Raquel with any questions: r.marin@loma.k12.ca.us


    Dress Code Reminders (from the CT Handbook)

    5. All tops must have shoulder coverage of at least one finger.
    6. Hats and hoods may not be worn inside any building at C.T.E. Students will be given one warning and then hats will be taken away.
    7. Students may not wear belts with metal spikes or chains of any kind. They will be taken away.  Belts must be size appropriate and tucked into belt loops.
    8. No bathing suits may be worn at school.
    9. Any clothing item deemed inappropriate by any staff member, at any time, and students will be asked to change clothes or turn the item inside out.
