Dear Loma Families:
I hope that as this last week has unfolded and with a long weekend, you have been able to find a more palatable routine. Thank you all for the continued support of our faculty and staff. Like many of you, many of them continue to put their lives and families back on solid ground after evacuations.

If you believe your family may be eligible for free and reduced price lunch, you are encouraged to read the attached information and complete an application.
