Our Loma Back-To-School night was a great success! It was wonderful to see our parent community in person. Thank you to those who could make it in person. If you were unable to attend, reach out to your child’s teacher for the information you missed.

NEWS AND INFORMATION
No Dogs on Campus
Dogs are not allowed on our school campuses. This is particularly true during drop-off, pick-up and during school hours. While we love dogs, we have several students who are allergic and/or afraid of dogs. For the health and safety of all our kids and your dogs, please leave them off campus or at home.
Our campus is closed to the public from 7:30am to 4:30pm. We have students on campus for school or day care during these hours.
There is no supervision for students arriving for school before 8:10am. Supervised morning/before school recess begins at 8:10am. Before School recess is a black-top only recess. The equipment and field are very wet and slippery in the morning.
Parent Volunteer Update
Parent volunteers will be welcomed into our learning spaces very soon. Please note that all in-person volunteers will be required to provide proof of Covid vaccination and a clear TB assessment and/or test. Additionally, all volunteers are required to check in at the appropriate school office when arriving to campus and before entering classrooms or other school spaces.
We are currently looking for vaccinated volunteers to supervise lunch recess. 11:20-12:00 at the Loma 1-5 playground and/or the kindergarten playground. If you are interested in helping 1 or more days a week, please contact Billy Martin.
Frequent absences from school are cause for concern. Students who miss just one or two days of school each month risk falling seriously behind. Being absent from school can lead to significant problems. Students who miss many days of school are more likely to fail classes, drop out from school, and have poor relationships with parents, teachers, and peers. Please remember that every absence matters. If you need support with your child’s attendance, please reach out to your child’s teacher or to Billy Martin. Thank you for supporting your child in their attendance at school.
If your child needs to be absent from school, please notify your child’s teacher(s) and the appropriate school office.
