    Dear Loma Parents/Guardians:

     

    Our parking lot at pick-up continues to be a challenge. Please, please be patient when you arrive to campus to pick up your child(ren). Rainy days tend to be especially challenging. At pick-up, remember that the right lane is for picking up if you only have a CT student. The left lane is dual purpose. The left lane is for picking up at Loma Elementary OR to access the lower parking lot. Because there are cars in the left lane for pick up, it is not a through lane until you get to the top of the hill. Both lanes will stop and back up! Consider picking up across the bridge or letting your child ride the bus. Thank you for being kind with each other in the parking lot and respecting the directions of our staff who are at the crosswalks and directing traffic.

    Enjoy tomorrow’s Veterans Day holiday break. Thank you for your service to all of our military service men and women and their families.

    Billy Martin, Principal

    Loma Prieta JUSD

    ATTENDANCE REMINDER

    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.

    HEALTH AND WELLNESS REMINDERS

    The cold wet weather brings with it cold and flu season. As we settle into our wet months we want to remind you of a few things:

    1. If your child does not feel well, please do not send them to school. If they exhibit any signs/symptoms related to Covid, students will be sent home. Students must be symptom free with no medication (no fever or vomiting for 24 hours) for 24 hours prior to returning to school.
    2. Medications, including over the counter products, cough drops, and homeopathic remedies are not allowed to be self-administered by students. Please do not send these products to school with your child.
    3. The Daily Home Symptom Screening should be completed each day in PowerSchool prior to the arrival of your child.
    4. Login into your Parent Portal of PowerSchool (parents new to LPJUSD will receive information on how to set up your account)
    5. Click on Forms in the left-hand navigation menu
