    Dear Loma Families,

     

    My Top Three Moments of the Week (at Virtual School)

    1. Enjoying a surprise “Zoom Bomb” visit from Corey Kidwell in Mrs. Denues last Zoom class. She almost didn’t get admitted, because we didn’t recognize the screen name: Colorado Corey!
    2. Seeing several end-of-year slideshows in closing Zoom meetings. Lots of tears on my part!
    3. Getting to catch up with some of my colleagues, in person, for the first time since March 13, all with masks on and six feet apart, of course!

     

    Pick-Up/Drop-off Procedures (June 1-4)

    We have developed a system whereby students will be able to pick-up items that they may have left at school as well as return borrowed items such as textbooks, library books and sports uniforms.
