  1. Parking reminder….one of the issues we have been encountering since we reopened is cars being parked in front of our school (on Browning St.) during AM drop off and PM pick up times.  This area is clearly marked for PASSENGER LOADING only.  Parked vehicles makes it very difficult for other vehicles to pick up their children.  Please use this area for passenger loading only.  We THANK you!


  1. A health related note – we have received many questions about our school, district, and county’s policy on what happens when a student exhibits symptoms related to COVID 19.  If a child exhibits symptoms including:

Fever (100 degrees or higher), Chills, Fatigue, Sore throat, Headache, Cough/shortness of breath

Runny nose/congestion, Nausea/vomiting/diarrhea, Muscle/body aches, Loss of taste or smell

                The student will be sent home and/or needs to remain at home until either:

  1. The child is COVID tested and a negative test result is submitted to our Health Office
  2. A period of 10 days since the first symptom appeared passes

If your child tests Positive for COVID-19; your child is required to isolate at home and will not be permitted to return to Loma Portal Elementary School until the following conditions are met:

1. 10 days have passed since the symptom onset or test date.

2. Fever free for 24 hours without fever reducing medications.

3. Symptoms have improved
