Monday Announcements

Good afternoon LPE families! Happy Monday!  I hope you are all enjoying your December so far….always a very busy time of year but a very fun one nonetheless.  These few weeks between the Thanksgiving and Winter Breaks are always action packed here at LPE and the energy around campus is running high!  Our students are working hard though as we gear up for the Winter Break and the mid-point of the school year in January. Going by too fast!  Have a wonderful week everyone.  Please see below for some important updates.

  1. Please keep in mind that Friday 12/17 is a MINIMUM DAY.  School will dismiss at 12:35pm that day. There will be an additional MINIMUM DAY on Wednesday 1/26.
  2. Our upcoming Winter Break is 12/20-12/31 (all SDUSD schools will be closed). School will reopen on Monday 1/3.
  3. Our annual Holiday Food Drive is up and running! Please donate your food items and gift cards at the Kinder gate or front of the school every morning! These items will be going directly to some of our Loma Portal families who are in need this holiday season. We thank you in advance for giving some Loma Portal Love to our LP families!
  4. In light of recent events nation-wide, I wanted to make sure you all knew that LPE CARES about the well-being of our students, families, and staff members. We are HERE for you.  Loma Portal has an outstanding counseling staff. Our School Counselor, Mrs. Moriel, is on campus every Wednesday and Friday.  We also have an amazing Guidance Assistant, Mrs. Cannon, who is on campus every day.  They run campus wide events focusing on social/emotional well-being, including monthly assemblies targeting various Character Traits (December is GENEROSITY month!).  Our counseling team also provides classroom, small group, and individual support as needed as well.  If you think your child could use some additional social/emotional support, please let me know.  We are here to help! You can also view our district’s Social/Emotional Support page HERE. Our school’s Character Education webpage, including areas of focus for each month, can be found HERE. I encourage you to check it out and reinforce our Character Ed program at home.  Your child will thank you for it!
Please continue to check our school website and calendar (located HERE) for updates and events!
