Welcome to the 2021-2022 School Year!

Good morning Loma Portal families and welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am to begin another year with you all!  If you are new to Loma Portal, WELCOME!  You will not find another school with such a hard working and supportive staff paired up with an unbelievably warm and giving community.  I am looking forward to meeting you!  If you are a returning family, WELCOME BACK! Our school has missed you these past few months (which has absolutely flown by as usual!). The 2021-2022 school year will be a year full of excitement, that’s for sure.  We are well on the way towards reopening FULLY (although masks will be mandatory for all students, staff, and volunteers) and our campus will look and sound very similar to the pre-COVID Loma Portal.  Classrooms will be open for business as will our library, STEAM Lab, garden, and music program!  I can’t wait to get started.

I think we all feel a new sense of gratitude for everything now, whether it’s for the small things like seeing our relatives, hugging our friends, walking outdoors without a mask, or for bigger things like opening our schools in person this Fall. I am excited to open our school doors to all of our families who feel comfortable returning in person. I am looking forward to beginning the year TOGETHER with students walking through our gates and doors with backpacks and books with joyfulness and readiness in their hearts. It is going to be a great year!

Having said that, as always, health and safety will be our priority.  We are well aware that we are not completely finished with this pandemic.  Due to that, we will be following strict state, county, and district health guidelines that are aligned with recommendations from the California Department of Public Health. Please click HERE for more information. In addition, more health and safety information can be found on the SDUSD Nursing and Wellness website HERE.

I will be sending out more details regarding pick up/ drop off procedures, more specific Health/Safety protocols, bell schedules, volunteer policies, etc. soon.  In the meantime, keep checking our school website HERE for updates and enjoy the remainder of this beautiful summer!  Looking forward to seeing you all soon!  --MM
