September Updates

Good morning Loma Portal families!!  The 2021-2022 school is off to a great start! And we can all feel the excitement around campus now that your children are back at school.  Our staff and I THANK YOU for sharing them with us.  It has been a busy few days but the smiles on your children’s faces make it all worth it.  Please see below for some important updates.  Have a wonderful day!  --MM


1. COVID Testing Form: In order to keep our students and staff safe, our district is offering free weekly COVID testing for all non-symptomatic students and staff.  This is OPTIONAL. Testing would be done by medical staff and would happen during the school day on our campus.  In order to plan for this, SDUSD is asking that ALL families either opt in or opt out for this program.  Opting in means that your child would be briefly pulled from class every WEDNESDAY morning to do a quick nasal swab COVID test.  Results would be shared with you ASAP.  There is no penalty for opting out of testing.  For more information and to learn how to access the “Opt In/Out” survey online, click HERE.  Paper copies will also be sent home this week. If you haven’t done so already, please take a moment to complete this important document!


**In addition, our district is offering Parent Q & A Sessions about our District's COVID testing procedure on Sept 1 and Sept 8 5:30-6:30pm via Zoom (Zoom ID 896 9468 5040).


2. In case you need support creating a Powerschool Parent Portal account click HERE.  You can access the COVID testing survey there and we also use the Powerschool Parent Portal to distribute grades and other information.


3. This year, our annual Fall Open House (aka “Back to School Night”) will be offered virtually through Zoom.  This exciting event will occur on Thursday Sept 9 5:30-6:30pm.  Specific Zoom links will be sent to you directly from your child’s classroom teacher.


4. Please keep an eye out for our Welcome Back packets which will be sent home with your child this week.  This packet will contain information from our Foundation, our Health Office, and our School District.
