Principal Update March 24, 2021

Reopening Announcements

Good afternoon LPE families!  Very exciting things going on here at Loma Portal these days! Thank you for your patience as we prepare our school for our REOPENING on April 12th.  I wanted to share some preliminary information with you all to help you in planning as we get closer to April.  There will be more details coming out soon, but in the document below, you will find information about school start and end times, what lunch will look like, and the flow of the day.  I am also including some important reminders and updates. Looking forward to seeing many of you on campus soon!  As always, please let me know if you have questions.

  1. Spring Break will be observed 3/29-4/2. All SDUSD will be closed.
  2. Please keep in mind that all Learning Labs and Teacher Appointments (Appt Based Learning) will end on Friday March 26th.
  3. Photo Day has been rescheduled for 4/21.  Students who are on campus will be getting their photo taken with their class on campus. Students who are remaining at home will also have access to Photo Day.  Details for this will be sent out soon.
  4. THANK YOU parents for submitting your Instructional Model Choice surveys!  We are now missing surveys for less than 2% of our students.  If we still need a survey for your child, you received a phone call and email yesterday.
  5. 2nd Trimester grades are now available in Powerschool Parent and Student Portal! For support with accessing your child’s grades, click HERE.
  6. The week of April 5th will be a preparation week for our staff members.  We need to make sure our school is prepped and ready for your children on April 12th! During this week, your children will have access to 2 hours of synchronous work with their teacher and 2 hours of asynchronous daily. Daily schedules will be sent to you from your child’s teacher.
  7. Our reopening plan is coming together nicely and I am happy to report that we will be able to offer a 6 hour instructional school day Monday-Thursday for our on campus students.  Please click on this “Reopening FAQ” document HERE for more information.

I will be sending more details out soon so please monitor your emails.  I am also scheduling a Principal’s Coffee on Monday 4/5 at 4pm.  At this time, I will present some updated information to families regarding the reopening process and answer questions.  The Zoom link is below.  If you cannot make it to this meeting, I will be recording it.  I have also created a “Parent Q&A” document HERE.  Please feel free to add questions to this.  I will answer as many questions as I can before and during the Principal’s Coffee and will post this document on our website.

  1. Since our TK and Kindergarten students have not had the opportunity to spend much time on our beautiful campus this year, our amazing TK and Kinder teachers will be hosting brief tours on Thursday 4/8 in order to prepare our youngest learners for life at LPE.  Keep an eye out for communications directly from your child’s teacher for specific times.
  1. In order to prepare all of our other NEW students (students who enrolled at LPE during the 2020-2021 schoolyear), I will be hosting a brief tour for all NEW students in Grades 1-4 and their families on Friday 4/9 at 3pm.  If you are interested in attending, please RSVP to [email protected].  You can meet me outside of our Auditorium that day. Social distancing rules will be strictly enforced and masks will be mandatory.


Have a great afternoon everyone!  --MM
