Principal's Message

Principal Message


What a wonderful Harvest Festival we had on Sunday. Thank you to all of our families that came out. We could not have asked for a more beautiful day and enjoyed hearing our students sing and enjoy the day. Special thanks to our PTA for all their planning and hard work to bring such a fabulous day to our school!


Congratulations to our Reflections winners. We have some extraordinarily talented students and are very proud of their efforts. While we can only send a few names forward to the next level, all of these students are winners for taking the time to create such original art, stories, photos, and film. We wish you good luck as you move on to the District level.


As we continue to share weekly, safety of our students is very important to us. Please review the following tips:


Carpool Reminders:


  • Display your name placard for the caller
  • Keep moving forward as space allows
  • Carpool pick up ends at 2:45 pm
  • After 2:45 pm please park and sign your child out from the MPR
  • Thank you for helping us keep students safe and traffic flowing


Safety Patrol:

  • 5th grade students selected and trained by LO staff to support students and families with arrival and dismissal from school.
  • Please be respectful of their efforts


Bike Rodeo:

  • October 29th   1:00 on Blacktop Grades K-2
  • November 5th 1:00 on Blacktop Grades 3-5


Students can come and get safety bike tips and have their bikes looked on the dates above. Students can bring their bikes after school to get checked out. Parents can bring the bikes at dismissal or if you bring in the morning please bring a lock-to-lock up the bike during the school day.


We do not want students running into the traffic to get to their cars. Help us keep our students safe.


Halloween: Yes, it is hard to believe however Thursday is our annual Halloween parade. We plan to start around 8:15 am. All students will go into their classrooms to settle in and have attendance taken. Parents will be able to find a spot in the designated areas on the blacktop. The DVHS band will play as we parade around the blacktop. We look forward to seeing all of you. All students in grades K-5 will parade on the blacktop.  Due to Halloween and dismissal at 1:00 for grades 1-5 there will be NO Run Club, Strings and Band classes this Thursday, October 30th.


Parents: if you plan on helping in the classroom for any parties or class activities, you need clearance from “Be A Mentor”.  Thank you for following the process. We do not like turning anyone away however we need you to be cleared if you will be working in LO classrooms.


Upcoming Field Trips:


4th graders: November 20th to San Juan Bautista

5th graders: November 12-14 and November 17-19 Camp Arroyo


To our families that celebrate Divali we hope you had a happy celebration and wish you well.


Have a wonderful week.
