FIREWORKS ARE NOT ALLOWED IN VALLEJO

BE SAFE!

The Vallejo Fire and Police Departments are requesting that all residents in the City of Vallejo and East Vallejo Fire Protection District (EVFPD) areas know that all fireworks are prohibited in the City and EVFPD "County" areas except for the professional shows at the Waterfront and Six Flags Discovery Kingdom on the 4th of July.

The Vallejo Fire Department will be counting on support from our residents and guests to not purchase or use fireworks.  Each year we have many unnecessary injuries and fires that are attributed directly to fireworks.  Fireworks can be extremely dangerous and cause extensive property damage.

For additional information, please contact the Fire Prevention Division at 707-648-4565.
Thank you for your continued support and from all of us here at the CIty of Vallejo, please enjoy a safe Fourth of July.

Rainier and Olympic Streets Have Been Paved

Our streets are smooth!!! The VCUSD has completed the paving project to fix the street that loops around Loma Vista!     The project took two weeks and has been completed and painted. Please remember that both Rainier and Olympic are one-way streets.  Please do not drive into the school from Corccoran on Olympic - YOU will be going the wrong way!  The only legal way to get to the cafeteria or middle school side of the campus is to drive into the campus on Rainier and go around the farm.  Please watch out for children, adults, and animals.

Congratulations Loma Vista!

The Masonic Naval Lodge #87 has chosen Loma Vista ESA as the Public Schools Week Scholarship Recipient!  We were nominated and supported by Mr. Harold Bettman, and the Naval Lodge presented LVESA Principal Britt Hammon with a $500 at the April 12, 2017 Governing Board Meeting.  The Naval Lodge Members will soon be visiting Loma Vista to learn more about the great things happening at Loma Vista.  It's a great time to be an Owl!

Principal Britt Hammon

Principal HammonHello Friends and Family,

There are many things which make Loma Vista Environmental Science Academy a special place for learning. We remain committed to working together as a TEAM (Together Everyone Achieves More), to utilize the knowledge and skills each Team member possesses, to communicate, and to partner effectively with parents to ensure their child's success in school. Our vision continues to be to create a learning community where every child will achieve to his/her highest potential. Loma Vista is a safe place where children are free to learn, grow, make mistakes and learn from these mistakes. We provide a challenging program to all students in a caring way, with support systems for all levels.

We are very pleased with the progress we have made developing as an Environmental Science Academy over the last four years.  All classes and students visit the Loma Vista Farm each week and participate in hands-on cooking, animal care, vegetable farming, and science lessons taught by their Teachers, Farmer Rita, Farmer Alisha, and sometimes the Principal!

Loma Vista is also home to only one of two working farms in the country. The Loma Vista Farm is an outdoor classroom that provides children with standards based hands-on learning opportunities to bolster their academic skills in reading, writing, math, social science, language arts and science. To learn more about the farm, please visit the Loma Vista Farm website which can be found on the top of this page. For your convenience, the farm website is http://www.lomavistafarm.org.

We are very lucky to have a dedicated STEAM lab for our students in grades K-5.  Our students work on long-term projects which incorporate Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. LVESA has won STEAM awards two years in a row. We have Mrs Imelda Enos and Ms. Dajah Lewis who work with our students and classroom teachers.

When choosing a school for your children, please consider Loma Vista.  As a K-8 school we are able to offer a close-knit family-centered school which offers many supports to students and families.  Our Academic Support Provider, Carmen Cassius, is our school-community link who works to remove all barriers to student success. 

Looking forward to our Partnership,

Britt Hammon, Principal

It's always a great day to be an Owl!
