Parenting Resources for Raising Kids with DASH in mind

The Greater Good Science Center at UC Berkeley has created kid-friendly videos that share research-based insights to guide your kids toward making choices that serve the greater good. Mrs. Marrocco, our Loma Ridge Elementary Resource Counselor, thought these might be helpful tools for parents to use with their children at home. Please click here to access the website with all of the videos. Enjoy!

Parking Lot Safety

We appreciate your support in keeping our students and parents safe. The drop-off and pick-up of students is improving. As a reminder, please remain in your car when dropping off and picking up your student(s). If you feel that your student requires extra assistance, please park your car in the lot, assist your child and then escort him/her onto campus via the crosswalk. Loma Ridge staff on duty will remind drivers of the procedures for dropping off and picking up students when needed. Please listen to their guidance and understand that they are looking out for the safety of all as well as to maintain an efficient drop-off and pick-up of students. Our priority is to keep you and your children safe on our campus. Thank you in advance for your support!
