Roadrunner Staff Spotlight

Hi! I'm Amy Comestro and I teach primary music at Loma Ridge. I grew up in Syracuse, NY and love going to visit my family and friends there! I always knew I wanted to keep music in my life, so becoming a music teacher was an easy decision. I went to Ithaca College and learned everything I could about music and education. When I’m not teaching, I love to go on hikes and go to the beach with my family. I have two sons in high school who also love music but their favorite thing to do is play football! They play together at Santa Margarita High School and I love watching them play. You will always find me in the stands cheering them on!

A Message from Nurse Arya

IUSD supports a 10 day quarantine for families who travel out of state. Absences related to voluntary quarantine are excused and students will complete asynchronous work while they are home. Please see the CDPH January 6th Travel Advisory notice for state recommendation.

Please note that Covid testing immediately following travel may not reflect the true extent of exposure to Sars-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19 as the virus can take 5-14 days to incubate within the body before a person can test positive. Please consider the voluntary quarantine as a way to assist us in promoting a safe and healthy environment for students and staff. For local testing click on the link provided: IRVINE-COVID Testing

For additional questions please feel free to contact our school nurse Jeannine Arya at jeanninearya@iusd.org or our health office assistant Saba Karim at sabakarim@iusd.org .
