A Weekly Newsletter From Mrs. Berumen

Calendar Adjustment & Open House

Open House is scheduled for Thursday, April 29th. When we created the calendar for this year, we had hoped to have the event in person. Unfortunately, we are unable to do that safely at this time. However, we are excited to showcase our students and classrooms by providing an Open House video for you to view when it is convenient for your family. The link will be provided via email on April 29th.

Due to the change in format for the event, we have elected to adjust the minimum day originally scheduled for Open House preparation to a day that we thought would be more desirable for our Loma Ridge families and staff. Please adjust your calendars to note these changes.

Thursday, April 29th: Regular Day schedule

Friday, May 28th: Minimum Day schedule (grades 1-5 will be dismissed at 1:25 pm)

IUSD Stimulus Funds Input Survey

The Irvine Unified School District (IUSD) would like to gather stakeholder input to determine priority actions for using Federal and State stimulus funds through a Stimulus Funds Input Survey. The survey is now open through April 23.

The District would like to encourage our families, staff and students to take a moment to complete this important survey. Your responses are critical in providing feedback about in-person instruction supports and learning recovery for students including academic, behavioral, and social emotional supports and where State and Federal COVID-19 Relief Stimulus Funds may be focused starting this summer and through the next school year.

This interactive process helps IUSD identify priority areas and take action on those identified priorities as part of the COVID-19 recovery process for our district. To take the parent survey now, click here.

Roadrunner Staff Spotlight

Hi Roadrunners! I am Lindsay Sandifer and I have been teaching for eight years . However, for the last 5 I have been in Kindergarten. What I love most about teaching is the interactions with my students. I love learning from them and helping them make connections to the real world.

I grew up in Southern California and currently live in San Clemente with my family. I live with my husband and my three little kids. I have two sons, Wyatt (4) and Wade (2) and one daughter named Sienna (1). When I am not teaching, I enjoy going on hikes or being at the beach with my family. If we could we would spend every day at the beach. We love to be outdoors and enjoy all the sunshine we get here in California!
