Weekly Update

November 19, 2021


The mission of Loveland elementary school, in partnership with our actively involved community, is to promote excellence and instill a desire for learning by challenging each individual within a safe, supportive environment.

Loveland's Expectations

Be Safe

Be Respectful

Be Responsible

Dear Loveland Families,

As we enter the winter months, please remember to have your children check the lost and found. We tend to get many items left over the noon hour, and I know these items easily get lost during transition or recess times. Please feel free to stop in after school if you would like to look for some lost items!

Thank you again for your continued support of our school. As we approach Thanksgiving, I am thankful for such a caring community, and specifically for you giving us your children to be part of our school.

Ms. Hornung

Vocal Music News

IN PERSON vocal music concerts are back! Our 4th, 5th, and 6th grade concert will take place on Thursday, December 16 at 7:00 pm at Westside Middle School. Due to the uncertainties of everything going on right now and out of an abundance of caution, each grade level will be performing songs individually so students can be more spread out on the risers. Per district policy, all students and guests are required to wear masks to this event. Your students have been working hard and are looking forward to sharing their songs with you soon!

As we head into the third week of our TAGG for Loveland fundraiser, we are happy to report that we currently have 75$ in our TAGG account. We are confident that we will make our $500 goal by December 8. As a reminder, all funds will go to the Loveland holiday fund to help families in need.

Did you know you can upload receipts not only from Hy-Vee and U-Stop, but from a number of local businesses [drive.google.com]? You simply download the app, upload your receipt, and raise money for Loveland. Between November 8 and December 17, we have the goal of raising $500.

For more information on how to TAGG, check out this short video [youtu.be].

COVID Vaccination Clinics

The Douglas County Health Department has asked us Westside and other area school districts to share the following link regarding upcoming COVID-19 vaccination clinics for children ages 5-12 who may now be eligible to receive it.


Westside Community Schools is also hosting a COVID-19 vaccination clinic on Saturday November 20 at Westside Middle School, 8601 Arbor Street. Our site will be open from 10:00am until 2:00pm; this is a walk-in clinic and appointments are not needed. This site is open to children ages 5 through 11, as well as those 12 years and older interested in receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. A second dose vaccine clinic is scheduled for December 11 from 10:00am until 2pm, also at Westside Middle School

We understand this a personal choice for your family and encourage you to discuss at home and with your family doctor. For additional information about Westside’s response and protocols related to the COVID-19 pandemic, please visit this link on our website: https://www.westside66.org/domain/408

Wednesday Dismissal

Every Wednesday we will end the school day at 3:00 pm instead of 3:30 pm. This gives our teachers throughout the District collaboration time by attending weekly professional learning communities. Please plan accordingly to pick your child up at 3PM.

Mark your calendars to join us for the 2022 Battle of the Books on March 19, 2022 at Westside Middle School!
