At Loma Portal Elementary School, we believe in educating the entire child. This includes having a rigorous academic curriculum with high expectations, a strong character, and a healthy body. This website is dedicated to providing information to our families on all things related to nutrition, health, and wellness. In the coming months, our school will place an emphasis on healthy living for our students, staff, and families. Please help us accomplish this task by providing your child with a healthy diet, adequate sleep, 60 minutes of exercise daily, and limited screen time so they can come to school prepared for be their BEST. I look forward to a healthy 2019 here at LPE!
