Reminder of dismissal procedure:

1. All students who are not in Room 7 are picked up in the upper parking lot. Students are to go to upper parking lot by way of the stairs/ramp by ESS. Students may not go to the upper parking lot by way of the sidewalk in front of the school unless they are accompanied by the adult picking them up or an older sibling who is not enrolled at Pomerado. This has been the rule/policy since at least 1996.

2. The only students who are picked up in front of the school on a regular basis are SPED students. We also have parents with reserved parking spaces (Foundation) and handicapped placards.

3. Parents cannot come up the wrong side of the street to go into the upper parking lot or to park in the spaces in front of the office. Open spaces in front of the office afterschool are saved for district personnel or parents who are arriving for an IEP or other afterschool meeting.

4. Students should not be loaded into cars in the red zone in front of the school, in the middle of the roundabout, or double park to pick up students. Other drivers are intent on going home or to their next destination and are not watching for stopped cars in the middle of the street. There are also two other driveways feeding into the traffic flow (the new meditation center and the preschool) and those drivers are often in a hurry.


Consistent enforcement of the rules will help maintain a safe environment.

Character Counts! at Pomerado

Kate Budd

Please vote for Kate Budd .  It is very easy!

She has been nominated for the DonorNation Volunteer of the Year Award.  Her passion and dedication are evident throughout our school. Let’s show her our appreciation by voting for her, and if she wins our school will receive $5000. 

If our School receives the prize money, what will the funds be used for?

Winning the prize money would help support three new extracurricular activities The  chess club,  folkloric dance troupe, and  we want to send 5 top spellers to an inter-school spelling bee. All these programs are currently 100% volunteer-driven, and supplies are from donations. With $5,000, we could buy costumes, team shirts, awards, pay tournament fees, invite guest speakers/performers and part-time coaches.  Our goal is to help develop well-rounded students both academically, physically and creatively. The prize money would be a tremendous support of this ambition.

It is very easy to vote.  Go to

After you register (name and e mail) You only can vote only once, so please tell every body you know to vote for Kate


"Safety drop off- pick up"


Hello Pomerado Families!

It is a great pleasure to serve as your new principal at Pomerado Elementary School. My dream and vision for our school is for each and every one of our students to receive a most memorable and successful educational experience that will encourage them to strive to achieve and to be active members of their community as they progress towards college and adult life. We value and continue to acknowledge the importance of developing character through a focus on the 6 Pillars of Character.  Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. expressed it perfectly: "Intelligence plus character- that is the goal of true education."

Luis Ortiz, Ed. S. - Principal
