Dana Spencer, Principal

Dear Paloma Families,

We begin our first week away from school with many questions. In an effort to keep our families updated, we wanted to share the information we have available.

  • The Child Nutrition Services Department is preparing and providing nutritious “grab & go” style meals at all of our schools on a daily basis. Meals may be picked up at Paloma from 11:00 am - 1:00 pm Monday through Friday.  Here is a link for further information on food service:



  • We are thankful for the diligence  and swiftness of the school district for the decisions made to close schools. The fluidity of the situation makes it new territory when we plan for all facets of our students’ school lives. Families and students are encouraged to access SMUSD's Student Learning Activities tab located on the district website and also on our school website. We also sent home additional resources  and suggestions that are available to use.   The district will be distributing additional information soon regarding academic questions that have arisen.

  • You have undoubtedly heard the advice for social distancing. It is tempting to set up extra play-dates and social opportunities for your kids at this time. I encourage you to reconsider these opportunities.

 Stay healthy, Panthers!
