Message from Superintendent Dr. LeeAnn Aguilar-Lawlor (Friday, March 27, 2020)

Dear Cartwright Familia,

We got through two weeks of #stayhomestaysafe. I know this is a very difficult time for everyone and I pray that when this is over, we will all come back to our amazing schools and everyone will be healthy and ready for the school year.

In the meantime, you should all be receiving learning packets in the mail. These packets will include school work for 2-3 weeks. If you do not receive a packet by next week, please call your school and let them know. We will ensure you receive one as soon as possible.

Great news! Your Cartwright family will be providing technology for all students in the upcoming weeks for the remainder of the school year. Although the Governor has not extended school closures beyond, April 10, 2020, I believe we are better off being prepared. Our Governing Board and I want you to have access to on-line learning now. More information on how we will safely provide the technology and internet service for our students will be coming soon.

Finally, we are continuing to provide meal distribution Monday-Friday at the same locations. Thank you for keeping to the norms of "social distancing" throughout. We must also remain at home for the majority of our time during this pandemic. We have to #flattenthecurve to keep our families safe.

I am so proud of our staff and students for all they are doing during our #ClosednotClosed status. You will be hearing from your schools soon about the support your teachers and instructional staff will be providing during the on-line learning process.


Dr. LeeAnn Aguilar-Lawlor
Proud Superintendent
