We are so excited for the start of the new school year. Here is a video message from our Superintendent.

Parents and students in preparation for the first day of school, we want to make sure your technology devices are ready and working. Please make sure you turn them on this weekend before Monday morning and test their internet connectivity. Once connected to the internet, the devices will start to receive updates that are needed for you to start your Distance Learning on Monday.

If you have any issues or concerns please don't hesitate to contact your school. We are here to support you and your students!

Dear Parents and Families,

I want to welcome you to the Cartwright School District and thank you for entrusting your child’s education to us. The COVID-19 pandemic was unprecedented and will continue to be a challenge as we plan for the 2020-2021 school year. Our schools will continue to provide robust instruction with distance learning options. Your child will be exposed to tremendous opportunities that include college and career-ready programs to prepare our scholars to be globally ready, that focus on foreign language, a strong STEM education, and Social-Emotional Learning, as well as extracurricular activities.

This school year, we will continue with our Dual Language Program which now has expanded to two of our school, Starlight Park Elementary School and Bret R. Tarver Elementary School. A Dual Language Program fosters bilingualism, biliteracy and high levels of academic achievement through instruction in two languages, English and Spanish.

Cartwright School District continues to find ways to support our families. This year we have moved to a 4-day school week with Fridays being a Flexible Learning Day for students. Teachers will assign extra practice for students according to their specific needs. At our school sites and District Office, Fridays will be designated as a deep cleaning day; however, we will do everything possible to ensure student and staff safety by disinfecting daily. When it is safe to return to in-person school at our school sites, we will continue to offer free before school care at all schools as well as minimal cost daycare on Fridays.   

Because of the unprecedented nature of the pandemic, we want to thank you in advance for your understanding and flexibility as COVID-19 guidance continues to change; however, our dedication to your children remains a priority.

We are “One Team, Una Familia!” and we take great pride in serving our community and our students all year long!
