Message from Superintendent Dr. LeeAnn Aguilar-Lawlor (Friday, May 15th, 2020)

Dear Cartwright Families,

I want to take this moment to thank you!

We received over 1000 results and hundreds of comments on the Cartwright School District COVID-19 survey. I have read every comment. The COVID-19 Task force will form sub committees later this month. We will ask for parent volunteers to participate in these sub committees that will start in late May/early June. They will utilize the concerns, suggestions and ideas from you and staff members to formulate plans for a safe opening of school for the upcoming school year.

Next week is the last week of #ClosednotClosed school. Despite all the challenges and hard work, it's incredible that we have made it this far. I look forward to seeing the 8th grade promotions ceremonies next week.

We plan on sending a letter home to families soon regarding summer plans and other pertinent information, including the opportunity to allow your children/our students to continue using technology to continue to learn from home.

Thank you for being an amazing partner in your child's education. We recognize how difficult it has been to do what you have done these past several weeks. We are extremely grateful. We have learned a lot together.

I also realize this pandemic is not over and we still have lots of unanswered questions. However, we will have a strong plan based on state and federal CDC guidance with many options for our students come this August 3, 2020, our first day of school. We will get through these unprecedented and challenging times, safely and TOGETHER, as one team, una familia.


Dr. LeeAnn Aguilar Lawlor
Proud Superintendent
