Incident at Saugus High School

Dear Lancer Community,

It is with all sincerity and sadness that I write to you today as another school shooting occurred this morning at Saugus High School.

We continue to work with our dedicated School Resource Officer, campus supervision and District Office to provide a safe environment for all students, staff and community. Our mental health and counseling staff intervene on behalf of students when any sort of challenge or adversity arises. Most importantly, the manner in which we treat one another is the most vital component to creating a safe environment for all. I have urged all of our Lancers that every relationship matters and investing into another person is one of the greatest gifts one can give. We strive to create a culture where all of our students know they have caring adults and peers they can trust and rely upon.

In our continued efforts to create a safe learning environment for your student, we have developed a comprehensive plan to respond to emergencies on or around the school campus. We will be conducting a fire drill on Tuesday, November 19. This drill ensures that students are staff are familiar with the school's emergency procedures. Please contact the office if you have any questions or would like additional information.

Message from the Superintendent

September 5, 2019

Dear El Rancho Community,

As your Superintendent, I am committed to the safety and well-being of all students and staff. Yesterday, I informed parents, families and staff via email regarding the recent newspaper article that there has been water testing in the City of Pico Rivera. The Pico Water District and the Water Authority have stated that the recent newspaper article may have caused some confusion with the public about the water quality in the City of Pico Rivera.

Therefore, even if the water is deemed to be safe by the Pico Water District and the Water Authority, as well as other regulatory agencies, the El Rancho Unified School District has taken measures to be proactive in our schools. Our Maintenance and Operations team is currently visiting all school campuses and district offices to identify each water fountain as we will be installing water filters at all school and district office locations.

Please be reassured that the El Rancho Unified School District is taking all the necessary precautions to ensure that our students and staff have access to safe drinking water now and in the future.


Frances Esparza, Ed.D.
