    WELCOME!! My name is Karen Orsua, I am an Educaation Specialist, in the Special Education department .  This is my fourth year teaching  at Cabrillo High School and I am very happy to be here.  I previously taught at Vandenberg Middle School in the Special Education Department. I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. My voicemail and email address are listed above.


    Senior project judging has been cancelled for this year's seniors.  The Senior Project Coordinator sent an email to all perspective judges.  It states in part:

    "In light of the recent school closure due to Covid-19, the CoronaVirus, Cabrillo High School has made the difficult, collective decision to cancel Senior Project Judging for the Cabrillo Senior Class of 2020. 

    Our seniors will continue to work on alternative projects to be presented in the English 12 classroom upon our hopeful return to school.  the hard work they have in their projects will be honored by the Cabrillo English teachers. " 


    The lesson plans are in the Assignments tab for English 11, English 12 and Environmental Science.  The students were sent the assignments to their school emails.  They should make sure they check their emails for any additional information.  

    Each classroom is assigned a class code if the student has not checked in before.  They are as follows:

    • English 12 class code: 7fmlepx
    • English 11 class code: 3utqsm4
    • Environmental Science class code: b65y4h


    This is a great time to catch up on your Apex assignments.  If you get locked out email me at orsua.karen@lompocschools.org and I will unlock the assignment.


    It is my goal to provide your student with the  support they need to be academically successful.   Again, urge you to contact me if you have questions or concerns.
