Message from the Principal 

Dear El Capitan Families,

As your new principal, I am honored to have the opportunity to work at El Capitan this school year.  I am happy to be able to work with the community.  I am excited to meet all of you and to have the opportunity to support you and our students in order to ensure that all students at El Capitan are successful.

This will be an unprecedented year because we are dealing with COVID-19, but I want to reassure you that we are working very hard to make sure that our staff, students, and families are safe.  I am asking you to be flexible and patient because we are going to have to be creative as we tackle these new challenges.  We will put systems in place in order to support our students physically, emotionally, and educationally. We will be utilizing ParentSquare as one of the means of communicating and keeping you up to date.

This will be an amazing year that will be filled with many challenges but I know we will be able to overcome anything that comes our way.


Dr. Marilu Cano

Principal of El Capitan Elementary
