Virtual Town Hall on Learning Safely During COVID-19

It’s been incredible to watch our community band together to fight COVID-19. We have made amazing progress and everyone has been doing their part to stop the spread of COVID. Our infection rates have slowed to a point where many schools are re-opening. As the mom of two school-age boys I share many of your concerns, so I’m convening a Town Hall to empower parents with information to make the best decisions for their family.

I hope you’ll join me on Tuesday to hear directly from three education experts: Dr. Michael Weiss, Children’s Hospital of Orange County; Dr. Elisha Smith Arrillaga the Executive Director at The Education Trust-West; and Jeff Hittenberger, Ph.D the Chief Academic Officer at the Orange County Department of Education.

Tuesday, September 29th

If you have any questions you’d like addressed during the town hall, reply to this email or send them to: by Monday, at 1:00 p.m.

You can also catch up on my virtual town halls from previous weeks. Topics include, election security, the Census, small business assistance, wildfire preparedness, masking, California’s economy, higher education, primary education, mental health, unemployment assistance, resources for veterans, help for renters & homeowners, tax extensions and COVID-19 testing.

As always, please do not hesitate to reach to out my office with questions or assistance. We must continue to stand together, when facing the challenges of this pandemic. If you have any questions call my team at: (949) 251-0074. Stay home, stay safe, stay strong.


Yours faithfully,
