After several months without an administrator, Horsefly Elementary Junior Secondary School finally has a principal.
Rick Miller has been appointed as the temporary principal of Horsefly Elementary School, effective April 3 of this year.
“I wish him well in his return to school administration,” said superintendent Mark Wintjes.
Miller has worked in the district since 1982 and retired as principal from Mountview Elementary School last year, where he had worked since 2005.
“We are all very excited to finally get a principal after this long,” said Abby Wilson, Parent Advisor Council president for the school.
Horsefly has been without a principal since Oct. 21.
“I would love to see this principal come in and get the kid’s education back on track, it has really affected their education this year,” said Wilson.
“The teachers have gone above and beyond giving the kids the education that they have had this year. It’s been a lot of work for the teachers, but the PAC and the parents of Horsefly stand behind them.”
“Getting someone in here steady every day, that staff and parents can go to when they need to will be an asset to the school,” she said.
“I’d like to thank the school district for finding a principal to sit at our school and I look forward to meeting him.”
