WELL WISHES — To all those in the West Elementary community, the district announced Tuesday evening that Principal Carolyn Anderson will be taking an extended medical leave until June of this year.

For the coming days, Jon Dalbo, chief information officer, director of instructional technology and science teacher, will serve as the ad hoc administrator in the building. Additionally, Holly Quinn, Kim McCartan, Timothy Oldenburg and Superinten- dent Mark Crawford will offer administrative support.

During the next several days, this team will go about finding an interim principal to cover the period of time that Anderson will be out of the office. More information will be shared by the district as it becomes available.

Anyone who needs to contact the administration may call 677-3100 or visit the district’s webpage at www.wscschools.org.

Our thoughts go out to Anderson and her family at this time, and we wish comfort to all those at West Elementary and the district as a whole.
