Principals' Community Message 9/20/19
Posted 9/20/19

Dear SLR Sea Lions and Garrison Gators,


This is Principal Camacho and Principal Dardis, 


Thank you for your support this past month. Together we accomplished something incredible combining our two schools in such a short time before the start of this school year. 


We would like to share with you new information that will impact our blended community. We will be moving forward with uniting the two schools. We will have the unique opportunity to build an amazing school culture that continues to support student and staff success.  


Starting Monday afternoon, September 23, Mr. Rowe will be the interim principal of the school. Principal Camacho and Principal Dardis will be taking positions as Principals on Special Assignments supporting all of OUSD.  In the meantime, we will continue working on site through September 27 to assist Mr. Rowe’s transition. 


OUSD will work with the community through the process to recruit and select a new principal in the coming months. More information about this process will be shared in the next few weeks. 


We are excited for what’s in store and we believe uniting our school, staff, students, families and the wider community is the best decision moving forward. Our sincere hope is that you will be partners in this merge and in choosing a leader who will continue our great work. Thank you again for your support and understanding. It has been a great honor to serve the students, staff and parents in our community. 


Leah and Dominic
