The Saffell Street Elementary site-based decision making council will begin its search for a new elementary principal due to Principal Robin Arnzen’s plans to retire by April 1, according to an email from Superintendent Sheila Mitchell.
Mitchell said she received a letter informing her of Arnzen’s intention to retire last Friday, and the district posted an opening for a new Saffell Street principal on Friday, Jan. 17.
Mitchell said Arnzen made the decision to retire because of family health concerns, specifically her two aging parents in need of care and assistance.
The elementary’s site-based decision making council is scheduled to meet Thursday, Jan. 23 in a special-called meeting to discuss the selection process for candidates and schedule a tentative date for the new interim principal or full-time principal to start, Mitchell said.
Arnzen is currently serving her fifth year as principal of Saffell Street Elementary for the 2013-2014 school year.
