News and Announcements

Dear Hollydale Community,

 The purpose of this correspondence is to inform you that I will not be returning next year as principal at Hollydale Elementary.   I have been offered a unique position within another school district that will afford me the opportunity to grow professionally. It is bittersweet, as I am sad to be leaving Hollydale with its amazing students, staff, and community.

 This is a great community that takes care of each other. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of that community.  I truly appreciate all of your support during the past four years at Hollydale. 

 As you might expect, the search for a new Hollydale Elementary School principal will take place immediately.


Stacey W. Abbott


Querida Comunidad de Hollydale,

 El propósito de esta correspondencia es para informarle que yo no regresará el año que viene como director de una escuela primaria.   Me han ofrecido una posición única dentro de otro distrito escolar que me brindará la oportunidad de crecer profesionalmente. Es agridulce, ya que estoy triste de irme Hollydale con su sorprendente estudiantes, personal y comunidad.

 Se trata de una gran comunidad que se encarga de cada uno. Gracias por permitirme ser parte de esa comunidad.  Agradezco todo su apoyo durante los últimos cuatro años en Hollydale.

 Como era de esperar, la búsqueda de un nuevo Director de una escuela de primaria llevará a cabo inmediatamente.
