Roosevelt principal to return after absence
Roosevelt Elementary School Principal Isis Contreras is returning to work Wednesday after a leave of absence.
Roosevelt parents informed the Mail Tribune that Contreras was on administrative leave over the last couple of weeks, but district officials declined to comment on why Contreras was gone.
“We cannot discuss personnel matters,” said district spokeswoman Natalie Hurd. “We are pleased that Isis Contreras will be back to work Wednesday, May 3.”
In her absences, former Roosevelt Principal Anne Mitchell, Administrative Intern Charity MacLeod and another staff member took turns at the helm of the school.
Contreras sent a letter to parents today saying that she would be back at Roosevelt Wednesday and that she appreciated “all the support and hard work of the staff and guest principals.”
“I’m also pleased to let you know that Charity MacLeod will continue to provide support for the rest of year as an administrative intern,” her letter stated.
Contreras was hired as principal of Roosevelt Elementary School in 2014. Previously, she served as a special education resource teacher at Jackson Elementary School and later as vice principal of Vibes Public Charter School, now Kids Unlimited Academy.
