    Interim Superintendent

    Dr. Peter J. Righi

    Administrative Assistant  
    Mrs. Gina Villano

    As the Interim Superintendent of this outstanding school district, I’d like to welcome you to our website.   Since my arrival on Monday, March 2nd, I have been impressed with the students, staff and community.

    Our students come to school each day ready to learn.  It is obvious to me that students love their teachers and their school.  The faculty has impressed me in the way they approach their work with students.  Faculty members truly care about their work and their students.

    The school community has made me feel welcome from my first day and I feel blessed to be a part of such a fine group of people.  Our first priority continues to be our students. Their safety and education will always be our top concerns. In my 40+ years in education, I can honestly say I have never seen a more positive school climate.

    I look forward to meeting you and working for the benefit of our students.  Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions or concerns.

    -Dr. Peter Righi
