Principal Configuration

Posted January 11, 2019

From Superintendent Rick Thompson


On December 12, 2018, the Chimacum School Board approved a grade level and facility reconfiguration plan. 

This plan calls for primary school operations--Preschool to Second Grade--at the Chimacum Creek Primary Campus in Port Hadlock; Chimacum Elementary School Grades 3 through 6 located at a newly renovated wing of the main campus (the southern part of the existing middle school building) ; and a 7-12 Secondary School on the main campus. 

The new configuration is designed to align reduced enrollment with the best facility spaces the district owns.

Families and patrons of the district are welcome to tour the spaces by calling 302-5890 to arrange a tour date.

This announcement comes early in the planning process for the 2019-20 school year to ensue ample time for transition planning.

This plan also calls for a new leadership structure as a result of consolidated operations.

Effective July 1, 2019, principal assignments will be as follows:

K-2 Principal (This position will be open and filled by July 1, 2019).

3-6 Elementary School Principal will be Jason Lynch.

7-12 Secondary School Principal will be David Carthum.

Staffing and supervision of all district programs, such as The Alternative Learning Experiences Program (Pi), will be determined before the school year begins and will provide the best possible support for district families.
