Foster High School Principal - Memo

Foster High School Principal - Memo

To: All Staff and Families

From: Superintendent’s Office

RE: Principal - Foster High School

Dear Tukwila School District Staff, Students, and Community:

I write today to share with you some unfortunate news. I recently learned that, due to health-related reasons, Mr. Omar Crowder will not be joining us as the Principal of Foster High School. While we were looking forward to beginning this coming school year with him in position, we respect his decision to do what is best for his health and wellness.

In regard to the next steps, the position has been reposted on our district hiring site. We will go through that process to recruit and interview applicants. Simultaneously, I am meeting with my leadership team to explore other creative solutions.

Meanwhile, know that my leadership team and I will work closely with Assistant Principals Clint Long and Laurie Clark this summer. We have full confidence in their abilities to lead the staff and students at Foster High while we problem solve this situation.

My team will keep you updated on the progress we make for filling the position. I hope you stay healthy and well this summer and please take care.
