Welcome to school year 2014-2015! I hope your summer has been filled with fun activities. The new school year is now upon us! I am excited to serve as Utah Virtual Academy’s High School Principal. It is a privilege to lead this incredible and innovative virtual school. Our high school staff is second to none and will be by your side all year! The group of teachers and counselors you will be working with have been preparing all summer to make this school year a success.
Students, commit yourselves to be dedicated to your schooling. Know we are here to support you and help you grow as lifelong learners. You have chosen to be a part of an incredible opportunity that did not exist 10 years ago and we are paving the way for future generations to come. Be grateful for such an incredible opportunity!
Parents, it is through your support that we can make a significant difference in the lives of your students. I encourage all parents to maintain an active role in their students education and keep all lines of communications open.
I am honored to be a part of this great team as we embark on the journey into this school year. Go Lynx!
