COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- Multiple administrators and one administrative secretary won't be returning to Vista Ridge High School, the principal and Powers Zone Superintendent said in an email to parents this week, but the reason why isn't entirely clear yet.
The email confirms Assistant Principal Angela Duca, Assistant Principal Sarah Ricci, Athletic Director Brandon Monson and Building Administrative Secretary Tracey Sousa are no longer working at Vista Ridge High School but did not say why. The email says they have been "separated" from District 49.
In an email sent to parents, the district says interim administrators are in place to help until the district can fill the roles over the next few months.
According to school leadership profiles that have since been removed, Duca, Ricci and Monson all started working at Vista Ridge in 2019.
"We know this is a difficult time of the year to experience a change, however, we remain focused on continuing to make Vista Ridge High School a school focused on the success of students in preparing them for future success," the email said.
13 Investigates reached out to a District 49 spokesperson who said interim administrators were hired but had no other information.
All of the District 49 school board members did not answer any questions about the leadership shakeup.
We reached out to all of the now-former Vista Ridge High School employees, but they didn't return our messages.
