Sullivan Middle School Parents,
My name is Rudy Ramirez and I have been asked to serve as the acting Principal for the remainder of the 2020-21 school year. As you know, Dr. Knox has accepted another position in another district. I will begin on the Monday after the Thanksgiving break.
I retired 5 years ago after 41 years in education. During my career, I was a government teacher, high school counselor, a junior high principal, and for the last 24 years of my career, I served as the Principal of Indio High School. I recently relocated to San Marcos and live with my wife Elizabeth (an elementary principal) and 6th grade son, Jonathan.
I have been working at Bonsall Elementary School as the interim assistant principal. And, last school year, while many of the Sullivan staff were at a conference, I served as the acting principal for three days.
As we all know, we are facing a difficult time in education. The challenges of both hybrid and distance learning bring many challenges to our school, staff, parents, and most importantly students. I will work tirelessly to continue the academic direction of Sullivan and maintain a safe campus that allows for students to flourish. You will find me to be very visible on campus, visiting classes 2-3 times a week and also visiting zoom classes.
I look forward to serving as your principal for the remainder of the school year.
Rudy Ramirez, Interim PrincipalSullivan Middle School
