Dear Parents and Guardians,
I am pleased to announce that Mary Custard, Dean of Students, has agreed to serve as the interim assistant principal at ARHS for the remainder of the school year. Ms. Custard has twenty-two years of experience working in Amherst and has been a licensed administrator since 2014. She is a dedicated faculty member who
is highly respected among the ARHS students, faculty, staff, and local community and is actively involved with the student body as a co-advisor to the Minority Student Achievement Network (MSAN) and People of Color United (POCU) group. Ms. Custard is an avid supporter of ARHS students, both in school and in afterschool activities, and will be a strong addition to our administrative team.
Assistant Principals Talib Sadiq and Mary Custard, Athletic Director Rich Ferro, and I will work diligently together to support students and faculty for the remainder of the school year. We are also committed to assisting with the search for a new ARHS principal to begin work July 1, 2019, when I plan to return to my
permanent role of assistant principal.
Thank you for your support as we navigate this leadership transition. Please feel free to contact me at 362-1701 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns.
Miki Gromacki, Ed.D.
Interim Principal, Amherst Regional High School
