Welcome Back!

John Elmore, Head of School
Welcome to second semester and 2021.  I hope that everyone had a meaningful and restful holiday break, and it was so nice to see your children return to campus this morning.  As we continue this unique academic year, please know that all our COVID-19 mitigation protocols remain in place.

These protocols are necessary not only for the safety of everyone in our campus community but also to minimize exposure that could lead to individuals required to quarantine and be absent from school.  Our goals are to provide the safest possible learning environment and to continue teaching in-person and on-campus.  Thank you for your cooperation as well as your trust in O’Neal during this time. 

Today, I am writing to inform you that this will be Angie Manning’s last year as Head of Lower School.  Angie is engaged and will be moving out of state with her fiancé at the end of the academic year.  We wish Angie all the best in this next step in her life and thank her for all that she has done for our Lower School during her five years at O’Neal.  The tone has become one of joyful teaching and learning, and she has developed a culture of mutual respect and care.  We congratulate Angie and are truly grateful for her leadership. 

We are underway in the search process for O’Neal’s next Head of Lower School.  Our search committee has been named, and we will be conducting a national search.   I look forward to finding the right person to continue to grow and advance the Lower School. 

Please join me in wishing Angie and her son Clayton every success and happiness. Thank you all for supporting O’Neal.
