Principal’s Corner

Amy Skirvin, Principal

“Happy Friday!” – updated April 19, 2019

I want to thank all the parents, students, and staff that were extremely supportive and helpful this week. It never ceases to amaze me of our wonderful teachers and support staff that go above and beyond for our students. Thank you to the parents that reached out to me and please know if you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at the information below. Students have been phenomenal in adjusting to classes being misplaced. We will be back to normal on Monday.


Next week OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Association) will be doing an extensive study at Crestview Heights (including the Middle School wing) with the boilers off and with the boilers on. We do not want any students or staff in the building*, therefore conferences for teachers in the MS wing will be held at Waldport High School. *This does not affect Waldport High School.


I am very blessed to be serving your children as the principal at Waldport Middle and High School.
