Dear Parents/Guardians,


I am reaching out to you today as we all say goodbye to Dr. Jenn Hills-Papetti and wish her all the best, and now turn towards the new opportunities that our next leader will bring to Pitkin School. 

Over the next month, we will be working hard to fill this important role.  To this end, we look forward to our search and interview process and appreciate the involvement of parents and faculty in this important endeavor.  

On an interim basis, Ms. Elsie Torres, Assistant Superintendent for Elementary Schools, will be stepping forward to assume the principalship and serve as building leader.  Ms. Torres is a highly experienced and a successful former school leader who is looking forward to getting to know you as the Pitkin community in this temporary role.

Please join with me in welcoming Ms. Torres and I encourage you to connect with her directly when you see her at the school.  We look forward to finding our next dynamic leader and making another great leadership hire for East Hartford Public Schools.
