Castle Rock Communiqué

We love our Knights!

November 15, 2020 (Week Fifteen)

Hello Castle Rock Families!

I would like to take a moment to thank you for your partnership and generosity during my tenure at Castle Rock. We are blessed to be part of a vibrant learning community that puts our kids first. I have loved getting to know you and your children, and I thank you for entrusting them to me and to our staff.

While my journey in education is continuing elsewhere, I will always remember my time in Walnut Valley. We are an incredibly special organization and will continue to be so. Best wishes to my Knights in your future endeavors...go out and be the people of integrity and character this world needs!

I am pleased to again announce that Mrs. Jackie Brown, longtime and beloved Walnut Valley administrator, will serve as our Interim Principal until a suitable replacement is found. Feel free to contact her at

Take care and stay well,

Jen Alcazar

Principal, Castle Rock Elementary School
