High School Weekly Update

From Co-Principals Ruby Bode & Chuck Scott

March 5, 2021

Dear EPHS Family,

We feel blessed every day to serve the students, teachers, and parents of EPHS. We are grateful for all the support we have received this year. This has been the most challenging year of our professional careers due to the Global pandemic, evacuation from wildfires, and Internet outages. Yet, we have had so much fun leading together this year as Co-Principals of Estes Park High School, and are grateful to have each other this year.

That is why it is with a heavy heart that we both must say goodby in June. Chuck Scott is retiring after a long career as a teacher, coach, and administrator in public education. He has served as the principal at Estes Park High School for the last 8 years. We are all very happy for him! Ruby Bode is returning to the district office in her role as Assistant Superintendent. The district has posted a position for a high school principal, and we will be searching for the new principal of EPHS this Spring.

Forever grateful,

Ruby Bode & Chuck Scott
