Principal Olson

Hello and welcome to Lake Ripley Elementary. I am so proud to be your child's first principal. As the leader of the school, I am looking forward to working with you and your student as they grow emotionally, socially, and academically. The staff and I are excited for the opportunity to work along side you in your child's educational adventure. It is going to be a great first year of school for your child. Please reach out to me if you have any questions.
