In an email to parents on March 2, Mr. Burmeister said the appointment would not take his attention away from his role as Hillview principal.

"We anticipate that on the whole, my days will be spent at Hillview with periodic meetings taking me to the District Office," he said in the email. "During times when I am away from campus, Associate Principal Willy Haug is available to serve in my stead."
