La Cañada Elementary School Principal Elissa DeAngelo will retire at the end of the school year, district officials said.
DeAngelo has served as principal since 2008, according to a statement released Thursday.
"Her years of dedicated service are greatly appreciated," district officials said in the statement. "She will be missed by La Cañada Elementary School's students, parents, teachers, staff members and all of her district colleagues."
The district will initiate a candidate search later this month to replace DeAngelo. They hope to make an announcement regarding the position by May 8.
"The governing board and the entire district wish he happiness in her retirement and hope that this new chapter in her life is filled with opportunities for new adventures and time for friends, family and other rewarding pursuits," officials said in the statement.
