Re: “Rogers principal will return, resign at year”s end” (TNT, 5-6).

Apparently the only acceptable option for Rogers High School Principal Scott Brittain was to resign. How unfortunate. After parenting two children through the Puyallup School District, the second just graduating from Rogers High School, I believe Brittain is the best principal I have witnessed in the district.

What singles him out is his strong, pervasive and unwavering desire to ensure that each student feels as comfortable as possible each day at school, that attitudes are accepting, not excepting. What could be more fundamental to learning?

Each student we know really likes Brittain. It’s a loss to all to lose him. It does not seem necessary.
