Shoop resigns as high school principal


The Hot Springs County School District’s Board of Directors met last Wednesday evening and accepted the resignation of high school principal, Scott Shoop.

“I regretfully inform you that I have decided to resign as Principal at Hot Springs County High School, effective June 30, 2017,” Shoop said in an email to students and staff. “I have accepted a job in Laramie for 2017-2018. This decision was extremely difficult, because I believe we are building something special here. I hope that I have demonstrated my core value of “family coming first,” by my actions and support the last three years, and you will understand and support this decision.”

Superintendent Dustin Hunt said, “I want to thank Mr. Shoop for his work with the students and staff of HSCSD#1, and I with him the very best in his new adventure. He brought many things to the district and I appreciate all the work he has done.”

Shoop went on to say, “I am proud of your accomplishments and the culture we have established here. I am also pleased with the parent and community support as I was able to implement my vision and get positive results. Thank you for this opportunity; it was truly a privilege to serve you.”

Following the acceptance of his resignation, the board appointed middle school principal Breez Daniels, as the grade 5-12 principal.

Caitlin Deromedi was also named as the 5-12 Dean of Students.

Both contracts were issued for two years.

“I am excited to welcome Mrs. Deromedi into her role where her focus will primarily be students, growth mindset and discipline,” Hunt said. “She is nearing completion of her administrative degree and will have a great mentorship with Mrs. Daniels.

“I am also excited for Mrs. Daniels to work with our great high school staff, where we have excellent veterans, who will be joined by some great incoming staff.”
