Associate principal Russo ushers student onto bus

John B. Russo is back, in a familiar role, adding to his 42 years of service to the Warwick Valley District. 

If you were a student at Warwick Valley Middle School when it first opened in 1974, you may remember Mr. Russo as your gym teacher. He would go on to serve the school and generations of students as assistant principal for two years, and as a principal for 13, but his longest-running role was as the District’s director of human resources and safety, until he retired in 2015

After serving as acting principal at Sanfordville Elementary School over the summer months, Mr. Russo is now back at the Middle School where his career started, as an interim associate principal. 

“I really appreciate the opportunity to come back part-time,” Mr. Russo said. “It’s great to be busy and I love working with the school staff and the kids.” 

A beloved member of the Warwick Valley school community known for his hard work and always having student needs and safety as his first priority, Mr. Russo is warmly welcomed back!
