Dear Westminster Community,
Earlier today, Whit McKnight resigned as Head of the Lower School following allegations regarding a personal matter. The allegations do not involve any other Westminster students or employees, and this matter has not had any bearing on the safety of any member of our School community.
Effective immediately, Lauren DuPriest will act as the Interim Head of the Lower School. Lauren has served as a teacher and administrator in the Lower School for more than 17 years. Lauren joined the Westminster community in 2004 serving as a science teacher in the Lower School. In 2013, she took on the role of Lower School Director of Operations and Communications overseeing the daily activities of the Lower School. I am grateful for Lauren’s leadership and thank you in advance for your support.
NOTE: This email was sent Friday, December 31, to all parents of current Westminster students.
