Smithfield Public Schools Superintendent

Dear Smithfield Families,

I am thrilled to be the Superintendent of the Smithfield Public Schools and, in my role, I want to make sure that all students feel a part of our school community. I also wish to welcome our students and families to the 2022-2023 school year. There is much to be proud of in our schools and much to look forward to as we work together to ensure that our district is the best that it can be.

This is going to be an exciting new year as we open the year with the completion of the renovated elementary schools, Old County Road, LaPerche, and Pleasant View and the upgrades made to Gallagher Middle School and Smithfield High School. SHS received a much-needed upgrade to the auditorium, adding a new screen, lighting and sound system. We will be unveiling this to the public later this fall. The art classrooms at GMS and SHS have been painted, updated, and new furniture will arrive in September.

I look forward to working with you. While we will update our district and schools websites regularly, please also follow us on Facebook and Twitter @SmithfieldSchools @SmithfieldSuper.
