Mount Vernon West Potomac High School principal Alex Case and assistant principal Michelle Lyttle are both on administrative leave.
In a letter sent to parents on Feb. 13, Fairfax County Public School Region 3 assistant superintendent Terry Dade explained assistant principal Jessica Statz has agreed to serve as “principal designee during Mr. Case’s absence.”
No explanation has been given for the departure of both administrators. FCPS spokesman John Torre would not comment further than confirming both are on leave.
When asked whether Case and or Lyttle were placed on leave by the school system or chose to take absence themselves, Torre again declined to comment.
