Principal Richard Ellis

September 2021

Dear Warsaw High School Parents and Students:

Greetings! I hope this letter finds you enjoying the start to a new school year. My name is Rick Ellis and I would like to introduce myself as the new High School principal. As Mr. Wilkins referenced in his recent correspondence, I previously served as the Middle/High School principal for five years. This is my 10th year with the district and I enjoy serving the Warsaw community. I am very excited to return to the principal position and I look forward to working with everyone to make their school experience a positive one.

Along with staff, I will work hard to continue the success established at Warsaw. I will continue to build strong relationships with parents, students, staff, and community partners. I believe that a strong partnership with you will make a difference in your child’s education.

With that being said, we are still in the midst of state mandates and possible quarantines again this year. The unfortunate reality is that our opinions on masking and other personal choices doesn’t change the fact that the mandate is in place. Mask are required when you enter the school buildings, including any extracurricular events. Please help us by complying with the rules.

I anticipate a most successful year as the team and I support the academic, social, and emotional growth of your child here at Warsaw High School.

I look forward to working with you and your child!


Richard Ellis
