REDMOND, Oregon (September 22, 2012) – The Redmond School District and community mourn the loss of Elton Gregory Middle School Principal John Hartford, who passed away in a motorcycle accident on Friday afternoon.  Hartford joined the district as the assistant principal of Hugh Hartman Middle School.  In 2005, he assumed the role of principal at M.A. Lynch Elementary School, serving for three years before being named principal of Elton Gregory Middle School in 2009.

 

All who encountered John admired his courage, honesty, and unwavering love for the students and staff of Elton Gregory Middle School and the Redmond School District.

 

"This is a tremendous loss for all of us in Redmond, not just our school district, but the entire community," said RSD Superintendent Mike McIntosh.  "John was an outstanding educator and a good man.  He will be missed.  Our prayers are with his family."

 

Support for students and staff will be provided through the Tri-County Crisis Response Team and the school district counseling staff throughout the coming days and weeks.
