The new principal of Charlottesville High School has unexpectedly resigned from his position.
Aaron Bissonnette sent a letter to CHS families and staff on Thursday afternoon, saying he is stepping down for personal reasons.
He was hired in June of this year.
In his letter, Bissonnette says, "I regret to leave so soon after my arrival, and I appreciate your collective understanding in a time of need for me."
The school responded with a statement saying, "We are disappointed with this unexpected change, and we wish Aaron the very best as he attends to personal matters. We appreciate his brief but meaningful service to Charlottesville High School, and we would welcome his return to the division in the future."
Assistant Principal Jill Dahl will take over in his place.
