CMSD82 News Release – Vince Dikaitis, HSS Principal Resignation – August 1, 2021


It is with regret that we share the resignation of Vince Dikaitis, Principal at Hazelton Secondary School effective August 1, 2021.  Vince has accepted a principalship position at Parkland Composite High School in Edson, Alberta in order to be closer to family.

Vince is currently filling the interim principalship role at Cassie Hall Elementary School for the remainder of this school year.

On behalf of Coast Mountains School District, I would like to thank Vince for his contributions made during his tenure at Hazelton Secondary School and his recent contributions to Cassie Hall Elementary School.

In the interim, the school district is actively seeking a new Principal for Hazelton Secondary School and will be conducting a Canada-wide search beginning this week.

Our best wishes are extended to Vince for success in all his future endeavors.

Janet Meyer
Superintendent of Schools
