Ark City Middle School Principal Robert Onelio has submitted a letter or resignation, according to USD 470 Tuesday.
Onelio will remain principal through the end of this school year.
“Mr. Onelio came to the district as a high school social studies teacher in 2005,” the school district stated. “Since his time in the classroom, Mr. Onelio has served in a variety of coaching and leadership positions across all grade levels.
“We appreciate Mr. Onelio’s service and his commitment to building community and fostering relationships in a fun way. We wish him well in his next adventures.”
USD 470 said that in an earlier message to ACMS staff and families, Onelio stated that as much he enjoys the people of Ark City, he finds himself needing to be closer to aging parents and has accepted an administrative position in Uniontown, Kan. for the 2023-2024 school year.
