On April 8, 2022, Jesse Hull announced his official resignation as principal at Manitou Springs High School effective at the end of the 2021-2022 school year.

A staff meeting was held right after school on Friday April, 8, 2022 to inform the staff at MSHS of the recent events. This meeting gave staff a brief explanation as to why he is resigning.

“I am not coming back as principal next year,” Hull said. “These last two years have been really hard, and I know they have been hard on everybody. I have made the decision that it is starting to impact me, and it is time to make a change.”

Right after this meeting took place, an email went out to parents to give them the news also.

Hull still plans to continue to finish out the school year strong and still plans to stay involved in the community. “I can’t say enough about how great this place is and how much I love Manitou. I’m still going to be a part of the community,” Hull said.

Hull has been a part of the Manitou Springs School District for the past almost two decades. He has worked alongside many of the current MSHS members for many years and has made some sort of impact on many of them.

We are thankful for Jesse’s leadership and his 17 years of service to Manitou Springs High School and the larger Manitou Springs School District community. I have appreciated the opportunity to work alongside him, especially during these difficult times. He is a true advocate for students, staff, and families,” said Elizabeth Domangue, MSSD14 Superintendent.

There is a plan to have some sort of celebration for Hull’s long-term commitment to MSSD at a later date. 

Within the coming week, an update will come out about how the community can be a part of the selection process for a new principal at MSHS.

“I am going to move onto other opportunities at this point,” said Hull.
