Transitions at Visitation
The Sinsinawa Dominican Sisters have had a continuous presence at Visitation since 1891. In the upocoming school year, 2018-2019, the two remaining Sinsinawa Dominicans will be in a part-time capacity. Sr. Jean Matijosaitis, OP., who has served as Visitation Principal for 31 years, will "pass the torch" to Ms Jenna Markoff who will assume the responsibilities of Principal. As Ms. Linda Harrington retires, Ms Lourdes Robles will become the Assistant Principal. Both Ms. Markoff and Ms. Robles are highly qualified for these roles and have served at Visitation for several years. At this writing Sr. Diane Boutet, OP., Development Director, does not have a replacement. Both sisters will serve at Visitation with limited responsibilities and as needed.
