Medical Leave of Absence

Dear Garden Grove Elementary School Community,


It is with hope and determination that I inform you that as of January 7, 2019, I will take a medical leave of absence for the remainder of this school year. While I do have some health issues that require my full attention, I am not facing a life-threatening disease. Please do not worry, and please reassure your children that I am fine. As of now, I fully expect to return to work next year. 


I am leaving you all in the best of hands during my absence. Dr. Richard Underhill, who currently serves in our District Office and has many years of educational leadership experience, will serve as our acting Principal. Dr. Underhill is excited by this opportunity and has been “shadowing” me for several days to become familiar with our community. Please welcome him warmly. Dr. Underhill’s email  is: richard.underhill@simivalleyusd.org.  Until I return, I will miss you all terribly. I am already looking forward to the 2019-2020 school year! 




Martha Feinstein, Principal
