DuFief Elementary School Principal "will no longer serve as principal."

October 30, 2018
Dear DuFief Staff and Community,
This letter is to inform you of an important personnel change at DuFief Elementary School. Effective Tuesday, October 29, 2018, Mr. Brent Mascott will no longer serve as principal. Mr. Mascott is currently on leave for personnel matter unrelated to students.  Ms. Lisa Shen, special education teacher, will serve as teacher in charge for the remainder of this week.
Beginning Monday, November 5, Mr. Gregg Baron will serve as acting principal through the end of the 2018-19 school year. Mr. Baron has 17 years of service in education, including six years as an assistant principal and eleven years as an elementary school teacher. Mr. Baron will be sharing opportunities to meet with staff, students and parents in the coming days.
I know that transition in school leadership can be yield anxiety. Please know that MCPS leadership is here to support the students, staff and school community throughout this time. I am confident that Dufief Elementary School will continue its mission to stimulate and challenge all students to develop their academic, social and emotional potential.
 Jennifer Webster
Director, Office of School Support and Improvement


  1. Unfortunate decisions that had a huge negative impact on staff, students, and families.

  2. Wow, that's...sudden! I remember Mr. Mascott from an earlier MCPS assignment.

  3. Does anyone have any idea what happened? It was very sudden and unexpected. He was a good principal. T
