ALBION – The high school principal is leaving to take a job at Oakfield-Alabama High School.

Matthew Peterson has worked at Albion since August 2014. He worked in Albion as assistant principal before becoming the principal the following year.

He will start his new job in Oakfield-Alabama on Jan. 14.

“As part of an enduring personal mission to support my four children and lovely wife with as much as possible, I pursued an opening to become the next principal at a school much closer to my home in Genesee County that I am familiar with from my days as a teacher,” he wrote in a message to the community on the district website.

Peterson said he is grateful to have met so many Albion students and community members. He said he expects there will be a smooth transition to another principal in Albion.

“The decision was not made without careful consideration of the staff and students that I currently serve here at Albion,” Peterson wrote. “Although I am excited to begin a new chapter in my life in another school, I will miss the Albion Central School District very much. Albion will always hold a special place in my heart and I want to thank every single one of you who took the time to introduce yourselves and welcome me to this community.”
