Principal Message

Dear Foothill High School Students and Family Members,
My name is Mrs. Burkhead and I am the proud principal of Foothill High School.
I am so honored to have been given the opportunity to serve you and our community.
I opened Foothill in the fall of 1999 as a Spanish teacher and during my time at Foothill served as the Department Chair of Foreign Language, Student Council Advisor, and coach. I have been an administrator in the Clark County School District for the past eighteen years.
Returning to Foothill High School after almost two decades is truly a tremendous opportunity and I am excited to be the principal of such an outstanding high school.
At Foothill, we are committed to providing our students with an engaging and rigorous instructional environment. It is with your parental involvement that we can make a stronger impact on our students. Please know that the entire faculty and staff are here to serve you.
I look forward to meeting you and seeing you at school events.

Stay Gold!
