Dear ESM Central High School Parents, Families, Staff & Community;Edward Michalenko

Welcome to East Syracuse Minoa Central High School! I'm excited to be your Executive Principal and work with our amazing staff, supportive families, and fantastic students.

Our main goal is to help students succeed and support our staff and families. I appreciate the hard work of our team, from administrators to teachers and everyone in between.

Let me introduce our leadership team: Ms. Ashton Rinella (students with last name A-F), Mrs. Naomi Trivison (last name G-M), Mrs. Kate Liddle (last name N-Z), Mrs. Shelly LaMarche (Coordinator for Spartan Academy, College and Career Pathways), and Mrs. Cheryl West (Director of Counseling, Youth Development, and Leadership). Together, we're here to provide excellent education and support for your children.

As we start this new journey, your feedback is important. Feel free to reach out to me by phone, email (, or our Principal Talk-Line at 315-256-0127.

We're still focused on keeping everyone safe and healthy. Remind your children to report any issues. They should enter through the main entrance. For day-to-day communication, please call the main office instead of their cell phones.

Throughout the year, we're refreshing our procedures and focusing on PRIDE behaviors. We ask everyone to follow the dress code, be on time, keep cell phones out of sight, and promote positive behavior. Take a look at your child's agenda book and talk about it with them.

We're dedicated to providing the best learning environment for every student. Thank you for your support, and let's make this a year of success and growth!


Edward A Michalenko
