Mrs. Suzanne Horne | Principal

I am so honored and excited to be the Principal at Severance Middle School. This is my third year as a Hawk and my twentieth year in education. I taught English Language Arts at both the middle and high school levels and served as an Assistant Principal for five years. At Severance Middle School, we demonstrate Respect, Responsibility, and Connections — it is the Hawk Way! I am committed to building a strong school culture where students grow personally and academically. I believe in collaborating with families and the community, and look forward to partnering with you to make Severance Middle School the best middle school in Colorado! At SMS, we Soar to Success!

Mr. Kintz | Assistant Principal

It is with great pleasure to be in my second year serving as the assistant principal here at Severance Middles School. I have worked in education for over 2 decades with 1 decade teaching physical education/ heath and another decade having the opportunity to be a school administrator all at the middle school level. I take great joy in being able to serve and grow in my own community and cherish every opportunity to make our students and staff better versions of themselves. I look forward to another great year of working with the hawk students, parents and staff and continuing the path to Engage, Educate and Empower. Go Hawks!

Mrs. Andrea Rolf | Athletic Director | Assistant Principal

I joined the Severance Middle School team in 2014 and am excited to start another year as a Hawk! I have been in education for 10+ years and have served in many capacities. Before joining the administration team, I taught 7th-grade advanced and regular Language Arts and facilitated the Language Arts intervention classes. Prior to this, I was a 4th-grade teacher in Greeley.

When away from work, my husband and I spend much of our time watching our kids sporting events: college baseball, football, lacrosse, and dance. I enjoy spending my summer days at the pool or the lake, cooking, and traveling.
