Donna H. Noonan, the principal of Mullen-Hall Elementary School, has resigned.
Superintendent Bonny L. Gifford wrote in an e-mail June 9 that Ms. Noonan informed her of her resignation by telephone on May 30, and that it was unexpected.
An interim principal will most likely be appointed for the 2014-2015 school year, given that, “at this late date, it is tough to attract a large highly qualified pool of candidates,” Dr. Gifford wrote.
Dr. Gifford wished Ms. Noonan well: “It’s wonderful to see colleagues continuing to grow in their careers and I wish Donna well in her new position.”
Ms. Noonan did not return a phone call or e-mail requests for comment June 9.
The resignation will be noted at tonight’s [June 10] school committee meeting, which is being held at the Lawrence School library at 6:30 PM.
