Published reports to the contrary, Greenwich middle school principal Shelley Somers has not been offered the principal’s job at Staples High School.
According to superintendent of schools Elliott Landon:
“The Greenwich School District sent out a press release a week in advance of the Westport Board of Education decision, with the assumption approval would be made. If the Board did not approve the appointment, the press release would not have been sent.
“Both she and I hope her candidacy is not jeopardized by this communication error.”
