Parents hoping for some stability at the helm of Daniel D. Waterman Elementary School will have to wait until late spring.
In the meantime, Superintendent Judith Lundsten told parents in a letter that retired administrator Thomas Hazard will work at Waterman through the end of this school year and she will be meeting with parents today to talk about the plan.
Acting Principal Don Frederick, who has been working at Waterman, can't finish the school year because retired principals can only work for 90 days in a school year, Lundsten said in the letter.
"Mr. Frederick has agreed to assist in transitioning Mr. Hazard to Waterman through March 1st."
Hazard beings work Feb. 6.
Lundsten said she will meet with parents today at 7:30 a.m. and tonight at 6:30 p.m. in the cafeteria.
"Everyone wants Waterman to have the best administrator and I appreciate your patience as we seek a new principal," Lundsten said.
