Hebron Elementary School will soon be looking for a new principal.
Principal Kevin Hanlon will leave on Jan. 13, 2012 to take a position as principal of the Canton Intermediate School.
“It is much closer to home and, for personal and family issues, he wanted to be closer to home,” said Hebron Superintendent of Schools Eleanor Cruz. “Kevin has done a great job as a building leader, and will be missed.”
Hebron Elementary School serves grades three through six.
Kindergarten through second grades attend Gilead Hill Elementary School and seventh through 12 grades attend regional RHAM middle and high schools.
Hanlon, who lives with his family in West Hartford, arrived at Hebron Elementary Sept. 21, 2009 to fill the vacancy left by former principal, Joanne Collins, who moved out of the area with her family.
He was the unanimous selection by the Hebron Board of Education over 30 other applicants.
His annual salary was more than $112,000.
Prior to coming to Hebron elementary, Hanlon served as the assistant principal of Irving A. Robbins Middle School in Farmington and was the assistant principal of Winchester Middle School in Winchester.
The Hebron Board of Education will hold a special meeting on Jan. 5 to accept Hanlon’s resignation. “The board of education is meeting to discuss the process of replacing him,” Cruz said.
The meeting will be held in the music room of Gilead Hill Elementary at 7 p.m.
