I write to offer three cheers for Marblehead principals Mary Maxfield (Brown School) and Hope Doran (Glover). I’ve had the chance to sit in on meetings with each of these experienced educators, savvy administrators.
The subject of these meetings has been safety at school arrival/dismissal. Whether kids arrive by bus, car, on bicycle, by wheelchair or o foot, they’re clearly dedicated to providing a safe route to school — from home, to campus and from there into the building.
Moreover, Principal Maxfield related that she and Principal Doran, though heads of individual elementary schools, work together as Marblehead’s K-3 team. No parochialism here (if you’ll excuse the pun)!
