On March 24, Orange Live announced the resignation of Amity High School Principal Charles Britton.
Today, in his weekly school newsletter, Britton formally informed the Amity community of his decision.
Below is his letter:
We reached out to Britton for comment on Tuesday afternoon, but have yet to receive a response.
Word is that he will be going to Sacred Heart.
We will have more on this story as soon as we receive an official notice.
The fair gave students access to representatives from more than 100 colleges and universities in one convenient location.
In just the first 15 minutes more than 50 students, some with their parents, some flying solo flocked to the fair and began picking up brochures and asked the reps all the important questions.
The event was free and open to the public.
Attached to this post is a link to the list of colleges and universities that will be attending the college fair.
This is a great way for students to meet many of the college admission decision-makers in an intimate and convenient way.

In true Broadway fashion, the show must go on, and the curtain rises at 8 p.m.
The lobby display is amazing this year and affords you the opportunity to take a stroll through the jungle, purchase raffle tickets, acquaint yourselves with the cast on the photo wall and to browse through the program book.
The cast and crew have been preparing for this show for several months and they won’t let a little snow stop them from taking the stage tonight.
Come early and enjoy the show.
We’ve waited for it for so long, but Winter doesn’t seem to want to release its grip on us.
That’s right, we’re getting snow again today.
It’s expected to begin between 12-2 p.m. this afternoon and make a mess of the evening commute.
Look for the heaviest snowfall around 3 – 6 p.m. and if you are going to see Tarzan at Amity tonight, be prepared to clean off your car before you head out.
By intermission, the snow should have slowed dramatically and it could possibly have stopped when the show is over.
Tonight’s PTSO meeting (Thursday, March 19) that will take place in the Amity Regional High School at 7:00 p.m. followed by Superintendent Charles Dumais presenting the 2015-2016 Amity Budget. Parents are welcomed and encouraged to attend.
Here is the calendar for the remainder of the 2015 school year.
