The current principal of Glenfield School Anthony Grosso has been named as the new Montclair High School principal.
The announcement was made in an email that Superintendent Kendra Johnson sent to parents Wednesday evening.
Montclair teacher SallyAnn Howell-Rembert will replace Jeffery Frieman as acting assistant principal. Frieman is replacing Cheryl Hopper at Edgemont. Hopper is moving to Glenfield as principal.
James Earle stepped down as principal in June after nine years in that role, after he was hired as an assistant superintendent for the West Windsor-Plainsboro School District. Terry Trigg-Scales has been serving as the interim principal since that time.
The announcement comes four months after the district rotated several principals among the schools in an effort to fill staffing needs. Grosso had been transferred from Watchung to Glenfield after Joseph Putrino was moved to Renaissance, replacing Edward Wilson. Hillside Assistant Principal Patrick Krenn was moved to Watchung to take Grosso's place, and special education staffer Thomas Adamo took Krenn's place at Hillside.
All of the principal appointments will officially take effect Nov. 1. There will be meet and greets with the new principals at their respective schools, with dates and times to be announced.
