Larry Keane Returns to Hommocks as Interim Assistant Principal
The Mamaroneck Board of Education approved the appointment of Larry Keane to interim assistant principal at Hommocks Middle School. Mr. Keane, who served as Hommocks’ assistant principal for more than a decade until retiring in 2009, takes over for Edgar McIntosh, who announced earlier this summer that he’ll be assuming the principal position at Ardsley Middle School.
“We were unsuccessful this summer in finding an administrator qualified for this position so we’re thrilled that Larry Keane has helped provide us with a natural solution. He has agreed to take on this short-term position for an indefinite time – most likely three or four months – until we are able to find the right person,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Robert Shaps. “Larry is familiar with the school, the students and the roles and responsibilities, and he has worked closely for years with Dr. Weitzman and Dr. Mazzone. The stability he will offer is critical as we continue our search for a permanent replacement.”
Before he became assistant principal, Mr. Keane taught science at Hommocks for 28 years and served as science department chairman. “Mr. Keane is the ideal choice to fill the interim assistant principal position,” attested Hommocks principal Dr. Seth Weitzman. “He has a stellar reputation with students, parents and staff, earned from almost four decades at Hommocks. He understands the job and has accomplished the role with excellence.”
The search to permanently fill the assistant principal position will begin in later October or early November.
