ESSEX, Vt. (WCAX) - An Essex Westford School District principal has resigned just a few weeks into the school year.

Superintendent Beth Cobb says Founders Memorial School Principal Matt Melaugh stepped down, saying “the position was not a good fit for him and the decision did not come easy.”

The search for a permanent replacement starts in the winter, but Cobb says they’re immediately trying to find someone to lead the school in the meantime.

The Essex Town school serves third to fifth graders.
