Hommocks Principal to Resign at End of School Year

Dr. Robert I. Shaps, Superintendent of Schools has announced that Hommocks Principal Emily Macias-Capellan has informed the District that she will resign at the end of this school year to pursue a position in elementary administration.


“Several years ago, I asked Ms. Macias-Capellan to transition from her assistant principal position at Chatsworth to take on a leadership role at Hommocks and help move the school forward. We are grateful for the focus she brought to the middle school -- first as assistant principal and then as principal these past two years -- in providing top-quality instruction and a warm, inclusive, positive school climate.”


In a letter sent to parents January 23, Ms. Macias-Capellan wrote, “My time at Hommocks has been a rewarding experience, and it has been my pleasure to serve as your principal for the past two years. I look forward to our continued partnership and to continuing to work with our existing leadership team, our staff and the PTA during the remaining school year to ensure that we continue the important work and initiatives that are already underway…We have a beautiful school community that I have been most fortunate to be part of.”


“In the coming weeks, we will report back on the search process we will undertake. We thank Ms. Macias-Capellan for her service and the hard work and dedication she shared with our students and families each day,” noted Dr. Shaps
