Dear Putnam Valley Community:

As mentioned in yesterday’s communication, the appointment of Mr. Mello as interim principal created an immediate vacancy for an assistant principal at Putnam Valley High School. I am happy to announce that Dr. Letitia Payne has agreed to move over from Putnam Valley Middle School to fill the assistant principal position at Putnam Valley High School for the upcoming year.

Dr. Payne has formed relationships with many of the students now attending Putnam Valley High School and brings several years of administrative experience to this new role.  Additionally, Dr. Payne is well-versed on the International Baccalaureate program and is well suited to support Mr. Mello with this work.  Dr. Payne is eager to support the students and staff of Putnam Valley High School during this time of transition.

We will immediately begin a search for an interim assistant principal for the upcoming school year.  We will be actively seeking an individual with middle school experience who will be able to continue the implementation of the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program.


Dr. Jeremy Luft
Superintendent of Schools
