Mr. Thomas Luce Appointed Interim Principal of the Hatfield Elementary School

Dear Hatfield School Community,

I am pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Thomas Luce as Interim Principal of the Hatfield Elementary School. Mr. Luce retired in 2014 after serving as Principal of Maple Elementary School in Easthampton from 2002 to 2014. Prior to being in Easthampton, he served as Principal of the Heath Elementary School from 1999 to 2001 and as Principal of the Conway Elementary School from 1992 to 1998. In addition, during the 2017-2018 school year, Mr. Luce served as the Interim Principal of the New Hingham Regional Elementary School. A committee made up of teachers, and school committee members assisted in the interviewing of several candidates for the position before deciding on Mr. Luce. The Committee felt that Mr. Luce’s demeanor, student-centered focus, and extensive experience as an elementary school principal made him an ideal candidate for the interim position. Mr. Luce will start on August 1st.


John F. Robert, MEd, CAGS
