Woodsville High School is looking for a new leader

HAVERHILL — Woodsville High School is looking for a new leader. In a surprise announcement, first-year principal Hayden Coon submitted his resignation on May 4. In his letter, he wrote, “This was not an easy decision to make, but is necessary for myself and family at this time. I am grateful for the opportunity and I appreciate all the support in my time here.” No further explanation was provided. Coon had attended the most recent school board meeting three days earlier, and made no mention of stepping down. He will serve through the conclusion of the academic year. The interim principal opening was posted on Friday and promoted via social media on Saturday, with an advertised start date of July 1.
