Woodland School Principal Mort Argoe has tendered his resignation to the district, according to former Barrington Mayor John Rink.
“Mr. Argoe resigned (Tuesday), and (he still) came and worked a fundraiser for our kids. Just speaks wonder of what type of man he is and what we will lose out with him leaving,” Rink commented regarding Argoe’s participation in a fund-raiser at the Silver Diner.
“He submitted yesterday and will leave at end of June, after school year is done,” Rink said via e-mail.
The resignation comes after a lengthy school board meeting Monday in which dozens of borough residents came out to show their support for Argoe (“Woodland principal’s future at stake; several ask for resignation of school board president“.)
The meeting revolved around an apparent bullying incident at Woodland School. Specific information about the incident was never discussed because the law forbids it.
