WESTPORT - Officials from both Greenwich and Westport public schools responded after a premature announcement was made about the next principal of Staples High School in Westport.

The Greenwich superintendent announced this week that Shelley Somers is leaving the town to become principal of Staples. 

However, Westport superintendent Elliot Landon says nothing is official yet and the Board of Education will meet with her next week.

Greenwich officials have apologized for their announcement.
