The Greencas-tle School Board accepted the retirements of Tzouanakis Principal Dan TeGrotenhuis and GHS band director Bob Hedge at Wednesday's meeting.
"I want to thank them for their service and wish them nothing but the best," Superintendent Bob Green said.
They join Green and teachers Mike VanRensselaer, Deborah Fenoglio, Anne Graham, Jill Green and Carolyn Ruark, who all announced their retirements in May.
The opening for the principal's position is already posted and set to close on May 16. A committee will be formed to conduct the interview process, with Deer Meadow Principal Gwen Morris likely to chair the group.
