Mungovan sent an email to parents this evening, April 30.
"It has been an honor and a privilege to have been the principal of this wonderful school for thirteen years but the time has come for me to take leave and continue on to the next phase of my life," wrote Mungovan to parent. "I want to spend more time with my family and have a less demanding schedule. I am healthy and energetic yet the demands of this position can be daunting."
"You and your children have been a very special part of my life for thirteen years. I have seen many of you give birth to those now in our school and they are a joy to me. I hope you will stay in touch with me as your children grow and continue on in their lives," wrote Mungovan. "Saint Bridget School is sound, both academically and financially, so I know that I am leaving it in great shape. Together we have accomplished many things yet, there is always more to do."
Established in 1958, St. Bridget School serves students in Pre-K to grade 8. There are about 300 students in the school from Framingham and other MetroWest communities.
