Stamford, CT – Stamford Public Schools (SPS) recently announced that Newfield Elementary Assistant Principal Sharon Longo has been named principal of Newfield, effective July 1, 2021. Longo is replacing current Newfield Principal Lisa Saba Price, who will be serving as principal at Westover Elementary School, also beginning on July 1, 2021.
Longo has been a member of the Newfield community for 27 years, serving as assistant principal for the past 10 years. She began her career in the Stamford Public Schools as a fourth grade teacher and a curriculum associate for staff development. She is a Stamford native and graduate of Westhill High School.
“Sharon Longo is a dedicated leader and has been integral in the creation of the nurturing community that is Newfield,” said SPS Superintendent Dr. Tamu Lucero. “It is rare that a person spends their entire career in one school community.
