The Brookfield High School Principal is taking a temporary leave of absence. In an email to parents yesterday, Marc Balanda said the leave would be effective immediately, for personal reasons. The assistant principal will serve as acting principal during Balanda’s time off. Balanda has served as principal since 2015, and previously served as assistant principal at New Milford High School. Superintendent John Barile notes that the leave of absence was not disciplinary in nature.
