Landon Proposes Full-Day Kindergarten Program

By Jennifer Connic

For the third time during his eight-year tenure, Westport Schools Superintendent Elliott Landon has proposed changing the kindergarten program so students are attending a full day of school.WestportNow.com Image

Landon has proposed kindergartners attend three full days of school and two extended days of school per week based on the results of a survey of former kindergarten parents. The plan would go into effect for the 2007-08 school year.

The Board of Education will discuss the survey results during its meeting at 8 p.m. on Monday at Staples High School.

Landon, who marks his eighth anniversary with the Westport school system this week, could not be reached for comment.

Ceremony Scheduled to Dedicate Partrick Wetlands

The Partrick Wetlands Preservation Fund will hold a public ceremony on Monday at 10 a.m. to dedicate the 22.14 acres of open space it received from ARS Partners in northwest Westport.

The ceremony will take place at 18 Partrick Road, and it will be held rain or shine. The property will remain as open space.

Event organizers say those attending should wear footwear appropriate for a short walk up a gravel trail.

The donation of the property ends 40 years of uncertainty over the property that lies between Partrick Road and Newtown Turnpike.

It’s usually around St. Patrick’s Day that you start seeing rowers on the Saugatuck River in Westport—generally quite bundled up.

There was a steady stream of people filing through the Emily McLaury House today during an open house in order to show people plans to restore the historic house.

The Emily McLaury House Committee, which has been working for about a year, is seeking $268,000 from the Westport Representative Town Meeting to restore the house, and many RTM members were at the open house today.

The house, which was built in 1921, was designated as historic under a local ordinance by the RTM in December 2005.

Debbie Agnotti, Historic District Commission and McLaury House Committee member, said the committee wanted to restore the house properly and it has “good bones.”

Man Wearing Ski Mask Robs Westport Hair Salon

A man wearing a ski mask and brandishing a kitchen knife held up a Westport hair salon tonight on Post Road East near the Fairfield town line, police said.

It was not immediately known how much was taken in the robbery at Super Cuts, 1799 Post Road East, police said. The 911 call came in at 8:32 p.m.

Two female employees were in the store at the time when the man, described as a black male wearing a black ski mask, dark pants, a dark colored jacket, white sneakers and armed with a knife, entered near closing time, a news release said.

“While displaying the knife, the robber ordered one of the female employees to the floor and then had the other female employee take him to the cash register,” the statement said.
