NEWARK - A spokeswoman with the Newark schools told News 12 New Jersey in a written statement that the school's principal turned in his letter of resignation today.

There is speculation that the principal is having medical problems, and may not have even shown up for school this academic year.

Dozens of students walked out of the school yesterday protesting unsafe and unsanitary conditions, as well as other problems. The statement said that the 41 students who walked out will face disciplinary action, and that a new principal will be named Tuesday.

The statement also said that Barringer school is cleaned daily, and regularly checked for pest control.
