Wallace Primary School Principal Charles Tortorella has informed the school district that he plans to retire at the end of the summer, Superintendent Peter Carter confirmed Thursday. Tortoella's retirement becomes effective Aug. 31. Carter said the school system will advertise for Tortorella's replacement soon on the district Web site.
