Dear MED Families,
I wanted to let you know about a temporary change to our administrative structure at MED. Mr. Fortran, our assistant principal, will be assigned to Chatham High School to serve as acting assistant principal there, starting May 10. He will be assisting Mr. Justin Forrest, who is serving as acting principal at CHS while principal John Thorsen is out on medical leave. We do not know how long Mr. Thorsen may be out, but it could be for an extended period.
Ms. Kate Jarrard, who is a certified school building leader, our District’s music department teacher leader, and an orchestra teacher at CHS and CMS, will be joining us as acting assistant principal at MED while Mr. Fortran is away. She is already here getting acquainted with our students and staff, and all the other wonderful things that make MED the special place that it is. Please join me in giving her your warmest MED welcome!
As alway, questions can be addressed to the MED main office.
Sal DeAngelo, Superintendent
Kristen Reno, Principal, Mary E. Dardess Elementary School
