Absence of Mr. Justin Orlando
Dear Priory Parents,
I am writing to update you on an unexpected situation that arose just prior to the start of the school year.
Mr. Justin Orlando is currently being treated for a medical situation that has arisen this past week. While he is under the care of a doctor, he will be absent from school. At this time, we do not know the length of his absence, but do anticipate that he will be gone for the first few weeks of the year. I know that Mr. Orlando appreciates the prayers and well wishes of the Priory family as he goes through this challenging time.
We are very fortunate to have hired an extremely qualified short-term substitute to fill in for Mr. Orlando. Dr. Lauren Tran will be teaching all of Mr. Orlando's chemistry and physics classes. Dr. Tran has a Ph.D. in Physics from Washington University, and she will be working closely with Dr. Rashford and me so that she is up to speed for this teaching assignment.
I want to ensure you that we are doing everything we can to maintain the same level of care and instruction for your sons until Mr. Orlando is able to return. While this situation is unanticipated and challenging, I am confident that the Priory community can come together to support one another.
Thank you for your time.
Director of the High School
