March 15, 2011

Dear Parents and Students:

The administration and staff of Manual High School is committed to providing a sound academic environment for all students. Due to Ms. Carrie Shafer’s recent resignation, I am working with teachers in science department to place a qualified teacher in the affected Advanced Anatomy/Physiology and MST Biology classes. In fact, members of the faculty have stepped forward and offered to give up planning periods in order to cover classes so that high level instruction may continue. While I understand that some individuals may have concerns regarding this situation, I assure everyone that this matter is a top priority which will be dealt with immediately and that a break in instruction will not occur. I thank you for your patience and understanding during this time and encourage students and parents to contact the appropriate counselor, and assistant principal or me directly with questions regarding the issue.


Larry A. Wooldridge
