FRAMINGHAM – A Framingham High vice principal is taking a leave of absence, announced Principal Carrie Banach.
Vice Principal Mark Albright will be undergoing treatment for cancer, said the Principal.
Albright will be taking an extended leave of absence beginning January 2, 2019.
The extent of the leave has yet to be determined but the prognosis is positive, said Banach.
Meaghan Sullivan, a current math teacher who has completed her principal/assistant principal certification, will be covering Albright’s responsibilities with the Class of 2022 until he returns.
In addition, Sullivan’s math classes be covered by appropriately credentialed long-term substitutes.
Albright sent an email to the students in the Class of 2022 to inform them that he has been diagnosed with cancer.
“While I am gone, my own expectations are simple. 1. I expect to fight this cancer and to beat it with the help of family, friends and my medical team. 2. I expect to be back at school before the end of the year so we can finish freshman year together,” wrote Albright to the freshmen class.
“The administration, faculty, and staff will work collaboratively to ensure a seamless transition for all students. I appreciate your support during this time of transition. Our thoughts and hearts are with Mr. Albright and his family,” said Banach in a letter to parents.
