2.7: January 11-15

Dear students and parents,

Hope you all had a relaxing holiday spent with family and friends. I wish I could have been in the classroom to start the new year serving my fifth graders but unfortunately I will be starting the year on a medical leave.

On December 21st I was rushed into surgery to treat my condition, large intestine with perforation. That afternoon a section of my colon was removed along with my appendix. The following morning my colon was reattached during a second surgery. I returned home after nine days of hospitalization. The past three weeks or recovery have been difficult but I am progressing slowly. I am hopeful to return to work in two weeks on January 25. I would like to thank Todd Ragland for stepping in during my leave and I will continue to communicate with him on a regular basis during the next couple of weeks going over our lesson plans.

Hope all goes according to plan and that I will be back soon.

Thanks,

William
