Last week, longtime math teacher Jim Forthoffer unexpectedly retired mid-year, leaving the administration scrambling to find replacements. 

Jim Forthoffer retired mid-year and the full-time replacement teachers for his classes will begin on Monday Sept. 30.

“The situation is… less than ideal, but sometimes these things happen and we need to deal with it and try to move forward,” Principal David Grissom said.

Depending on the class, Grissom said that Forthoffer’s full time replacements for periods 0-5 are, in this order, Jenifer Lewis, Noelle Mendoza, Marcia Babiak, Christopher Chang, and Jim McGuirk, who will start on Monday, Sept. 30.
