Missing School PrincipalToday, the first day of the new year for the Emery Unified School District is marked by a dramatic no show from the newly hired but controversial Anna Yates Elementary School Principal, Russom Mesfun, an event likely initiated by District Superintendent John Rubio the Tattler has learned. Mr Rubio, who was responsible for the hiring of Mr Mesfun, announced more information would be made public on Thursday regarding the missing school principal.
Asked directly, Superintendant Rubio was cagey but he hinted that if intractable problems arose between a new Principal and staff at the school, he would support the staff. He indicated he would be filling in personally for the absent Principal, at least temporarily. The District has also recently hired a new Assistant Principal for Anna Yates, Barry LaBasse. The assistant principal is a newly created position for the school.
Superintendent Rubio said the District would reveal all that could legally be revealed regarding the sudden shake up at Anna Yates, starting Thursday.
The hiring of Principal Mesfun caused a stir within the pages of the Tattler recently. Several teachers from another school district that claimed prior negative interaction with Mr Mesfun made alarming comments regarding Emery hiring him. Those stories and comments can be accessed HERE and HERE.
The Tattler will closely follow this breaking story and report as events unfold.
