Shame on Shen for not mentioning the deaths of the two High School East employees. I bet if they worked in the Ivory Tower they would be mentioned.

A. I am not sure what you are talking about. As far as I know, one staff member and one retired staff member has passed away in the past month. Our procedures are as follows: When a staff member passes away, we wait until we have information about the arrangements and then the public information officer sends a list-Shen. We do not do so for retired employees because there are too many and we don’t always find out.

In the case of the staff member who passed, the public information officer was out, so the list-Shen was sent by the Assistant Superintendent for Human Resources. Also, the Board of Education held a moment of silence at their meeting for both individuals and the superintendent attended the wakes.
