On Monday afternoon, Cheshire School District administrators confirmed that Cheshire High School Principal Kevin Ryan was granted a medical leave of absence and would not take part in any school-related functions for the next two weeks.
On Tuesday, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Greg Florio stated that whether Ryan will be ready to resume his duties as principal once the 2012/2013 school year begins would be an issue he and other administrators would discuss over the next few weeks and possibly into the summer.
The medical condition that has forced Ryan to temporarily leave his position has not been disclosed. Reached for comment by The Herald, Ryan, via email, indicated that, earlier in the school year, he had informed Florio of a medical issue with which he has been dealing. After consulting with his doctors, however, he was advised recently that he needed to stay home.
Florio has stated that he and others will handle Ryan's duties through the end of the year.
