Lord Baltimore Elementary Principal & Asst. Principal On Admin. - 47 ABC - Delmarva's Choice

Lord Baltimore Elementary Principal & Asst. Principal On Admin. Leave

Posted: Updated:

OCEAN VIEW, Del. - A shock for parents and students at Lord Baltimore Elementary School in Sussex County, when it was announced that both the principal and assistant principal are now on administrative leave.

The school district won't comment on why John Turssline and Melissa Oates were placed on leave yesterday.  All they would say the decision was made, pending further action by the Board of Education, calling it a personnel matter.  

Susan Bunting, the superintendent for the Indian River School District said in a statement:

"Beginning on Tuesday, January 21, Gary Brittingham will serve as Lord Baltimore Elementary School's acting principal and Ann Marie Logullo will serve as acting assistant principal. Both will hold these positions until permanent replacements can be hired by the Board of Education. Mr. Brittingham is a former principal, assistant principal and assistant superintendent in the Indian River School District and has 32 years of school administrative experience. He is well-qualified to lead the school through this transition. Mrs. Logullo is currently an assistant principal at Southern Delaware School of the Arts and has held a variety of administrative positions in our district. She also possesses strong leadership skills and will be an asset to the school staff. The job of Lord Baltimore principal has been posted by the district and we plan to hire a permanent replacement soon. I would like to reassure parents that the recent changes in the school's administrative staff are not the result of any criminal activity or issues involving the safety and welfare of children. I again wish to thank everyone for their support and understanding during this time of transition."
