Principal Dr. Jon Clark, who has been dealing with brain cancer for over 10 years, announced to students and parents this afternoon he will undergo another surgery Sept. 6.

After having laser surgery last December to clean up a small enhancement, Dr. Clark says doctors recently discovered a few weeks ago the enhancement is still there.

This time, the surgery will be a craniotomy, which, according to Johns Hopkins Medicine Health Library, includes removing part of the skull to expose the brain. After this procedure, Dr. Clark said his recovery time will most likely be longer than in the past.

While Dr. Clark is away, John Raimondo will fill his position.
