Mr & Ms Cranford, BAND DIRECTOR, had an unavoidable conflict and regretfully had to cancel.
A business-related commitment prevents Ms Linda Wise, BUSINESS EDUCATION, from attending, however, she sends her best regards to all of us.  
Mr Carlos Ortiz, MATH, and ACTING ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL, and Ms Ortiz were looking forward to joining us at La Fonda, but an unexpected travel conflict will prevent them from attending.  They wish us a "fantastic, fun reunion weekend." 
Similar for Ms Carol Conway McGuire, ENGLISH. Out of town travel will prevent her from attending.
We hope to see Ms Wise, Mr Cranford, Ms Conway McGuire, and Mr & Ms Ortiz at our 50th in 2021
