Due to a number of circumstances, we have seen several departures from the school. In order to ensure full communication, I have decided to announce the details of those departures for you all.
As he announced, Nathan Dayspring has moved to New York proper, in order to run the new Elpis headquarters that has been set up there. The boathouse, at this time, is vacant. He will be available for consultation on matters within Elpis' ambit, so he will be seen around the Institute on occasion.
Jean-Paul Beaubier, Jeanne-Marie Beaubier and Shiro Yoshida have gone to Muir Island for powers training and personal assistance. Danielle Moonstar has also sought help with her powers, on Attilan, where she hopes to complete her college education.
Noriko Kikuchi has returned home to Japan, to reconnect with her parents and to complete her final year of high school. Johnny Gallo has returned home to assist in his father's recovery, and Victor Borkowski has gone home to help care for his ill mother. Sarah Vale has also returned home to her family.
Scott Summers and Dr. Jean Grey are currently on vacation, however they will not be returning to the school. In order to expand the West Coast Annex to more than a training facility, I have asked them to relocate there. With the aftermath of Day Zero and the San Diego earthquake, it is less and less safe for mutants in this country, and it is apparent that the current team is under considerable strain. To this end, I am establishing a second team at the Annex, to be created by Scott and Jean.
In order to cover those classes previously taught by those who have left, a number of the existing teachers have stepped up to take those on. I hope the students will cooperate with them and make this transition run smoothly.
I thank you for your patience during this difficult time and I wish the best to all those who have moved on. If you have any questions, my door is, of course, always open.
