SEABROOK, NH — After being told he would no longer be needed, a Seabrook school janitor is fighting for his job, according to the Hampton Union.

On April 11, supporters of maintenance supervisor Larry Schrempf attended a school board meeting in an attempt to discuss Schrempf''s employment status in a public forum; the board refused, citing the personnel exemption to the public Right to Know Law, the article noted.

Schrempf, who has been away from his position at the school for medical reasons for almost two years after he developed poor circulation in his leg due to diabetes about four years ago, has had to re-learn how to walk after losing his right foot due to complications from his diabetes, the article stated.

According to the article, Schrempf was recently called into the School Administrative Unit (SAU) 21 office by the district''s human resources manager and told that the School Board had decided not to bring him back.

"I was totally shocked," Schrempf said. "I left there crying."
