Official Communications

The purpose of this section is to provide an orderly listing of official communications from Kraybill Site Council and LM. Any comments from the Kraybill Revival Team will be made in orange italics. Some of the early LM communications were alarming but be assured that Kraybill is not closing and there will be an orderly transition toward independence.

Tuesday, March 27, 2018 - From Kraybill Site Council

Monday, March 26, 2018 - From LM Superintendent Pam Tieszen

Comments: This was an answer to prayer! Kraybill will remain open, but there will be many meetings between LM and Kraybill to determine the best path towards independence.

Monday, March 19, 2018 - From LM Superintendent Pam Tieszen

Comments: With news of Kraybill remaining open and gaining independence, enrollment numbers are increasing. Enroll now to keep us growing even more!

Comments: See FAQ section for more discussion on this. We do not intend to combine classes.

Comments: See FAQ section for more discussion on this.

Comments: We disagree with the LM Finance Committee's methodology and determination.

Wednesday, March 14, 2018 - From LM Superintendent Pam Tieszen

Comments: In case you only started reading here, Kraybill will not be closed in 2018-19 due to the overwhelming Kraybill community response and the efforts of the Kraybill Site Council.

Comments: While trying not to dwell on the past and assignment of blame, the decline in enrollment since the LM merger came from many factors outside the control of Kraybill. By gaining autonomy, we can address these factors and create revival.

Saturday, March 10, 2018 - From LM Superintendent Pam Tieszen

Comments: This was the first notice to the Kraybill community that something was amiss. While positioned as being only an information-gathering meeting, it felt to many like a proclamation of an already-determined outcome. This feeling rallied the Kraybill community and started this Kraybill Revival Movement. We pray that you too join with us in this exciting journey.
