MCCOOK, Nebraska -- The McCook School District will be looking for a new elementary school principal.
At its regular meeting Monday night, the McCook Board of Education accepted with the resignation of McCook Elementary Principal Lynda Baumbach, who has been with the McCook Public School system for 24 years.
In her letter of resignation, Baumbach requested to be considered for the Early Retirement Incentive Plan.
The board also the resignations of Krystal Weber, 8th grade science teacher and head volleyball coach and Debbie Arp, McCook Junior High Resource teacher.
Weber, who has been with McCook Schools for 10 years, said in her resignation letter she will leave after the current school year to join her husband, who has accepted a new position in Kentucky.
Arp has been with MPS for three years and said in her resignation letter that she has decided not to continue as a resource teacher at this time and instead will pursue a post graduate degree rather than a second bachelor's degree in special education.
The board accepted all three resignations with gratitude for the years of service given.
Board members Shane Messersmith and Diane Lyons commended Weber and Arp for their time at MPS.
