An investigation by the Diocese of Des Moines was conducted at St. Joseph School regarding the school administrator after a series of internal concerns were presented to the diocese.
The outcome of the investigation pointed to serious irregularities in the school administration under her direction. The principal was advised of these and invited to remain in place for the remainder of the school year on the condition that the situation remain private. She chose otherwise.
The parish and school community regret this turn of events but assure Mrs. Phyllis Konchar of appreciation for her 19 years of service to the school, wish her well and assure her of our prayers.
