Retired Shawnee Mission East principal Dr. Karl Krawitz is back in the Kansas City area after having spent several days in Maryland recuperating from a stroke he suffered while visiting family in early July.

New SM East principal John McKinney reports that he spoke with Krawitz last week and that he was back home and continuing physical therapy. The prognosis for a total recovery is strong, said McKinney.

“With persistence he will back to full strength in six to eight weeks with no noticeable effects from the stroke,” McKinney said.
