Mike Krulfeld recently returned to his job as director of student activities at Yorktown High School, having been put on administrative leave in early June for reasons that were not made clear to the 24-year employee of Arlington Public Schools or the public that rallied to his cause.
Krulfeld was reinstated last month by the system’s human-resources department. He received an e-mail from the county telling him it was OK to return, but there was no further explanation given of what the school system had been investigating, according to sources within Arlington Public Schools.
Following the reinstatement, Krulfeld chose not to comment to the Sun Gazette on the situation. Arlington Public Schools spokesman Frank Bellavia declined to comment, citing the school system’s policy on personnel matters.
Krulfeld received significant support from Yorktown coaches and the community during the time he was on leave, with the School Board receiving hundreds of messages calling for his reinstatement, one insider told the Sun Gazette.
