A Letter from West Plains Superintendent, Dr. Lori Wilson

Dear Parents, Students, & Community Members,
I want to thank all of you for your support, patience, and understanding during this unprecedented time in our world. It is with a heavy heart I share the news that the West Plains School District is extending our school closure through the remainder of the school year.
I know this announcement will bring more questions than we have answers at this point. How will this impact graduating seniors? What is the plan for kindergarten screening for the 2020-21 school year? Will there be an eighth-grade promotion? How will grades be reported? Will the district still hold summer school? When will students be able to collect their items currently located in the school building? What is the plan for re-entry? How does this affect MSHSAA activities and summer programs? These are just a few of the questions we are working hard to answer. We encourage you to stay connected with us as we provide regular updates to our Zizzer families.
Even though our buildings are closed, extended learning will continue. We will provide 5 Day Learning Plans each week through the end of the school year on Wednesday, May 13, 2020. Teachers will continue to check on the well-being of their students. Additionally, we will continue to support families by offering breakfast and lunch daily.
I realize this is a time of uncertainty and stress. Be assured we are doing all we can to support the children of our community as well as families. I am truly witnessing the collaborative power of our community. As our social media hashtag has stated since the beginning of this situation, we are #ZizzersStrongerTogether.
We will continue to provide frequent updates in the days and weeks to come. Thank you for your continued support.
Dr. Lori Wilson
