The SWR5 District has extra COVID-19 test that will be expiring in December. Rather than let them expire, we want to make them available to anyone in need. Please do not spend money on purchasing tests or a doctor's visit when you can call the nurses office (417-826-5652). Kathy will get the test ready so that someone can pick them up. Have a wonderful day, Tosha

Thank you parents for a great start to the school year! As with any new year, we are working out the kinks. Having said that, we have some areas that need attention for the safety of students and staff. The entrance to the teacher parking lot located behind the 3rd/4th building will be roped off from 7:30 am until 8:05 on school days. Please remember to drop your elementary students off in the large parking lot by the cafeteria so that they can go directly to their classrooms or breakfast.

Good evening, Southwest Families and Community, On behalf of the Southwest Board, I needed to clarify a couple of situations that are circulating through our district and community. The first rumor is about SRTC (VOTEC). I have been told that it has been stated that SW is doing away with students attending SRTC. In addition, it was stated that if parents wanted their student to attend that the parent would have to pay the tuition, and this was caused because of the ball fields costing too much. None of this is true. The district has never discussed doing away SRTC and would never ask parents to pay the tuition for SRTC. Tuition and ball fields are paid from two different funds so one does not affect the other. The other situation is regarding a Facebook post from Sunday night regarding the preschool playground needing to be weedeated and cleaned up. I am sad to say that I had no idea that the preschool playground had been overlooked. Once I found out, I immediately got it taken care of first thing this morning. If Mark Lawrence or I would have been contacted in the first place, it would have gotten it taken care of sooner. I have stated this before but want to emphasize that the Board is about what is best for the students and would never allow anything to hurt the academics of the students. Have a great evening, Ms. Tilford

Good evening, Southwest Families and Community, On behalf of the Southwest Board of Education, I needed to clarify a rumor that is circulating through our district. I have been told that it has been stated that the Southwest School District is not going to allow the summer ball program to play on the new fields once they are completed. This rumor is completely FALSE! There is no way that the school district would do this to the summer ball program. In addition, Board and I are completely supportive of this program and know the importance it is for the students and our communities. Although this is rumor is 100% wrong, I can see how it would concern parents and students. With that said, I felt like it was time for me to speak out and let you know that there is absolutely no way I would ever support something like this as the superintendent. I also want to reinforce that the Board is completely about what is best for the students and community would never allow anything to hurt the students or any activities which are important to them. Have a great weekend, Ms. Tilford
