• All Students Entering the 8th Grade Require Tdap Immunization


    The Missouri Department of Health is requiring all students entering the 8th grade to have a Tdap immunization (Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis) before the start of the school year.



    You may get the immunization from your doctor or the Howell County Health Department (256-7078). Please call as soon as possible to make your appointment as there could be a wait time to receive the shot.


    After your child receives the immunization, please send bring a copy to your child’s school nurse's office so it can be documented.


    If you have any questions, please call West Plains School District Lead School Nurse, at 256-6150.
