Homecoming 2022 is just a couple of weeks away. We've asked patrons, community members, businesses, students, and staff for their thoughts and suggestions on this year's parade route. We are pleased to announce the parade route will return to the traditional route beginning at 1:00 p.m. on Friday, October 7, 2022.
The parade will start with a lineup at the corner of Missouri Avenue and Main Street, travel along Main St. and around the square, continue onto Main Street, and finally will disband in the West Plains Civic Center parking lot.
The entire community is invited to join in the excitement and view from downtown. Our homecoming parade is the only event in the school year where all 2,700 Zizzer students are together in the same place, at the same time. We ask that you take extra caution if you're near our parade route as we create this memorable experience for our Zizzer staff and students. Please prepare for Main Street and parts of Missouri Avenue to be blocked off before and after parade time.
Homecoming Friday will not be a typical early release day; instead, it will be a full school day with the following dismissal times. - South Fork, 3:45 p.m.; WPE, 2:50 p.m., ZPA, 3:30 p.m., and WPMS and WPHS, 3:40 p.m.
