Background

Air Quality Near Schools The listing of area schools was pulled from a USA Today database of roughly 128,000 schools across the U.S. The ranking number indicates where the school falls within that overall list; the higher the ranking, the higher the estimated toxicity in the air around that school.

School Incident Reports This database allows you to search through school safety incident reports collected during the school year from Springfield and Nixa public schools. Reports date back to the start of the 2007-08 school year.

Clinic Offers Free Shots The Westside Public Health Center kicks off back-to-school vaccination clinics on Aug. 3. Immunizations will be provided at no cost. For more information click link above or call 417-874-1220.
