Cox will contact parents over the break:
This email is to inform you that when your student returns to East Middle School on Tuesday, Jan. 5, 2016, there will be a new interim principal Mrs. Barbara Cox. Dr. Jason Weaver will continue to serve as assistant principal. Mrs. Cox is a long-time former Joplin Schools teacher and a retired principal of North Middle School. Please watch your mail over the holidays for an introduction letter from Mrs. Cox and more details about the coming semester. Mr. Sexson will continue to work for the district in another capacity.
We did not make a formal announcement to students. However, it is possible that your student is aware of this change. When you receive the letter from Mrs. Cox, please share her information with your student. She will formally introduce herself to students on the first day of school in January. She is excited to meet the students and to share her expertise with East Middle School and the district during this transition.
Please feel free to call or email me if you have any additional questions.
Jason Cravens Executive Director 417-625-5200 Ext. 2005
