GOODMAN, Mo. (AP) - School officials in Goodman plan to rebuild an elementary school badly damaged in a tornado but until that work is done students will be relocated to schools in nearby Neosho.

Meagan Spangler, spokeswoman for the Neosho School District, says bus routes are being determined to take the 320 kindergarten through fifth-grade students at Goodman Elementary to Neosho.

Spangler says the goal is to keep students with their teachers and with as many familiar faces as possible.

The Joplin Globe reports (https://bit.ly/2p5TXuA ) that Spangler says no timetable has been established for rebuilding the school.

An EF-2 tornado hit the town Tuesday night, tearing off part of the school’s wall and roof. It also damaged a fire station and several other buildings but no serious injuries were reported.
