SARCOXIE, Mo. - -

     The Sarcoxie School district has pulled the plug on Facebook.

     The school's superintendent says the social media site has "become a forum for negativity."

     He also adds that too much of his time is spent monitoring the page for profanity and inappropriate comments.

     The district is re-designing its internet presence with a new web page and plans to offer parents a smartphone app for district alerts and information.
