INCLEMENT WEATHER INFORMATION:
With uncertainty surrounding Thursday’s weather, an early dismissal from school may become necessary. Dismissing students early will always be the last alternative, but we want to insure that we are proactive in communicating the proper procedures with patrons if it does become necessary.
Because of schedule complications that arise for parents in the situation of an early dismissal, our hope is this message will serve as a tool to help you make accommodations if necessary. In the event that school is dismissed early, the announcement will be made through a voice call, our website, our Facebook page and Twitter feed along with local media channels.
The earliest that school will be dismissed is 12:00 p.m. for middle school and high school students and 1:00 p.m. for elementary students. If your child’s normal transportation plan is of emergency concern, please contact your child’s grade level teacher (PK-5th grade), PRIDE teacher for middle school students or the high school’s main office for students in grades 9-12 to make alternative arrangements.
If our area is impacted by inclement weather, we thank you in advance for your patience as we focus on getting each of our students home safely.
SENIOR PROJECT BARNES AND NOBLE BOOKFAIR
Join us for the “Senior Project Barnes and Noble Bookfair” on December 5 from 4:00-8:00 p.m. (at Barnes & Noble). This is a great opportunity to support both the high school and elementary libraries. Students will be performing at the bookfair, providing face painting, musical performances, displaying their art work and much more!
All proceeds go back to Republic Schools District libraries.
The Republic community is a wonderful place to live and raise one’s family. Residents of our great community are proud of our Ozark heritage and even more proud to be a Republic Tiger. The Republic community understands the need for growth and always stands with an open hand to welcome a new member “into the fold”. The Republic School District appreciates the support of our community and is humbled to serve and prepare its youth to positively impact the future of Republic, the Ozarks, and ultimately our nation. Our district is working ardently to provide the best education to Republic students and cultivate a reputation of excellence that will assist our community in its pursuit of prosperity. The district offers many academic and extra-curricular opportunities to challenge and inspire our students. Due to the tremendous number of opportunities, I would ask that you continue to investigate our website or contact our buildings to see what may be of interest to you and your child.
Although the number of opportunities available to our students is an obvious strength, our true strength lies in our staff and our dedication to Republic’s children. Dedication to service and children is what propels common people to do uncommon acts. This dedication is what inspires our staff to continually strive to improve our craft so that we may provide the best educational opportunities to our students in and out of the classroom. Likewise, this dedication results in relationships that meet the age old adage of “People don’t care what you know until they know how much you care”. The Republic R-III School District exists for one purpose and that is to prepare its youth to positively impact our future.
Thank you for entrusting us with your most valuable possession – your child and your child’s future.
Republic R-III School District
