Please note that products containing latex are not allowed at RMS when school resumes session in August. Students in our school have latex allergies, some severe. Because allergies can be so severe and life-threatening, we are asking for support of all Middle School staff and families in checking their child's belongings for latex before sending them to school. We thank you in advance for your precaution and respect in helping us to keep our school safe for all. Most common products would include balloons, rubber toys, adhesive tape, bandages and rubber/latex bracelets.
(1) Please be mindful as you are sending in items from home. This includes supplies for classroom projects and special occasion decorations. We want to maintain a latex aware campus to keep our students safe.
(2) Teachers and staff will watch for items that may contain latex and remove them from the premises. This includes balloons, balls, rubber cement, toys from home, rubber bands and duct tape. If we cannot, with 100% certainty, verify that items are latex free we will error on the side of caution and remove them or ask the nurse immediately. If your student is bringing a questionable item from home please contact the school nurse to determine if it can safely be at school.
(3) Please know that the PE and playground equipment the students are currently using has been properly treated. Please help us educate your child as the mere presence of this equipment may make them think their football from home is also safe.
(4) Again, thank you in advance for your caring and attention to this matter to keep our Middle School safe for all students. AVOIDANCE is the only way to keep our high risk students from having a medical emergency happen at school.
Republic School District invites parents of our students to complete the short survey found at the link below. Your feedback allows us to see at what level we are meeting the needs of our students, families and community at large. Preparing each student for a successful future is our mission, and the information gathered through this survey provides us a measure to see how well we are achieving this goal.

The survey should take approximately 10 minutes to complete and is open through October 28. Thank you in advance!
In partnership with Jordan Valley Community Health Clinic a FREE student flu vaccine clinic will be offered on October 25 and 27 using the below schedule. Take note that only the flu shot will be offered as the flu mist is not available this year. To sign your child up to receive a free flu shot complete the consent form HERE and submitting it to your child's school. Also, the consent form indicates there are "qualifications" to receive the flu shot. Please fill out the form as it applies to your child, but know that all children who sign up at Republic will receive the flu shot at no cost, regardless of insurance coverage.
Each spring students across the district participate in state assessments. We have been notified by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) that Individual Student Reports (ISR) are available. During Parent Teacher Conferences, which will be held the week of October 31 (more information to come), individual student reports will be distributed to students who were in grades 3 and 4 that completed the MAP-GLA test last spring. Students who are in grades 5-8 that completed the MAP-GLA assessment last spring will receive individual reports attached to their next progress report from the Republic Middle School. Students who are now at the high school in grade 9 will receive their reports during an upcoming Monday WIN time. A guide to interpreting your child's results will also be included in a parent/guardian letter which will also be shared at that time. If you have any questions or would like to see your child's report prior to the aforementioned distribution times, please contact your child's school counselor.
