Summer school is just around the corner, and we are excited about the offerings available to our students! As a reminder, all summer school programs are FREE! Registration can be done online, and the links can be found below. The deadline to enroll will be May 5.
Students participating will be enrolled in the grade level they will attend for the 2017-2018 school year (EX: current 5th graders will enroll at RMS as 6th graders, current 8th graders will enroll at RHS as 9th graders). This means that incoming kindergarten students are eligible to enroll as well!
Breakfast and lunch will be provided FREE of charge for all children 18 and under. We are excited to offer Spanish as a specials class for all of our elementary students again this year! Full transportation will not be provided by the district. However, a shuttle bus between RHS and RMS will be provided. Details can be found below.

Sweeny will house all students who regularly attend Sweeny and Lyon, while Price will house all students who regularly attend Price, Schofield, and McCulloch. If you do not attend the Republic School District, but are joining us for Summer SLAM and are unsure of the location you are to attend, please call 417.732.3690.
