The Springfield-Greene County Health Department has released information in regards to schools implementing modified quarantines. This allows students to continue attending school after a properly masked, low-risk exposure to COVID19. In response, the Republic School District now requires all students in kindergarten and older in addition to all adults to wear masks while on campus or on our buses.
Take note, if your child is exposed and qualifies for a modified quarantine you will receive an email notification, not a phone call. However, if your child needs to traditionally quarantine due to a high-risk, unmasked exposure you will receive an individual phone call.
In compliance with RSMo 115.127.5, notice is hereby given to the qualified voters of the Republic R-III School District of Greene and Christian Counties of Missouri, that the Annual Election of said District will be held on Tuesday, the sixth day of April, 2021, beginning at six o’clock a.m., and closing at seven o’clock p.m., of said day, to vote upon school board members. Candidates for school board may file at the central office located at 518 North Hampton, Republic, Missouri. Filing will begin on December 15, 2020, at 8:00 a.m. and will continue during the district’s regular business hours, which are Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Except for the first and last day of filing, filing will not occur on days that the school district’s central office is closed due to inclement weather or on the following holidays and breaks when the school district’s central office is closed: December 23, 2020 through January 1, 2021. Filing will end on January 19, 2021 at 5:00 p.m. There are 2 positions available with three-year terms.
Ballot placement for candidates filing on the first day shall be determined by random drawing; candidates filing on subsequent days shall be placed on the ballot in order of filing.
For those who have recently been placed on quarantine or who will possibly be in the future, we wanted to share some important information. As you are probably aware, those who are directly exposed at school to a positive COVID19 case are contacted by an individual phone call. Due to the increased number of positive cases and the number of administrators available across the district to make these individual phone calls, Springfield-Greene County Health Department has begun stepping in to assist the district with these calls. The Health Department utilizes a third party company called Maximus to complete these quarantine calls. Therefore, should your student need to quarantine you will be contacted by either a school administrator or a Maximus employee on behalf of Springfield-Greene County Health Department. The call from Maximus will be from a 314 area code phone number.
Winter weather season is quickly approaching! The Republic School District will continue with the "snow day policy" we have utilized for the last few years. Should winter weather and/or poor road conditions impact our ability to have school in person, we will implement a snow day like we have done in the past.
Each day we are asking families to do a wellness check of all students before they come to school. Employees will be doing this as well. Following these guidelines will help everyone stay healthy!
Below are the signs you will see on the entrances of our facilities. Keep in mind, only essential visitors will be allowed and must follow these protocols.
