  • Car Line Sign Required

    Please ensure that you have a car line sign.  If you do not have a car line sign we will ask that you pull around to the office, show identification and obtain a car line sign.  Remember, please do not arrive in the car line until 3:15 p.m.  The city police are very concerned about the amount of traffic backing up into Main Street.  If there were a need to get emergency vehicles through that congested traffic it would be very difficult.

  • No Tax Levy Increase Bond Issue, April 6, 2021Video


    To address the upcoming growth in our community, academic needs of our youngest learners and the safety of our students and employees; Republic School District is proposing a no tax levy increase bond issue on the April 6, 2021 election ballot. The following projects are part of this proposal: 


    • A new Republic Early Childhood Center (EC) with attached high wind shelter on district owned land at the corner of Hines and Hampton.
    • A gymnasium/high wind shelter at Schofield Elementary, the only building that does not have a gym.
    • Funds to acquire property for a future new school building in 4-5 years.


    These projects are estimated to cost $16 million and to be completed in the fall of 2022.


    Regardless of the bond issue passing or failing, the tax levy will not change from its current rate of just over $4.15.

  • CDC, Washington University & GCHD on Campus

    CDC In our continued effort to help fight the spread of COVID19 we are working closely with the Springfield-Greene County Health Department on an exciting school-based project with Washington University and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This project is a study of our COVID19 prevention strategies and quarantine/isolation procedures. These organizations are working with schools all across Missouri to gain insight on best practices that can be shared with others across the nation. They will be onsite in our schools over the next few weeks.

    Participation in this project is completely voluntary! If your student tests positive for COVID19 or was exposed while at school, your student may be offered a free COVID19 saliva test (with parental consent) and asked to answer some questions that will assist us and our public health partners in knowing more about how to keep students safe in our schools during this pandemic.

  • mask up Modified Quarantine & Masking Details

    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. 

    CLICK HERE for details on how this will impact Republic students. 

    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.

  • RepMO Return to Learn Plan

    Return to learn The Republic School District has developed a three phased plan with health-related protocols to address COVID19. This plan was created in conjunction with the Springfield-Greene County Health Department in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The protocols are based on best practices from schools and businesses around the globe and recommendations from DESE and our community. They are subject to change moving forward. 
    The goal of these protocols is to mitigate the risk of exposure to COVID-19 and other illnesses by reducing the number of personal and surface contacts students and employees experience while at school. While reduction is the goal, it is impossible to completely eliminate all contact and therefore risk of exposure.
    • The RepMO Return to Learn Phases Handbook can be found HERE.
    • A list of FAQs can be found HERE.
    • The district has created a webpage that will be updated throughout the year in regards to COVID19 protocols and response: https://www.republicschools.org/healthupdates
