  • Roundabout Construction & Impact to RHS Entrances

    Construction of the roundabout on M Highway near the north entrance of Republic High School has begun. MoDOT has informed the district that the current north entrance of RHS is in the way of construction. Therefore, a temporary north entrance to RHS will be created the week of March 25 and will open to traffic the week of April 1, closing the current entrance. The current traffic flow at RHS will not be impacted by this as essentially the north entrance is just being shifted slightly to the east out of the way of construction. 
     
    The temporary entrance will be constructed of well-compacted rock/gravel that will withstand traffic, including loaded school buses. The approach pavement from M Highway onto the temporary entrance will be paved with asphalt. MoDOT and the City of Republic will share in the cost of the temporary entrance.
     
    Once the regular school year is over in May, the temporary entrance will be removed and all traffic entering and leaving the high school will have to use the west entrance off of ZZ Highway until the roundabout is completed prior to the beginning of the 2019-2020 school year in August. This means all summer school traffic will need to use the west entrance off of ZZ Highway. Thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation!

  • RHS After-School Traffic Flow Changes (starting March 18)

    Comments (-1)
  • RHS Families,

     

    In an effort to get our school buses out of the parking lot in a more efficient way we are implementing new traffic flow procedures. This will affect after-school traffic. Changes will go into effect when we return from Spring Break on Monday, March 18. These changes will be in place from 2:30 to 2:35 p.m. and will affect the Republic Road exit. Access to the Republic Road exit will be blocked off from 2:30 to 2:35 while student bus riders load buses. At 2:35 buses will be dismissed to begin their afternoon routes. Once buses are dismissed the Republic Road exit will be re-opened for parent and student drivers.

     

    This change in traffic flow will help us get our buses on their routes sooner, which will help get our students home in a more timely manner. Please see the map below for further information. 

     

    Sincerely,

     

    Tyler Overstreet

    Principal

    Republic High School

  • 2019-20 School Calendar & New Snow Day Make-Up Plans

    19.20 calendar The Board of Education approved the revised 2019-20 school calendar on February 21. CLICK HERE to review it. The calendar was revised to reflect changes regarding newly passed section 160.041, RSMo indicating that Missouri school district's must complete a minimum of 1044 hours of student instruction and "must include a minimum of 36 weather make-up hours for possible loss of attendance due to inclement weather and half the number of additional lost or cancelled hours up to 48, resulting in no more than 60 total make-up hours." 
     
    Because of this change in legislation, the Republic School District Board of Education has approved for the district to use the three built-in holidays (MLK Day, President's Day and Good Friday) as snow day make-ups for next school year. However, NO SNOW DAYS beyond Good Friday will be made up. Therefore, the last day of school will be a half day on Thursday, May 21. Thank you to the Board of Education for this decision as it allows for families to make definite summer plans.

  • Updated Elementary Boundaries for 2019-20 School Year

    Over the last few years our community has experienced many changes in regards to where people are living within our school district. That said, this has created disparity regarding the number of students in each of our elementary buildings. To best meet the needs of our students and to help us achieve our mission of "preparing each student for a successful future", it is important that each of our elementary buildings have similar numbers of students being served in them. We've been monitoring these changes, and brainstorming ways to address this disparity over the last several months. In doing so, it has been determined that the best solution will be to update the elementary boundaries which will be implemented for the 2019-20 school year. Visit https://www.republicschools.org/boundaryupdate for additional information. Impacted families will be notified via mailed letter and email the week of February 25.

  • flu Fighting the Flu

    This flu season has been particularly rough. As a reminder, the flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by the influenza virus. It can be spread from person-to-person through the air by coughing or sneezing or by touching an infected surface and carrying it to your nose or mouth. Check out the graphic for symptoms.
     
    Those experiencing flu-like symptoms should stay home from school and work until at least 24 hours after they no longer have fever without the use of medicine. We recommend consulting with a doctor and making sure those with the flu get plenty of rest and fluids.
     
    To learn more about the flu virus and prevention methods, visit https://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/index.html.
