Keeping students and employees safe and healthy while at school is our utmost priority! As we’ve navigated through this pandemic we have learned best practices and are making some adjustments beginning May 27 based on these and due to the fact positive cases are continuing to diminish. CLICK HERE to review the updated protocols. The biggest change will be that masks are no longer a requirement, they are optional. Per the Springfield Greene County Health Department this also means that traditional quarantine will be reimplemented and modified quarantine will not be an option.
We feel very optimistic that positive cases will remain low. However, it is important to note that in the situation that cases begin to rise again it is possible that we will need to reimplement some of our previous protocols, including required masking. We will continue to monitor the situation and consult with the Springfield Greene County Health Department.
Due to the number of diminishing positive COVID19 cases, the district will be changing the way in which these positive cases are reported. Instead of nightly email notifications, we will update this website every Monday with the number of cases we have received.
In addition, should a student or employee be a direct contact to a positive case while at school (within 6 feet for at least 15 minutes) they will be notified by the Springfield Greene County Health Department regarding quarantine instructions. In this case, guardians of quarantined or positive students should contact the school to report the student will not be at school. The school will then coordinate remote school work with the family. Quarantined or positive employees will need to coordinate with supervisors.
We’re excited for SUMMER SCHOOL 2021! The K-12 session will be June 2-25. New this year is the addition of a July session for our elementary students which will take place July 6-23. Updated health related protocols along with other important summer school details can be found at republicschools.org/summerschool. The biggest change is that masks will be optional. We can't wait to have a great summer of learning with our students!
ELEMENTARY FAMILIES: Open House for the June session of SLAM will be held in person at the school your student will attend for SLAM on Tuesday, June 1 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. (Last names A-L 5:30-6:15 and M-Z 6:30-7:15.)
