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.

The deadline for candidates to file for the Republic School District's Board of Education election ended on January 19. Two seats were available to be filled, and only two candidates filed. Although the two candidates that filed will be sworn in as members of the Board of Education in April during a reorganization meeting, their names will still be listed on the April 6 ballot. These two candidates are Anne Buchanan and incumbent, Todd Wojciechowski.
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.
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.
