Throughout the pandemic Republic School District has been proud to partner with our families and employees regarding COVID19 testing. While we are committed to continuing this partnership, unfortunately the national supply shortage of COVID19 tests is impacting our ability to maintain our current testing abilities. Our most recent order of COVID19 tests provided by the state was only 20% filled. This means we only received 80 of the 400 ordered tests, and we are unsure when we will receive more.
While we will continue to pursue more COVID19 tests so that we can provide a test to any student or employee who is exhibiting symptoms, for the time being we regretfully have to limit our testing availability to employees only. We are hopeful this testing limitation is short lived. As soon as more tests are received we will open the opportunity back up to students as well. Thank you for your understanding!
Below is a list of free testing sites along with vaccine opportunities.
All patrons are invited to an opportunity to listen, learn and share with Superintendent, Dr. Pearce at "Pearce's Listening Post." This hour-long event will take place on Tuesday, January 25 from 5:30-6:30 p.m. in the Republic High School library. Dr. Pearce and other district personnel will be there to share about district curriculum pieces. We hope to see you there!
Republic School District has developed protocols to address the COVID19 pandemic. These protocols are outlined in the Return to Learn Plan, which was last updated on January 6, 2022. CLICK HERE to review the full Return to Learn handbook which also serves as the district's SRCSP plan as required by DESE.

Republic School District proudly offers bus services for ALL students in our district! Providing this service requires a large number of trained drivers, and we need more! To avoid having to extend the length of current bus routes, spending funds on chartering buses (who are also seeing driver shortages) and/or reducing the number of trips and experiences for students outside our campuses...WE NEED MORE BUS DRIVERS!
Please share this opportunity with anyone that is interested in making an impact on students and filling this need! CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS AND TO APPLY!
Republic School District is excited to announce that our school based health clinic partnership with Jordan Valley Health Centers opened October 1!
One Jordan Valley community health worker is available to work with our school nurses to coordinate a virtual visit with a Jordan Valley doctor or nurse practitioner for any student or employee that is sick and needs to be seen by a practitioner for the following illnesses: strep throat, ear infection, sinus infection, rash, pink eye, stomach flu, bug bites, lice and congestion. After being seen by a provider the student/employee will be able to return to class/work OR they will be given a diagnosis and will be ready to go home. If necessary, the practitioner will call in a prescription to the patient's pharmacy for them to pay for and pick-up.
This partnership is made possible primarily by funds provided by Jordan Valley Health Centers. Beyond office space for the onsite community health worker, this program has no other financial obligations for the district. Parents and employees will never receive a bill for care. If the patient has insurance, that insurance will receive the bill. If the patient does not have insurance, Jordan Valley Health Centers covers the cost of the visit and patients only have to pay for prescriptions, when needed.
This service will be optional, but available to all students and employees. Paper registration forms were sent home with students September 13 and will need to be completed and returned to school before they can be seen by the practitioner. You can also print a form and return it to school at www.republicschools.org/Page/4772. We're excited and thankful for this opportunity to partner with Jordan Valley Health Centers!
The new Early Childhood Center with high wind shelter along with the gymnasium/high wind shelter construction projects are in the works! Visit https://www.republicschools.org/constructionupdates to follow the progress. The goal is for these projects to be completed by the fall of 2022.
