  • Modified Quarantine 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.

  • Calendar Change

    calendar change At the November 19 Board of Education meeting the Board approved a recommended adjustment to the 2020-21 school calendar by district administration. They voted to remove snow make-up days from Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Presidents’ Day and Good Friday. The Board completely agreed that reserving these as holidays will provide a guaranteed break for rest, deep cleaning of our facilities and simply being apart from one another to help slow the spread of COVID19.
     
    You may be wondering about what this means for snow day make-ups. We’ve been given some flexibility by DESE. Therefore, the district expects the last day of school to remain May 26, but should we have to miss more days than the flexibility from DESE allows, we may need to make some adjustments. As we know more about this in the spring we will share details.

  • Quarantine Phone Calls

    Q phone calls 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.

  • 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
