  • The Early Childhood Center is a Peanut Free and Latex Aware Campus 

    Please be reminded products containing peanuts or made with latex are not allowed at EC.  Please check all labels to ensure that the product has not been manufactured in a facility that has peanuts or does not contain latex. Because allergies can be life-threatening, we are asking for each family's support in checking their child's belongings for peanut products or items with latex before sending them to school. We thank you in advance for your precaution and respect in helping us to keep our school safe for all.

District Announcements

  • Elementary Progress and Grade Reports Distributed Electronically Starting 9/20

    It’s time to begin sharing student progress with our families! This year elementary progress and grade reports will be distributed via email (like secondary students receive) instead of distributing printed copies. Please make sure you have an updated email on file with your child’s school office. The first progress report will be distributed on Friday, September 20. Students in 1st grade through 5th grade will receive their reports via email. However, kindergarten students will instead receive a hard copy in backpacks summarizing their progress from first quarter on September 20. As a reminder, the district utilizes the standards based grading system for elementary students. For details visit https://www.republicschools.org/sbg.

  • New Visitor Management System

    As we kick off the new school year, we are also kicking off a new visitor management system that will help us electronically record and check the sex offender registry for anyone who visits and accesses our school buildings.  If you plan to visit our schools for class parties, as a guest speaker, volunteer (additional background check form still needed https://www.republicschools.org/Page/1189), to have lunch with a student, contractor, etc. you'll need to bring with you a state issued picture ID as a way to check in with our front offices.  We are excited about implementing this system as it helps us continue our focus of creating a safe and secure learning environment for our students and employees.

  • Important Birthday Treat Information

    At the August 15 Board of Education meeting board policy ADF (district wellness policy) was discussed. The conversation mainly centered around one component of the policy which states that the district will follow USDA Smart Snacks for celebrations and birthdays for students in kindergarten through 12th grade. After much discussion, the Board has asked the district to "pause" on the implementation of requiring that birthday and celebration treats meet USDA Smart Snack requirements. During this time the Board has requested that district administration and health services department investigate what is mandated by the state and federal government regarding this component of policy ADF. Administration will provide the Board of Education with this information and possible alternatives for review. During this review period the district will implement policy ADF as it did during the 2018-19 school year. Therefore, it will not be necessary to consult the USDA Smart Snack requirements until further notice.

  • State Assessment Individual Student Reports

    Each spring students across the district participate in state assessments (MAP and EOC). We have been notified by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) that Individual Student Reports (ISR) are available.  For students currently in grades 6-12, ISRs will be distributed on September 9 for those who participated in state assessments last spring.  For students currently in grades 4 & 5, ISRs will be distributed to families during Parent Teacher Conferences the week of October 28 (more information to come).  
     
    Information for how to interpret your child's results will be included with the ISR.  If you have any questions or would like to see your child's report prior to the distribution times, please contact your child's school counselor or Jennifer Renegar, District Test Coordinator (732-3605, ext 6014).
