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!
Quarantine periods can be shortened with a negative COVID19 test. If your child tests negative for COVID19 on a sample collected on days 5, 6 or 7 from the date of exposure, they may return to school without restrictions on day 8 after exposure if negative test results are provided to the nurse. The date in which the student can "test out" of quarantine depends on the type of COVID19 test taken. Also, home tests are not accepted. Questions can be referred to your child's school nurse.
Rapid antigen testing is available through our Health Services Department by appointment for those wanting to "test out" of quarantine and also for those experiencing COVID19 symptoms. This test may only be administered on day 7 of quarantine for "testing out" purposes. Please contact Shawna Walker at 417.732.7289 to schedule this optional testing (no sooner than 24 hours after notification of quarantine for those wanting to "test out").
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. The schedule for distribution of ISRs for students who participated in state assessments last spring is as follows:
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 Dr. Jennifer Renegar, District Test Coordinator at 732-3605, ext 6014 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
