In order to reduce the amount of visitors and exchanging of items at school, RHS will no longer allow deliveries of outside food during the school day. This includes fast food brought by parents/guardians and deliveries from restaurants. Thank you for helping us honor this policy to ensure the health of our students and staff.
RHS will provide tutoring in the core subject areas of English, math, science, and social studies in the RHS library. The days and times for tutoring are:
Tuesday: 2:45 pm - 3:45 pm
Wednesday: 2:45 pm - 3:45 pm
Thursday: 2:45 pm - 3:45 pm
ACT Prep is available every Tuesday and Thursday in the RHS library. This is a GREAT way to get some practice, tips, and support to help you increase your ACT score.
Students who want to receive tutoring and/or ACT Prep must report to a teacher in the library by 3:00 p.m. Tutoring teachers who do not have students to work with will be allowed to leave after 3:00 pm if they are not working with a student. Therefore, students who attend club meetings prior to tutoring/ACT Prep need to check in with the tutoring teacher BEFORE going to the club meeting to let the teacher know they will be attending tutoring/ACT Prep after the club meeting finishes.
To ride the tutoring bus after tutoring or ACT Prep, students need to sign up for the bus BEFORE 1:00 pm each day using the following link: Bus Sign-Up Form
You may also sign up and ride the bus if you attend a club meeting. If you are not on the bus list by 1:00 pm each day that you need it, you will not be able to ride. Bus passes will be available in the library at 3:45 for those on the list. You MUST have a pass to get on the bus. The bus will take you home, but the time will vary depending on the route each day.
To address the upcoming growth in our community, academic needs of our youngest learners and the safety of our students and employees; Republic School District is proposing a no tax levy increase bond issue on the April 6, 2021 election ballot. The following projects are part of this proposal:
These projects are estimated to cost $16 million and to be completed in the fall of 2022.
Regardless of the bond issue passing or failing, the tax levy will not change from its current rate of just over $4.15.

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 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.
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.
