  • 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.

  • Free Seasonal Flu Shots for Students

    flu shot The Republic School District, in cooperation with Jordan Valley Community Health Center, is offering
    free seasonal flu vaccine to Republic students as supply allows.
    The following conditions would prevent your child from receiving flu vaccine: allergy to vaccine components and moderate or severe illnesses.
    If you are interested in your child receiving the inactivated influenza vaccine (Flu Shot), please complete and sign a consent form and return to your school nurse by October 15th. CLICK HERE FOR THE FORM.
    Take note: The consent form asks for the student's commercial insurance information so that it can be billed. If insurance does not cover immunizations the vaccine will be paid for by the VFC program. Either way, the vaccination is FREE to all families.    
    If you have additional questions about the program, please contact your school nurse.

  • School Picture Retakes Update

    This message is in regards to the delay in receiving school pictures. The district has been in contact with Lifetouch, the vendor who takes and develops school pictures, and they are very apologetic about this situation. They have informed the district that they have recently implemented new software and it is causing an unexpected delay in getting pictures returned to families. That said, they are ensuring that families will receive the original pictures prior to currently scheduled retake days EXCEPT FOR SWEENY ELEMENTARY. For Sweeny only, picture retake day will be rescheduled for a future date to be determined and will NOT take place on October 2. As soon as a new date is determined for Sweeny we will share out. Thank you for your patience!

  • 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.
