    In April 2021, our community supported a no tax levy increase bond issue, which provided us the opportunity to build the new Early Childhood building – freeing up classroom spaces in many of our elementaries – as well as begin the purchase of land for future buildings. We’re excited to share that we have found a great piece of property near the City of Republic’s Parks and Recreation expansion that we officially purchased this week! This 78-acre tract will allow us to plan for and accommodate continued growth into the future.


    Republic School District purchased property near James River and Highway 60.

    We had a BLAST officially opening the Schofield Gymnasium/High Wind Shelter! This project was completed EARLY and UNDER BUDGET, and was made possible by our incredibly supportive community—THANK YOU!!! Check out this video for pictures and video of the ribbon cutting and open house. The looks of “WOWS” and “WOAHS” on our students’ and employees’ faces as they entered the facility for the first time say it all! As a reminder, the “gym” also doubles as a high wind shelter, which will house both Schofield and McCulloch in the event of inclement weather! We are so appreciative to have this awesome facility! 

    The Early Childhood Center is on track and on budget to open in July 2022!

    Our construction projects are running on time, on budget and will be done before we know it!

    The Schofield gym/high wind shelter is about ¾ complete. Over the last month crews installed bathroom elements, gym flooring and bleachers. Next up is finishing the gym floor, installing fencing on the exterior along with preparing for grass. The gym/high wind shelter is expected to be ready for use in mid-March! Details about opening events will be shared soon.

    The new Early Childhood Center is also progressing! Exterior brick work has begun along with the roofing. Inside framing has been started along with insulation, ductwork and electrical rough in installations. We look forward to the exterior brick work being completed along with drywall and window installation in the coming weeks. After that, paint! We can’t wait to open this building next school year! #RepMOProud

  • Update 4.9.18

    Posted by Josey McPhail on 4/9/2018

    Despite the cold weather, progress continues to be made on the RHS activity facility!  The concrete pad for the home bleachers has been poured and the bleachers have arrived on site. Installation is underway! An exciting element that was recently added is the installation of the scoreboard, which is nearing completion. The video board and the back logo have been placed on the scoreboard structure. We’re so excited about the interactive abilities this feature will provide. The masonry work is almost complete on the ticket booth and facility entrance. In addition, things are really moving forward with the drywall and painting inside the structures. The project is on time and on budget. We are looking forward to opening this facility this fall! #repmoproud

  • Progress Despite the Cold!

    Posted by Josey McPhail on 1/29/2018

    Despite the cold, winter weather we’ve experienced lately, the RHS activity facility project continues to move forward! Since the last update the roofing crew has installed trusses and began roof decking on the home field house. The masonry crew has almost completed the exterior brick work on the visitor field house and will move to the home field house shortly. Rubber infill is being placed on the turf, which is the last step in the turf installation process! Plumbers and electricians continue interior work on both field houses, and light poles have been constructed and installed. Dirt work is taking place in preparation for the bleachers and press box, and concrete crews are working on the sidewalks and plaza areas. We are excited to see this continued progress!

  • End of Year Update

    Posted by Josey McPhail on 12/18/2017

    Since the last update, the turf crew has almost completed the installation of the turf. The end zone lettering, mid-field logo, numbers, and hash marks are completed. The next steps involve edging work along the track and placing the rubber fill into the playing surface. The visitor field house has insulation and underlayment for the roof and are awaiting the installation of the roof panels. The home field house is nearing completion with interior and the final exterior walls being constructed. The roof company will begin installation on the roof structure of the home field house once all walls are constructed. The main ticket booth has been constructed and the roof has been installed. Masonry crews will begin bricking the visitor field house and then move on to the ticket booths and the home field house. The light poles are being constructed and prepped for installation, and dirt work is being completed in preparation for the bleachers on both the home and visitor sides. The project continues to be on time and on budget!

  • Construction Update 11.7.17

    Posted by Josey McPhail on 11/7/2017

    The construction of the activity facility continues to progress at a wonderful pace. Since the last update, the visitor field house exterior block work has been completed and the metal roof trusses hav​e been installed. Installation of the metal roof panels will be next.


    At the home field house site exterior and interior block walls are being constructed. Also, plumbing for the restrooms and concession area is being installed. Once the plumbing is completed the second half of the slab will be poured.


    The footing for the ticket booths have been roughed in with conduit being pulled to the location. The dirt work for bleachers on both the home and visitor sides has begun as well. The turf crew has completed all the concrete pours for the track and field events and are putting the final touches on the sub base for the turf. The crew has also installed a goal post. The next steps will be to finalize and test the sub base and then proceed with installation of the turf.


    Thank you to our student photography team for these great pictures and drone video footage: https://youtu.be/kaGAwg-711U!

  • Making Progress!

    Posted by Josey McPhail on 10/2/2017

    Thank you to RHS students Tristan Brown and Jared Doty for capturing this footage of the activity facility construction! The perimeter drainage around the field is currently being installed, and play clock footings have been constructed. The old goal posts have been removed as they would have been too short with the new turf going in soon. The foundation has been poured for the visitor side locker rooms and concession stand. In addition, block walls are currently being constructed for the visitor side areas as well. #makingprogress #repmoproud
