The Republic School District has developed this page to address practices and procedures regarding coronavirus, COVID-19. In addition, resources from the CDC along with state and local health department are listed below. This page will also serve as a resource for event impacts regarding COVID-19.
Health Protocols (SRCSP)
Keeping students and employees safe and healthy while at school is our utmost priority! As we’ve navigated through this pandemic we have learned best practices and have made some adjustments that began May 27 based on these and due to the fact positive cases are continuing to diminish. CLICK HERE to review the updated protocols. This also serves as the district's SRCSP plan required by DESE. The biggest change will be that masks are no longer a requirement, they are optional. Per the Springfield Greene County Health Department this also means that traditional quarantine will be reimplemented and modified quarantine will not be an option.
We feel very optimistic that positive cases will remain low. However, it is important to note that in the situation that cases begin to rise again it is possible that we will need to reimplement some of our previous protocols, including required masking. We will continue to monitor the situation and consult with the Springfield Greene County Health Department.
COVID-19 Communication Efforts
The below graph identifies the number of positive student and employee COVID19 cases by week in the Republic School District. This information will be updated on Monday of each week.
During the 2020-21 school year daily "exposure notifications" were distributed when a positive COVID19 case was reported to the school district. These notifications can be found HERE.
Due to the number of diminishing positive COVID19 cases, the district will be changing the way in which these positive cases are reported. Instead of nightly email notifications, we will update this website every Monday with the number of cases we have received.
In addition, should a student or employee be a direct contact to a positive case while at school (within 6 feet for at least 15 minutes) they will be notified by the Springfield Greene County Health Department regarding quarantine instructions. In this case, guardians of quarantined or positive students should contact the school to report the student will not be at school. The school will then coordinate remote school work with the family. Quarantined or positive employees will need to coordinate with supervisors.
