From the Athletic DirectorAthletics can be a valuable component of a student's educational experience. Through the promotion of self discipline, dedication, sportsmanship, teamwork, accountability, and commitment to achievement, athletics fosters many of the qualities and educational values we endorse as a district. Athletic competition is a forum through which students may push themselves and their limitations, allowing them to develop self confidence and enhance their self esteem.

Fall Athletics & Activities Guidelines for Parents/StudentsThe graphic below indicates all guidelines for our students participating in athletics and activities this fall along with all spectators who attend school events. Here are a few highlights for our spectators:
- Masks/face coverings are REQUIRED for those in 4th grade and older and HIGHLY recommended for those younger when social distancing is not possible. Specifically, please make sure you wear your "mask on the move" as you find your seat at events, visit the concession stand, etc.
- Republic School District will utilize the facility capacity guidelines set by the Springfield-Greene County Health Department to determine the number of spectators allowed to attend athletic/activity events.
- Through October 2020 this will mean that events held in Republic will not exceed 50% capacity. Based on historical attendance data, we do not feel maxing our capacity will be an issue. However, capacity will be filled on a first come first serve basis.
- Take note that as students travel and compete across the region, the spectator capacity will vary by facility/community.
Every Monday RMS and RHS will post a list of events for the week on their websites and social media pages. This list will include any facility capacity restrictions.
Republic High School Event and Stadium Expectations
Thank you in advance for your help in following the below expectations for Republic High School events. If we work together to adhere to these rules, we can ensure a safe and enjoyable environment for all event attendees.
**If children are not at the concession stands, restrooms, or canopy/vendor area, they need to be seated in the bleachers. Playing, socializing, and running in open areas of the high school or stadium will not be permitted.
**All RMS and RHS students will be expected to sit in the stand with a parent/guardian OR in the designated sections. At the stadium, RHS students will sit in the middle lower section of the bleachers and RMS students will sit in the north lower section of the bleachers.
**At the stadium, adults are welcome to stand next to the railing in the plaza areas on each side of the home bleachers; however, we ask that no one stand along the north end zone fence.
**During football and soccer games, members of the general public are not allowed on the track.
**No tobacco, outside food/drink, pets, large bags, or student re-entry is permitted for all RMS and RHS athletic events.
Change in MSHSAA Physical Exam RequirementMSHSAA recently changed their requirement for student physicals required for activity/athletic participation. In the past those were to be completed annually. However, effective immediately, physicals are now valid for 2 years (730 days) from the date of issue. Therefore, physicals from this current school year will still be valid for the 2020-2021 school year.
Take note, medical history, student agreement, parent consent, proof of insurance, concussion education and emergency contact sections of the Pre-Participation Evaluation will still need to be updated and completed by parent and students annually, prior to participation.
