Sweeny's office hours are from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.
Please ensure that you have a car line sign. If you do not have a car line sign we will ask that you pull around to the office, show identification and obtain a car line sign. Remember, please do not arrive in the car line until 3:15 p.m. The city police are very concerned about the amount of traffic backing up into Main Street. If there were a need to get emergency vehicles through that congested traffic it would be very difficult.
Monday through Thursday: Due to end of the day procedures, there will be no transportation changes after 3:00 p.m. and no student check outs after 3:15 p.m. **Friday: There will be no transportation changes after 2:00 p.m. and no student check outs after 2:15 p.m. Please call the office if you have any questions. Thank you for your understanding.
Our monthly virtual assembly will be from 9:55 a.m. to 10:35 a.m.
Due to the district's school improvement day there will be no school for students.
Republic School District is excited to announce that our school based health clinic partnership with Jordan Valley Health Centers will kick-off on October 1!
One Jordan Valley community health worker will be available to work with our school nurses to coordinate a virtual visit with a Jordan Valley doctor or nurse practitioner for any student or employee that is sick and needs to be seen by a practitioner for the following illnesses: strep throat, ear infection, sinus infection, rash, pink eye, stomach flu, bug bites, lice and congestion. After being seen by a provider the student/employee will be able to return to class/work OR they will be given a diagnosis and will be ready to go home. If necessary, the practitioner will call in a prescription to the patient's pharmacy for them to pay for and pick-up.
This partnership is made possible primarily by funds provided by Jordan Valley Health Centers. Beyond office space for the onsite community health worker, this program has no other financial obligations for the district. Parents and employees will never receive a bill for care. If the patient has insurance, that insurance will receive the bill. If the patient does not have insurance, Jordan Valley Health Centers covers the cost of the visit and patients only have to pay for prescriptions, when needed.
This service will be optional, but available to all students and employees. Paper registration forms will be coming home with students September 13 and will need to be completed and returned to school before they can be seen by the practitioner beginning October 1. You can also print a form and return it to school at shorturl.at/juOSV. We're excited and thankful for this opportunity to partner with Jordan Valley Health Centers!
Each spring students across the district participate in state assessments (MAP and EOC). We have been notified by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) that Individual Student Reports (ISR) are available. The schedule for distribution of ISRs for students who participated in state assessments last spring is as follows:
Information for how to interpret your child's results will be included with the ISR. If you have any questions or would like to see your child's report prior to the distribution times, please contact your child's school counselor or Dr. Jennifer Renegar, District Test Coordinator at 732-3605, ext 6014 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Republic School District has developed health-related protocols which were created in conjunction with the Springfield-Greene County Health Department in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The protocols are based on best practices from schools and businesses around the globe and recommendations from DESE and health professionals. The updated protocols were implemented August 31. CLICK HERE to review the full Return to Learn handbook that outlines these protocols. Specifically, masking will be recommended, but not required inside our buildings. However, due to a Federal mandate, masks are required on buses. The Return to Learn Handbook also serves as the district's SRCSP plan as required by DESE.
