Optional Return to In Person Learning

In accordance with Commissioner Riley's decision, all students grade 9-12 will have the OPTION to return to school buildings beginning Monday, May 17. Students may still opt to remain fully remote for the remainder of the school year.

Because Springfield is still designated as a COVID Red Zone, the following protocols will be in place: 

BEFORE RETURNING TO SCHOOL:
ENTERING THE BUILDING:
  • All students, staff, and visitors are required to wear a mask in the building at all times.
  • In-Person Students will be admitted to the building at 7:20.
  • Each grade will use a separate entrance.
    • Grade 9 - Flag Pole Entrance
    • Grade 10 - Main Office/ Security Desk Entrance
    • Grade 11 - Theater Entrance 
    • Grade 12 - Rm 124 Entrance (Closest to Roosevelt on Parking Lot side of building)
  • Students follow signs/ directions from administrators to go to their homerooms. 
    • Students should check PowerSchool for their homeroom assignments.
    • Some rooms have been condensed, so their room numbers may have changed
  • Students will not have access to lockers and will need to keep all belongings with them for the whole day.
  • School uniforms are encouraged but not mandatory.
