AMI

Each student has been assigned a district Chromebook to use both at school and at home, if needed. As we approach the winter weather season, starting Tuesday, November 1, elementary students will begin taking these devices to and from school each day in the case of inclement weather.


While our district will still plan to utilize “snow days” in the event of winter storms, there is a limit to how many we are allowed by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. In an effort to prevent our students and staff from having to make up missed days at the end of the school year, students taking devices home daily allows the district to be able to quickly implement an AMI Day (virtual learning), if needed. This will continue for elementary students through the month of March.


Elementary students should not have a need to utilize their school devices outside of school hours. Therefore, it's recommended they stay in backpacks at home when not needed for learning or when not charging. We ask that families send their students to school every day with their fully-charged Chromebook and charger.


If an AMI day needs to be implemented, directions from teachers will be shared with our families and students, which will ensure a smooth day of virtual learning.

Survey

Republic School District invites parents and guardians of our students to complete the short, 5 minute survey found at https://forms.gle/du45h9BSAKeQaf5CA by November 9. Your feedback allows us to see at what level we are meeting the needs of our students, families and community at large. Please complete one survey per student in your household.


Throughout November we’ll also be gathering feedback from our 4th-12th grade students and employees. Preparing each student for future excellence through a safe educational environment is our mission, and the information gathered through these surveys provides us a measure to see how well we are achieving this goal. Thank you in advance for your participation!
