Teacher Appreciation Week - May 2-6

Please help the fabulous Springfield Family and Friends by providing treats for the amazing Springfield Staff next week.

You can sign up here!

Notes from the Nurse:

-5th grade parents: Ms. Tarnow will be sending home a letter with some 5th grade students about immunizations needed before 6th grade. If your student doesn't receive the letter, it means they already received those immunizations. The required immunizations are the Tdap and Meningococcal vaccines. Please send in the updated record to the nurse after they're received.

-If your student has medication in the Nurse's Office, Ms. Tarnow will be sending a "Medication Return Authorization" letter home soon asking you what to do with that medicine on the final day of school. Please mark your response, sign and return to the nurse as soon as possible. Please note that if this form is not completed, signed and returned, the medication will be discarded.


Congratulations to our students and staff! We had a very successful two weeks of ILEARN and have a few make-ups to do this coming week.

Thank you, parents and families, for making sure that students were here and ready to go for testing!
