Virtual Open House
August 19th
Greetings RHS Families!
We are excited to welcome you to Republic High School for the upcoming 2020-21 school year! Open house will be conducted in a virtual format this year.
Your student's teachers will be sending information out to your emails tomorrow before 4:00 pm with information about their classes and teachers!
Additionally, we are including some general information in the following link to welcome you and your student to RHS.

RepMO Return to Learn Phase 1

As we begin the school year we would like to remind families that the district has implemented RepMO Return to Learn, a series of health related protocols involving 3 phases. We will start the school year in Phase 1. A summary of Phase 1 is included in the graphic below . CLICK HERE for the district's Return to Learn Handbook which provides more details.

Masking Information

  • Masks/face coverings are required for High School students and staff.
  • ALL students riding the bus must wear a mask/face covering.

PHASE 2 ALPHABET CUTS: Per the graphic below, alphabet cuts have been determined for phase 2, should it need to be implemented. This is for student last names, and siblings would be grouped together regardless of differing last names. More on phase 2 can be found in the RepMO Return to Learn Phases Handbook.
Daily Wellness Check
Each day we are asking families to do a wellness check of all students before they come to school. Employees will be doing this as well. Following these guidelines will help everyone stay healthy! 

It is vital to student success that all RHS families have updated contact information. You may contact the RHS office at any time to update your information or use parent portal to do so. Be reminded that communication with building teachers and administrators is always available and important. Below you will find many of the communication tools you may access:
