RepMO Return to Learn Phase 1

  • Masks/face coverings are required for middle 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!
