Responsible Reopening Update for February 12, 2021

Responsible Reopening

February 12, 2021

Dear Wildcat Families,

Nearly 80% of SCSD employees signed up to receive the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine on February 10 or 13. I am pleased by the outstanding efforts of our educators, staff and administrators for the patience and perseverance shown since March of last year. I cannot express sufficient gratitude for our team, as they have truly gone above and beyond to support our students and families.

The second dose of the vaccine will be administered to SCSD employees on Saturday, March 13. Due to the potential side effects associated with the second dose of the vaccine, all Springfield City School District buildings will be closed on Monday, March 15. This scheduled closure will not be a virtual day, rather a day for our team to take care of themselves and rest if needed. Classes will resume Tuesday, March 16. 

Thank you to all of our Wildcat families for the ongoing encouragement and countless hours of your time to support the children in the SCSD. We will all look back on these times with many stories to tell. But first, we must provide a strong finish to the 2020-21 school year.

Go Cats!

Sincerely,

Robert F. Hill, Ed.D.
