    Reports about COVID-19 (coronavirus) in the United States have understandably prompted questions about how it may impact our community and Springfield Public Schools.

What SPS is Doing

  • On March 24, Greene County and the City of Springfield issued a stay-at-home order for the next 30 days, effective at 12:01 a.m. March 26. This order will impact the scheduled closure of school buildings. Details about how this will impact SPS students and employees will be provided on March 25. In the meantime, the following services will continue:

    • Learning for students will resume on March 30 using a new online learning platform, called "SPS at Home." Parents will receive more information about this resource by email soon. While there is no substitute for the face-to-face instruction provided by our dedicated teachers, we hope "SPS at Home" will offer students some continuity of learning and help promote a sense of normalcy and routine. 

    • Grab and Go Meals will be available at all SPS schools during the COVID-19 crisis. Any child under the age of 18, with or without an adult, may receive breakfast and lunch between 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.  USDA Non-Discrimination Statement.

    • To support our community response to this health crisis, some schools are designated to provide child care for the children of healthcare and emergency response workers. These services are offered from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday.
