Springfield Local Schools will be closed tomorrow, Monday, March 16th and remain closed through April 3,2020. A substitute teacher who was in the intermediate and high school last week had contact with someone who has now tested positive for the coronavirus. Superintendent Yazvac spoke with the Health Commissioner and after his investigation, he was assured that from the timing of our substitute having contact with this individual, there was no risk to our substitute or to any of our students and staff. After receiving this good news, it was still recommended to close tomorrow just to alleviate peoples concerns regarding this virus. Blended learning will begin as scheduled on Monday, March 23rd through April 3rd. We will implement paper and pencil packets for our younger students and online digital instruction for our older students. Thank you all for your understanding and support during this difficult time.
