  • Dear Maple families, 

    We are reaching out today with some information about the end of the school year.

    In an effort to provide students with as much instruction time as possible, Springfield Public Schools is implementing a slight change to the final week of the school year.

    • The last day of school for all students will be Thursday, June 17
    • All students will attend school on Wednesday, June 16 (typically a remote learning day).
    • Any students attending two days a week will attend Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday during that week.
    • Thursday, June 17, will be an early release day for elementary students and a full day of school for secondary students (middle and high school students will be dismissed at their regular times). Elementary students will be released at 12:10.

     With current schedules in place, this change will allow for students to receive the most amount of instruction for their final week of school. The adjustment will also provide the least disruptive change to school schedules for all SPS staff and students.

     If you have additional questions, please reach out for more information by calling us at 541-744-6395.

    Thank you for your continued understanding in a year that has required flexibility from us all.

    Sincerely,

    Dave Hulbert, Principal

     

    Estimadas familias de Maple,

    Nos comunicamos hoy con información sobre el final del año escolar.

     En un esfuerzo por brindar a los estudiantes la mayor cantidad de tiempo de instrucción posible, las Escuelas Públicas de Springfield están implementando un ligero cambio en la última semana del año escolar.

    El último día de clases para todos los estudiantes será el jueves 17 de junio.

     Todos los estudiantes asistirán a la escuela el miércoles 16 de junio (normalmente un día de aprendizaje a distancia).

    Cualquier estudiante que asista dos días a la semana asistirá los lunes / miércoles o martes / jueves durante esa semana.

     El jueves 17 de junio será un día de salida temprana para los estudiantes de primaria y un día completo de escuela para los estudiantes de secundaria (los estudiantes de secundaria y preparatoria saldrán

    en sus horarios regulares). Los estudiantes de primaria saldrán a las 12:10.

    Con los horarios vigentes, este cambio permitirá que los estudiantes reciban la mayor cantidad de instrucción durante su última semana de clases. El ajuste también proporcionará el cambio menos perturbador en los horarios escolares para todo el personal y los estudiantes de SPS.

     Sí tiene más preguntas, comuníquese con nosotros para obtener información al 541-744-6395.

    Gracias por su comprensión continua en un año que ha requerido flexibilidad de todos nosotros.

     Atentamente,

    Dave Hulbert, Director

    Dear Maple Parents and Families,

     

    We miss you and hope you are all safe and well!  Our staff is excited to reconnect with their students on Monday, April 13.

     

    We are working quickly to meet the needs of our Springfield School Community.  The district has sent out communication and worked with families to gain technology for our distance learning.  Below is some important information.

     

    MEALS – Maple continues to serve FREE breakfast/ hot lunch daily to Springfield children ages 1-18.  Students pick up two bags with two milks each visit.  One is a hot lunch, the other is breakfast for the following day.  We also continue to have our Panera bread and Costco donations on Monday and Tuesday.  Our wonderful Mary and Martha enjoy seeing students.  It makes them feel good to feed them!

     

    STUDENT ITEM PICK UP – Student items are bagged and ready for pick up.  Many of you picked up on Thursday and Friday.  We have additional pick up times on Monday and Tuesday from 3:00 – 6:00 pm in the staff parking lot on 23rd and G street.

     

    DISTANCE LEARNING - We are working to keep kids and families connected to the school community and to learning. Our goal is to stay connected, engage in reading and math lessons, and enjoy a few other activities. We are trying to keep kids exercising and staying healthy. Click on this schedule to learn the times for your grade level virtual meeting and class times. We are NOT attempting to replace ‘regular school’ and turn parents/guardians into teachers! We are NOT expecting students to sit in front of a computer from 8:35 - 2:50!

     

    TECHNOLOGY - If you still need to check out a district  technology device, click here.  Due to the large number of devices needed throughout our SPS system of 10,500 students, here are the parameters for devices:  

      • high school students each get individual devices; 
      • 2nd - 8th grade get one device for every two kids in the household; 
      • KG-1st grade get one iPad for each child.  

    The district continues to work with internet providers to open up hot spots and make the internet available to our students.  The Family Technology Support line phone number is 541-726-3406.

    There are many resources at https://www.springfield.k12.or.us/SPSLearns to  help support distance learning in your home.

     

    Thank you for your patience as we engage in distance learning.  Our families are important to us and we miss our students.  If your family has needs please reach out to askSPS@springfield.k12.or.us and let us know how we can help.  We recognize there are lots of challenges.  Please communicate with teachers about your needs and we will do our best to help. We can figure this out together!

     

    Please feel free to email me with any questions at linda.oshea@springfield.k12.or.us

     

    Sincerely,

     

    Linda O’Shea

    Principal

Principal Corner

  • Field Day volunteers

    Posted by Dave Hulbert on 5/23/2022 1:30:00 PM

    Greetings Maple families,

    The end of the year has many special festivities.  One of those special traditions is field day.  On field day (June 16), the school goes outside and kids rotate through different games and activities.  The district has approved for parent volunteers however, parent spectators are not an option at field day.  If you are interested, I would like to invite you to participate as a volunteer during field day. 

    Springfield Public Schools are required to do a background check  (Policy-GDDA-AR/ORS 326.607) and proof of vaccination for all volunteers in the schools.  We know that some volunteers do not have a driver’s license or a SSN number so they are not required for the process.  Potential volunteers will just need to fill out their legal name and birthdate.   In place of the SSN you can just use all 5’s. (Example: 555-55-5555)

    In addition, Raptor Technologies (the system that completes our background checks)  has stated that they do not send any information to any government agencies on the information that they receive as part of this process.  Springfield schools are trying to meet all state requirements and board policies while also trying to give enough flexibility with identification to be as inclusive as possible. 

    The background check process takes a little time. If you are interested in volunteering for field day on the morning of June 16, please do the following:
    1. Click on this link for the background check:  https://apps.raptortech.com/Apply/MzU2ODplbi1VUw==

    2. Call the Maple office (541-744-6395) to let them know you would like to volunteer.

    We will be in touch to confirm details.

    Sincerely,

    Dave Hulbert, Principal

    Saludos familias de Maple,

    El fin de año tiene muchas festividades especiales. Una de esas tradiciones especiales es El Día de Campo. En El Día de Campo (16 de Junio), la escuela sale y los niños rotan a través de diferentes juegos y actividades. El distrito ha aprobado padres voluntarios, sin embargo, los padres espectadores no son una opción en el día de campo.
    Si está interesado, me gustaría invitarlo a participar como voluntario durante el día de campo.

    Las Escuelas Públicas de Springfield deben realizar una verificación de antecedentes (Política-GDDA-AR/ORS 326.607) y prueba de vacunación para todos los voluntarios en las escuelas. Sabemos que algunos voluntarios no tienen licencia de conducir o número de SSN, por lo que, no son necesarios para el proceso. Los posibles voluntarios solo tendrán que completar su nombre legal y fecha de nacimiento. En lugar del SSN, puede poner 5s. (Ejemplo: 555-55-5555)

    Además, Raptor Technologies (el sistema que completa nuestras verificaciones de antecedentes) ha declarado que no envían ninguna información a ninguna agencia del gobierno sobre la información que reciben como parte de este proceso. Las escuelas de Springfield están tratando de cumplir con todos los requisitos estatales y las políticas de la junta al mismo tiempo que intentan tener suficiente flexibilidad con la identificación para ser lo más inclusivos posible.

    El proceso de verificación de antecedentes toma un poco de tiempo. Si está interesado en ser voluntario para el día de campo en la mañana de 16 de junio, por favor:

    1. Haga clic en este enlace para empezar el proceso de verificación de antecedentes: https://apps.raptortech.com/Apply/MzU2ODplcy1VUw==

    2. Envíese un correo electrónico a Joni Wareham (joni.wareham@springfield.k12.or.us) para hacernos saber que te gustaría ser voluntario.

    Nos pondremos en contacto para confirmar los detalles.

    Sinceramente,

    Dave Hulbert, Director
