Flu season is here, and we have a few tips to keep your healthy. There is still time to get a flu shot to protect yourself and others from the flu. If you are not able to afford a flu shot (under insured or no health insurance), Midlands Hospital has the Vaccines for Children program and will give the shot for free. Students should stay home when they are ill. We do not allow students with a fever to return to school until they are fever free for 24 hours without the use of medication to keep the fever down.
- Please wash your hands often - especially after coughing or blowing your nose!
- Dispose of any tissue used and wash your hand.
- Clean hard surfaces in your home frequently.
- Stay away from others who are ill.
Thank you for helping keep our students healthy this flu season.

We will be meeting on Wednesday, November 20. Please have your students wear their colorful house shirts that we gave to them on the day of the Walk-a-Thon. Let’s show everyone how we can prove what great leaders we can be by rocking our shirts!
Our Making Spirits Bright parade is on Monday, November 25. For anyone who wants to participate, please register at SignUpGenius. The event begins with a soup supper. Tree lighting and caroling will follow the parade.
If you are in need of holiday assistance, or if your child is in need of a winter coat this year, please contact Mrs. Ingram or Mrs. Heneger.
Mark your calendars for Thursday, November 21 for our family fun night at Runza. Invite your friends and family to dine-in or drive-thru our Springfield Runza between 5:00 and 7:00 p.m. A portion of the funds will go to Springfield PTO. This is a great way to support our community along with Springfield Elementary!
We would like to thank the many parent volunteers for taking time out of their day to make our fall festival parade and parties a great success. A big thank you goes to the town merchants who participate in this event and make it a very special day for the students. Thanks for caring and making our town a great place to be a Springfield patron. The children look forward to this activity all year.
Google recently announced that they are giving Springfield Platteview Community Schools a $100,000 grant to support continued growth and development of computer science and STEM programs. Mr. Brett Richards made the official announcement at the groundbreaking event. We are beyond thankful for this exciting new partnership!
If you have not already done so, we are asking that you complete the online student verification system to update student records as soon as possible. We require all families with students in grades K–12 to update student information in ParentWeb for every child. The ParentWeb account will work for all of your children throughout the district and will ensure that our schools have the most current student information. Parents may update information such as a new address, phone numbers, health information, or emergency contacts at any time throughout the school year. If you have not done so, please log in and submit your information. We will limit students’ iPad use and they will not be able to go on field trips until the verification is complete. If you have any questions, please feel free to call the school at (402) 253.2245. Thank you for your help in getting this done as soon as possible!
