Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year.  I hope that everyone enjoyed a relaxing summer.  We are excited to get the students started on another fantastic year at Springfield School.

The first day of school for K-6th grade is Wednesday, August 26.  This day is a full day for student attendance, 8:20-2:45.  The breakfast and lunch programs will also begin the first day.  The first day for prekindergarten students is Thursday, August 27.

We would like to invite all of our students and their families for Back to School Night on Tuesday, September 1 from 6:00-7:00PM.
