From the Principal
Springfield School serves approximately 400 pre-kindergarten through sixth grade students. Our school community focuses on providing a safe and nurturing environment that encourages life-long learning while providing a challenging education. Students are guided to develop positive social skills to encourage their growth as productive and responsible citizens. The teachers at Springfield are dedicated professionals who work hard to ensure a positive and supportive environment for every student. We strive to develop a partnership with our families to ensure the best education for our students.
As we head into the colder months, student absences increase. Please remember to use the 24-hour attendance line (708-388-4121) to call in an absence for your children. If your phone number or emergency contacts have changed since registration, send a note to the school office so we can update you records, helping us to better serve your needs. If your phone number is not accurate, you will not receive the automatic school closing calls in the case of extreme weather conditions.
