SPRINGFIELD, Mo.– Ozarks First has obtained an official copy of Springfield Public Schools’ back-to-school plan.



All students pre-kindergarten through 12 grade will be required to wear a mask, even when riding the bus.


SPS, the largest school district in the state of Missouri, says students will have two options when returning to classes:

  • In-person attendance
  • Virtual learning

“By offering In-Person and Virtual Learning options, we are providing families a choice that allows them to access high-quality instruction provided by SPS teachers in formats which will best meet the specific needs of each student,” the re-entry plan guide says.

According to the SPS document, even the in-person class option will only place children in a physical classroom two days out of the week. The other three will be spent in a virtual learning environment.
