A friendly reminder regarding the criteria for outdoor recess.   We have had several students starting to wear shorts, if it is too cold outside for them and they do not have additional pants to wear over their shorts they will be keep inside for recess.
You are strongly encouraged to send your child to school with a hat, gloves and a heavy coat during the cold weather as we will go out if temperature (including wind chill) is 25 degrees and higher (based on ~ area code 45066).  It is our intent to go outside whenever possible.

We have quite a collection of items in our lost and found.  Please either have your child check for a missing item(s) or feel free to stop by and take a look yourself.  What items that are not claimed as of Spring Break will be donated to a local charity.


Attention 5th Grade Parents:  The Springboro Intermediate Web Page contains important information that will assist you and your 5th grader in
making a smooth transition to 6th grade.  Please refer to the SI website for "5th to 6th Grade Transition" and "Placement Information for
Advanced and Enrichment classes - 5th to 6th Grade Transition."  If you have any questions about either of these documents, please contact
