8th Grade Recognition Ceremony Information
Each year, we host a Recognition Ceremony for the 8th grade students and families in the Springfield High School auditorium. The Recognition Ceremony is scheduled for Thursday, June 14th at 7:00 PM. Each family will receive 3 tickets (wristbands) to the ceremony due to the limited seating. In addition, we offered a limited number of additional tickets, but these tickets are already gone. In the chance that a family turns in their tickets, please use the link below to sign up on a waiting list.
Some of the Spring Sport Coaches use google classroom to give updates and messages to their players. As a parent/guardian you can also check google classroom to see if there are any messages from your child's coach. You will need a code to login. Below are codes for those teams that will be using google classroom for messages to their players:
- Boys' Lacrosse - Code is ex532oi
- Girls' Track - Code is 43am50
- Boys' Track - Code is prfeouq

Information about Security Clearances for Volunteers
If you handed in your Security Clearances last year to any of our schools in the Springfield School District, we would have this information in our system and it is good for five years. There is no need for you to give us another copy.
If you have any questions about this information that is needed you can click below to go directly to our SSD Website: SSDCougars.org > Parents > Security Clearances
Three clearances are needed to be a chaperone or volunteer:
- Affidavit if you lived in PA more than 10 years. The affidavit takes the place of getting your fingerprinting clearance. PA has waived the cost to do your fingerprinting if you lived in PA for more than 10 years.
