The student newspaper of Springfield High School is a public forum, with its student editorial board making all decisions concerning its contents.
Letters to the editor are welcomed and will be published as space allows. Letters must be signed, although the staff may withhold the name on request. The paper reserves the right to edit letters for grammar and clarity, and all letters are subject to laws governing obscenity, libel, privacy and disruption of the school process, as are all contents of the paper. Letters that exhibit a blatant disregard for such standards will not be considered for publication. Opinions in letters are not necessarily those of the staff, nor should any opinion expressed in a public forum be construed as the opinion or policy of the administration, unless so attributed. Signed editorials and columns reflect the opinion of the writer and not the Sprag, advisers or school.
In the event of an error, The Sprag will print retractions as they are brought to the attention of the staff.
