The Lincoln Public Schools plan for the 2020-21 school year was released to the public on June 16. A draft of the details for how schools will operate under that plan within the four risk color categories will be shared with the community on Tuesday, July 21.
At Lincoln Public Schools, we want to assure families that we are taking all the essential precautions and we have protocols in place to respond to any outbreak of communicable diseases within our schools. We have been working closely with the Lincoln/Lancaster County Health Department as they monitor the situation and we will follow their instructions.
Students have an opportunity to get their items left at school last year and return school items. An email from your principal will give you an exact schedule for the times you can come to your school. This is for students who were in grades kindergarten-4, 6-7, and 9-11 last school year.
Lincoln Public Schools announced an update Tuesday about in-person graduation ceremonies for all six high schools July 24, 25 and 26, at Pinnacle Bank Arena. The plans are tentative and will be based on the health directives in place by local health officials during that weekend.
We are planning to have 100 percent of students return to classes in our buildings starting August 12. LPS will conduct classes and operate within the framework of the four risk color statuses of the COVID-19 Risk Dial as designated by LLCHD and the City of Lincoln.
