Since June 1, Lincoln Public Schools has met multiple times per week and will continue to meet with the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department to develop a comprehensive plan that addresses what school will look like based on the four color risk categories. 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.
“We will serve 100 percent of our students when we start classes in August,” said superintendent Steve Joel. “This could include students and staff in our buildings while we are in the green risk category, or some students utilizing remote learning or rotating schedules in the yellow and orange risk categories, or 100% remote learning in the red category. Our staff is working countless hours to plan for every possibility, question and concern so we are ready for the school year.”
The details of the 2020-21 Plan will be shared on multiple platforms at the following times Tuesday, July 21:
Joel added, “We are learning new information daily – and this makes it hard to predict where we will be on the risk dial come August 12. LPS believes in providing our community with as much information as we can so families can make the choice that is right for them when school starts. We look forward to sharing our details of these plans with you on Tuesday, July 21.”
