Update 10-28-20: NEW GUIDELINE SURROUNDING RED ON THE COMMUNITY RISK DIAL

Students, Staff, and the district will operate in the orange category guidelines if the community risk dial moves to red.  If NPPS, WCDHD, and NDE determine that in-person learning is not safe due to the spread of the coronavirus, classrooms, schools, and/or the district will close and resort to remote learning as a safe alternative.  More detailed information will be provided if we resort to remote learning.

  1. If the Community Risk Dial moves to 'red' North Platte Public Schools may not resort to Remote Learning as outlined in the information below.

  2. If the Community Risk Dial elevates into the 'red' zone, NPPS will continue to work with the West Central District Health Department (WCDHD) and the Nebraska Department of Education (NDE) to implement plans and protocols for continued in-person learning.

  3. Along with using the Community Risk Factors, NPPS will continue to use District Internal Factors, including the number of students and staff who are either quarantined or isolated weekly to make an informed decision.

  4. We will follow WCDHD and NDE recommendations to provide in-person learning while controlling and reducing the spread of COVID-19.

  5. NPPS will continue to collaborate with the WCDHD and NDE to evaluate and adjust our plans according to our community and schools' needs.

  6. Our primary objectives are to keep students and staff safe and school operating in-person learning.  We know that the best place to provide educational, social, and emotional support to our students is in the school buildings.
