Our Next In-Person Learning Transition

Dear Omaha Public Schools Families,

Nearly one year ago, we were all about to face the worldwide disruption of this pandemic, the first of its kind in a century. The last year brought everyone more challenges than, at times, we probably thought we could meet. Far too many people faced loss and financial uncertainty. For you, our families, we know it brought unprecedented changes as students learned from home or in the Family 3/2 Model.

Looking back at our first semester and forward to the rest of this school year, we will soon shift to five days of in-person learning for students who wish to attend. Five days of in-person academic, social and emotional instruction will best help our students move forward. Though routines will look different, we will keep responsible operations at the forefront as a local and national leader in school health and safety. 

Our Phased Transitions from Family 3/2 to Five Days Per Week

Students learning in-person will follow the Family 3/2 calendar until they transition to attending five days per week. Dates for the next in-person learning transition are:

  • Monday, Feb. 1 – No school for elementary and middle school students. Half building-based professional learning and half teacher planning day.

  • Tuesday, Feb. 2 – Elementary and middle schools transition to five days in-person per week.

  • Tuesday, Feb. 16 – No school for high school students. Half building-based professional learning and half teacher planning day.

  • Wednesday, Feb. 17 – High schools transition to five days in-person per week

We’ve linked to an updated calendar, here. The only changes reflect our phased changes to in-person learning five days each week.

Remote Learning Program

The Remote Learning Program will continue to be available for families who feel it is best. 

If you would like to change how your student is learning, whether it is in person or through the Remote Learning Program, please contact your student’s school.

Meals2Go

Meals2Go will continue to be available. On Monday, Feb. 1, Meals2Go will transition to one day each week (Mondays) with five days of meals provided in the drive-through format. 

Additional Information

We will continue to share our weekly Health and Safety Newsletter with the most current information available. Open communication with our families is important to us. 

We care so deeply about our students and look forward to serving them in school each day. We would all like to see community health conditions in a different place. Our commitment to student success calls us to make this change and we can all support a responsible transition by following health guidelines in and out of school.


Yours in Education,

Cheryl J. Logan, Ed.D.
Superintendent


Estimadas familias de las escuelas públicas de Omaha,

Hace casi un año, estábamos a punto de enfrentarnos a la interrupción mundial de esta pandemia, la primera de este tipo en un siglo. El año pasado trajo a todos más desafíos de los que, en ocasiones, pensamos que podríamos enfrentar. Demasiadas personas enfrentaron pérdidas e incertidumbre financiera. Para ustedes, nuestras familias, sabemos que trajo cambios incomparables a medida que los estudiantes aprendieron en casa o en el Modelo Familia 3/2.

Mirando hacia atrás al primer semestre y hacia el resto de este año escolar, pronto cambiaremos a nuestro modelo de instrucción 100% en persona para los estudiantes que deseen asistir en persona cinco días a la semana. Cinco días de enseñanza académica, social y emocional en persona, ayudarán mejor a nuestros estudiantes a avanzar. Aunque las rutinas se verán diferentes, nos mantendremos responsables a la vanguardia como líder local y nacional en salud y seguridad escolar.

Transiciones por etapas del modelo familia 3/2 a cinco días por semana

Los estudiantes que aprenden en persona seguirán el calendario familia 3/2 hasta que empiecen a asistir cinco días a la semana. Las fechas para la próxima transición de aprendizaje en persona son:

  • Lunes 1 de febrereo – No hay clases para estudiantes de primarias y secondarias.

  • Martes 2 de febrero - Transición a cinco días a la semana en persona para las escuelas primarias y secundarias.

  • Martes 16 de febrero – No hay clases para estudiantes de preparatorias.

  • Miercoles 17 de febrero – Transición a cinco días a la semana en persona para las escuelas preparatorias.

Hemos incluido un calendario actualizado aquí. Los únicos cambios que se reflejan son nuestros cambios por etapas al 100% en persona, cinco días a la semana.

Programa de aprendizaje remoto

El Programa de aprendizaje remoto seguirá estando disponible para las familias que lo consideren mejor.

Si desea cambiar la forma en que su estudiante está aprendiendo, ya sea en persona o mediante el Programa de aprendizaje remoto, comuníquese con la escuela de su estudiante.

Comidas para llevar (Meals2Go)

Meals2Go seguirá estando disponible. El lunes 1 de febrero, Meals2Go pasará a un día a la semana (lunes) recogerán cinco días de comidas en el formato de autoservicio.

Información Adicional

Continuaremos compartiendo nuestro boletín semanal de salud y seguridad con la información disponible más actualizada. La comunicación abierta con nuestras familias es importante para nosotros.

Nos preocupamos profundamente por nuestros estudiantes y esperamos poder servirlos en la escuela todos los días. A todos nos gustaría ver las condiciones de salud de la comunidad en un lugar diferente. Nuestro compromiso con el éxito de los estudiantes nos llama a hacer este cambio y todos podemos apoyar una transición responsable siguiendo las normas de salud dentro y fuera de la escuela.

Atentamente, 

Cheryl J. Logan, Ed.D.
Superintendente
