Second Semester Phased Return In-Person

Phased Return In-Person After Winter Break

From our layers of precautions to the pioneering OPS PROTECTS testing program, Omaha Public Schools makes each decision with health and safety at the forefront.

With that in mind, Omaha Public Schools will begin the second semester of this school year with a phased return in-person. Staff will teach from their classroom and students will start the semester as scheduled on Tuesday, Jan. 5 using their district-provided device from home. 

Here are the dates for that phased return in-person:

  • Tuesday, Jan. 5, 2021: All students begin with remote instruction following the normal bell schedule. JP Lord School returns in-person five days a week.

  • Monday, Jan. 11, 2021: K-12 ACP, Transition, Elementary BSP, Early Childhood Special Education, Homebased/Homebound, and Hearing Impaired classrooms return in-person five days a week.

  • Tuesday, Jan. 19, 2021: All students return in-person following the Family 3/2 Model attendance calendar. Gateway to College, OPS/UNO Middle College Program, Parrish, Student Success Program and the Zoo Academy return in person five days a week.

In-person instruction will continue with the Family 3/2 Model in the weeks that follow Jan. 19. At this time, there are no district-wide changes to our instructional model between now and winter break.

We know students learn best in-person. We are also working closely with public health leaders and medical experts for the health, safety and well-being of everyone in our school communities. This phased return in-person at the start of second semester will limit traffic on-site and allow students and families to return to their routine following an extended winter break.

Of course, health conditions have and continue to evolve rapidly. If adjustments are needed, we will update staff and families directly, with as much advance notice as possible.

The Remote Learning Program will remain an option for students who wish to continue learning full-time from home during the second semester.

Please look for additional information to come.


Regreso en persona después de las vacaciones de invierno

Desde nuestras precauciones hasta el programa de pruebas OPS PROTECTS, las Escuelas Públicas de Omaha toman cada decisión con la salud y la seguridad en primer plano.

Con eso en mente, las Escuelas Públicas de Omaha comenzarán el segundo semestre de este año escolar con un regreso gradual en persona. El personal enseñará desde su salón de clases, y los estudiantes comenzarán el semestre según lo programado el martes 5 de enero desde casa, usando el dispositivo provisto por el distrito.

Estas son las fechas para el regreso en persona en etapas:

  • Martes, 5 de enero de 2021: Todos los demás estudiantes comienzan con instrucción remota siguiendo el horario normal de clases. JP Lord School regresa en persona, cinco dias cada semana.

  • Lunes, 11 de enero de 2021: K-12 ACP, Transición, elementaria BSP, Educación Especial para la temprana edad, basado en casa, y estudiantes con problemas de audición regresan en persona cinco dias cada semana.

  • Martes, 19 de enero de 2021: Todos los estudiantes regresan en persona siguiendo el calendario de asistencia modelo Famila 3/2. Gateway to College, OPS/UNO Middle College Program, Parrish, Student Success Program y el Zoo Academy regresan en persona cinco dias cada semana.

La instrucción en persona continuará con el modelo familia 3/2 en las semanas siguientes al 19 de enero. En este momento, no hay cambios en todo el distrito a nuestro modelo de instrucción entre ahora y las vacaciones de invierno.

Sabemos que los estudiantes aprenden mejor en persona. También estamos trabajando en estrecha colaboración con líderes de salud pública y expertos médicos para la salud, la seguridad y el bienestar de todos en nuestra comunidad escolar. Este regreso gradual en persona al comienzo del segundo semestre limitará la congregación de personas en el sitio y permitirá que los estudiantes y las familias regresen a su rutina después de un receso de invierno prolongado.

Por supuesto, las condiciones de salud han evolucionado y continúan evolucionando rápidamente. Si se necesitan ajustes, actualizaremos al personal y las familias directamente, con la mayor anticipación posible.

El programa de aprendizaje remoto seguirá siendo una opción para los estudiantes que deseen continuar aprendiendo desde casa a tiempo completo durante el segundo semestre.

Por favor busque información adicional próximamente.
