How to make a mask guide


From Mayor Paul Lambert

This is Plattsmouth. We have encountered challenges before. Through floods, fires, windstorms, and blizzards—some in the same year, the citizens of Plattsmouth have overcome obstacles. We have always come out of the event stronger than before. We will do the same with this pandemic. Working together, we will come out stronger than if we try to do it alone. Each one of us can work to the collective good which will make recovery shorter and better.

I encourage all Plattsmouth citizens to follow the health orders issued by Governor Ricketts, the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services, and Sarpy/Cass Health Department. Doing so will shorten the time and our pain. If sick or exhibiting symptoms, stay home. Take social distancing seriously. Do not congregate with others. Check on your elderly neighbors. Assist them as you can while maintaining appropriate social-distancing.

To the extent we can, buy local. Support our local business community. They always have been and will continue being committed to Plattsmouth. Their businesses are hurting as we all are. They are our family.

Your family. Your friends. Your neighbors and our community are counting on you. We are in this together. Help Plattsmouth be strong!

Paul Lambert, Mayor

-----------------------------  - Simple Numbers:


1 in 5 Nebraska people that receive their Corona Virus Check next week is fortunate enough to not have any real pressing need.

Many of these people want and would help small businesses, but there is no obvious (and non-offensive) to invest and support.

There is a better than 3 times benefit to the Community, for every dollar invested in the Survival of the Small Business Community.

Small Business Owners, with shuttered Doors need cash now - to retain critical employees, pay rent and cling to their customers.

With that in Mind: We Launched We need all Small Cass, Sarpy and Otoe Businesses to add their information here

We really Encourage all small businesses to get a Square acct - so the can offer Gift Cards ( Video ) and/or a PayPal Donate Acct

Gift Cards may seem unusual for a small mechanic or plumbing firm, but the idea is simple: Critical Cash injection now, wonderful goods and services later.

Any Business, with a Square, or PayPal acct - can offer it in their listing and the navigation of the site will change as the numbers, and kinds of businesses develop.

Bottom Line, is we need Businesses to Join Here - and Churches / Non Profit Organizations Here

Nebraska helping Nebraska - we do not have to wait for the Federal Government, lets just Get"R" Done!

State Treasurer Murante Announces Free Online Financial Education Resource for Students and Adults

(Lincoln, NE) With Financial Literacy Month beginning in April, and with thousands of Nebraska school children away from school due to the COVID-19 virus, Nebraska State Treasurer John Murante today announced a free, innovative and interactive online resource designed to give Nebraska students access to financial education resources during extended absences from school.  Lessons will include topics such as financial readiness, mental wellness, career exploration and character development.

Hosted by the social impact technology leader EVERFI, Digital Lessons for Remote Learning offers kindergarten through 12th grade students interactive, online lessons on the importance of financial literacy. For more information and to get started learning, parents can visit Treasurer Murante's website, or Questions can also be directed to This email address is being protected from spambots.

"I am pleased to promote these valuable lessons during this time of crisis in our country. Many students are continuing their lessons from home and having EVERFI provide this free resource is a tremendous benefit for students and parents alike," Murante said. "It is my goal for students to have the access to the best lessons available, both in the near term, but also moving forward into the Summer months."

“Nebraska schools are faced with an unprecedented challenge but time and time again educators have found ways to step up and overcome any obstacle in their way,” said Nebraska Commissioner of Education Matthew Blomstedt.  “Educators across the state are finding new and innovative ways to continue instruction and learning in these difficult times and the addition of these free financial education resources will help ensure students all across the state will have access to quality instruction from home.”

EVERFI works with many educational institutions in Nebraska. Parents of students enrolled in partner schools should already have access to the Digital Lessons for Remote Learning site. The portal will also be available to those not currently enrolled.

“We are delighted to offer these critical skills education programs to students thanks to the generosity of our customers,” said Ray Martinez, President of EVERFI. “No one anticipated the impact COVID-19 would have on our schools, teachers and students. These programs are a direct result of the commitments made by many of the world’s leading financial institutions. Because of their dedication, we are able to offer these programs to all students during this time of national crisis.”

The Nebraska Banking Association, which works with State Treasurer Murante on a number of financial literacy initiatives, also applauded the announcement.

“Nebraska Banking Association member banks have a long-standing partnership with EVERFI and a strong commitment along with State Treasurer Murante to foster enhanced financial education across our great state.  We encourage our fellow Nebraskans and our education partners to utilize this free resource to supplement current curriculum needs.  The current coronavirus situation further reinforces the importance of understanding and practicing sound financial planning.”  Richard Baier, President and CEO, Nebraska Bankers Association.

PCS Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update-Apr. 3, 2020


Good afternoon. A safe and healthy learning environment continues to be a top priority at PCS. I understand this is a very challenging time for our students, staff members, Board, and our community. We will get through this together. It will take some time, patience, and diligence in implementing the recommended steps to prevent the spread of COVID-19 that can be found at We also need to support one another.

Our buildings have been closed since March 9, 2020. On April 1, 2020, Governor Ricketts issued a Directed Health Measure ( that stated schools statewide are directed to operate without students in their buildings through May 31, 2020.  Extracurricular activities are also cancelled statewide.  This restriction does not apply to school staff working in school buildings. Nonetheless, we have reduced staff access to buildings, in an effort to limit the spread of COVID-19 and “flatten the curve.” That being said, we will not have classes, activities or events at our buildings until after at least May 31, 2020.

This is heartbreaking for many of us, especially our seniors. We appreciate their commitment to our district and the community. Unfortunately, there are many activities and events that might not happen in their traditional formats. Regardless, we want to honor and recognize our students’ accomplishments this year.

Therefore, President Winters and I plan to meet with the student advisory board next week to discuss possible alternatives for graduation, prom, and other important events. We are looking forward to working with the students and exploring possible options that will allow our students to be honored and recognized by our school and community for their accomplishments in the 2020-2021 school year. I am confident that we will identify some appropriate alternatives. Stay tuned for more information in the next update on April 10, 2020.

Continuity of Learning

Due to the great leadership of our Board of Education, administrators, teachers, and non-certified staff members, we have a quality plan to continue learning in a remote environment for the remainder of the school year. To that end, the Nebraska Department of Education is requiring all school districts in Nebraska to submit a continuity of learning plan that is being implemented as we continue education without students in our buildings for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year. Our district’s Continuity of Learning Plan is available at We will continue to review the plan and update it, as needed, for our students. Please be patient with our dedicated professionals.

Grading is an ongoing topic of discussion, as we continue to receive feedback from the Nebraska Department of Education. Accordingly, our dedicated professionals are implementing the learning plan to support students for advancement to the next grade level. Seniors that were on track for graduation should remain on that path, with support from our educators. Seniors that were not on track for graduation will have support available to assist them with getting on track for graduation. If you have questions or comments about the remote learning plans for your children, please contact the building principals where your children attend school.

Families in Need of Assistance

Our school social workers prepared another message that includes information about community resources such as wi-fi access, food, and coping strategies. Go to and read the latest message from our school social workers. Please note that the food distribution for families will take place at our middle school starting on Monday, April 6, 2020.

If you or someone you know needs assistance with water, food, or other supplies, please contact the school social worker at the building where your child attends school.

Bond Projects

With your support, our bond issue passed in May of 2019. Recently, our Board of Education approved a proposal from Lund-Ross Constructors for some high school projects. They started construction of our high school skilled and technical sciences building addition earlier this week. There is also heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) work being done at our middle school. At the April meeting, our Board of Education will be considering proposals for projects at our early childhood center and proposals for projects at our elementary school/middle school.

In closing, I want to express my gratitude for our students, families, staff members, Board of Education, and our entire community, during this very challenging time. Our resilient community has united and supported one another, again this year. I believe this situation will make us even better together. We will get through this together, but it will take some time, patience, and diligence. Thank you for your support of our students, staff members, families, Board members, and our entire community. As always, we are #PLATTSMOUTHSTRONG!
