PCS Superintendent Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update - June 12, 2020




Good evening. As we continue with Phase II of reopening in Nebraska, I understand there are still many uncertainties relative to COVID-19.


Specifically, many of you are wondering what school will look like for the 2020-2021 school year. We are wondering that as well, as we await guidance from Governor Ricketts, Nebraska Department of Education (NDE) Commissioner Dr. Blomstedt, and state and local health officials. Based on the recent discussion, I anticipate we might receive guidance by the end of June relative to allowable class sizes, physical distancing, and/or the use of cloth masks.


Once we receive that guidance, we will draft potential scenarios for school opening and solicit staff and parent feedback via surveys, because we want to consider your opinions relative to school reopening plans. Your feedback is important to us. Regardless of the guidance that we receive, rest assured that health and safety will be a top consideration for what reopening looks like in the Plattsmouth Community Schools. We will develop an informed plan for our students and staff members.


At the present time, we are implementing a strength and conditioning plan that includes no more than 15 student-athletes at a time with strength training in the fitness center and no more than 15 student-athletes conditioning on the football/soccer field (weather permitting). We also developed a plan for baseball/softball with primarily student-athletes that will be in 9th through 12th grades in the 2020-2021 school year, while maintaining a focus on the health and safety for participants and fans. Given the current COVID-19 environment, these organizations have enhanced guidelines relative to the lease agreement, insurance, and facilities responsibilities.


Additional information has been released by the NSAA relative to allowable activities. We will be reviewing the information and determining whether we will be allowing additional activities on our campuses for students that will be in 9th through 12th grades in the 2020-2021 school year.


In an effort to maintain health and safety for children and adults, we do not plan to open any other indoor or outdoor facilities for public use during the month of June. June will be a trial period. I believe it is worthy of pointing out that we also do not plan to have childcare (including POPS Place) at any of our buildings during the month of June.

Sat., July 25 - A traditional, in-person ceremony in which students walk and receive their diplomas has been scheduled for this day.

I hope to have approval soon, so we can begin making formal graduation plans for our seniors!

Our meeting minutes from the June 8, 2020 Board of Education meeting minutes are available at





2020-2021 State Aid Certification is available from the Nebraska Department of Education (NDE) at PCS will have a decrease of $565,916 in State Aid for 2020-2021. When we figure in the prior year (2018-2019) correction of +$128,469 that we received in 2019-2020, the difference between 2019-2020 State Aid and 2020-2021 State Aid is even greater. At the May meeting, our Board of Education approved the 2020-2021 Budget Efficiency Plan that can be viewed at Scroll down to item 7.15.


The good news is that in 2020-2021 we estimate the second year of approximately 100 students entering kindergarten, as opposed to lower numbers from the immediately preceding years that are evident in our 1st grade (78 students), 2nd grade (88 students), 3rd, grade (93 students) and 4th grade (93 students). If you have suggestions for how our district might be more efficient with resources and address the decrease in State Aid, please submit your ideas in the Business Services/Budget section under District Topics on our Let’s Talk site at 




We are in this together. We are Blue Devil Nation! We are #PLATTSMOUTHSTRONG!
