PCS Superintendent Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update - July 24, 2020

Parents/Guardians/Patrons/Staff,

 

Good evening. The heat is on again this weekend.

On Tuesday, we distributed the PCS Fall 2020 Return to School Protocols that were developed based on guidance from Governor Pete Ricketts, Nebraska Department of Education (NDE) Commissioner Dr. Matt Blomstedt, and the Sarpy/Cass Health Department (SCHD), along with consideration of survey data from parents/guardians and staff members. Our return to school team included teacher representatives, administrators, nurses, school social workers, before and after school program representatives, school resource officers, nutrition services, transportation, custodial, and maintenance, and other stakeholders. Click HERE for a brief overview of some key items from the protocols for returning to school. 

 

 

The Sarpy/Cass Health Department released a COVID-19 dial that includes four levels of risk, including green-low risk, yellow-moderate risk, orange-high risk, and red-severe risk of COVID-19. At the present time, the Sarpy/Cass Health Department has determined that we are in the yellow (moderate risk) level. We plan on returning to school with 100% of students in-person with a mask requirement and follow our yellow (moderate risk) protocols. If our risk level changes, we might also adjust our plan and implement protocols at the corresponding risk level. 

 

Our principals and other staff members are working on building plans that will have specific details about what many of these protocols will look like in each of our buildings while considering the varying developmental need of our students. Please be patient with them as they develop specific guidelines for each building.


I anticipate that our protocols and the brief overview document will answer many of your questions, but we also developed a frequently asked questions (FAQ) document that is available by clicking HERE. This document will be an ongoing work in progress as we progress into the 2020-2021 school year.  

 

We are looking forward to seeing our students at PCS this fall. Thank you for the support of the Plattsmouth Community Schools during a very unique environment for all of us. #PLATTSMOUTHSTRONG

 

 Activities

 

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.

 

We are allowing additional district-sponsored activities on our campuses for students that will be in 9th through 12th grades in the 2020-2021 school year in July. 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 July. July is a trial period, given that there are still many unknowns with COVID-19. 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 July.

The Plattsmouth Community Schools and OPAA! continue to provide food for families at no charge for any child in a household from birth to age 18 regardless of income. Meals are being distributed by the sidewalk near the front entrance of Plattsmouth Middle School at 1724 8th Ave. Meals are distributed each weekday in one shift between 11:00 AM and 1:00 PM. Each child will receive one lunch for that day and one breakfast for the following day. We plan to continue this format on weekdays through the summer until Fri., July 31, 2020. Everyone that has been receiving deliveries will continue to receive them in the same format that has been used up to this point with one delivery per week.

 

To help us get an accurate meal count, if you need food assistance, please call 402-296-3361 and provide the necessary information.

2020-2021 State Aid Certification is available from the Nebraska Department of Education (NDE) at https://www.education.ne.gov/fos/state-aid/. 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 https://bit.ly/2WU23u1. 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 https://bit.ly/2Y9ua9N.

We heard that it was difficult to hear the audio in our Board meeting broadcast. We apologize for the inconvenience and are working on improving the sound for future meetings. Draft minutes from the Board meeting on July 13 are available by clicking HERE.

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