Panhandle Schools Closed Through May 1st

Description automatically generated

After consultation with COVID-19 Unified Command, it has been determined that all schools in the Nebraska Panhandle will be closed through Friday, May 1st, with the possibility of schools being closed for the remainder of the 2019/2020 school year.  This decision will be re-evaluated as circumstances change, with parents and families updated accordingly and extended as needed.  This is a precautionary measure; there are currently no confirmed cases in the Panhandle; however, local health and school officials are watching the COVID-19 situation in Colorado, Wyoming, and South Dakota closely.  School Superintendents met with Unified Command and agreed this action would help prevent exposure to our area to flatten the curve and decrease the spread of disease.
