LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Monday, Lincoln Public Schools (LPS) and Lincoln Education Association announced adjustments have been made to the first week of school schedule for remote learners.

All remote students will be starting up to five days later, on Aug. 17. High school students Zooming-in during the 3/2 schedule and all remote learners will Zoom-in to class. The first week of school (Aug. 12-14) will be used to teach and review protocols for in-person learning.

 

“We appreciate all of the hours our staff have dedicated to preparing for the school year, and we understand this is a large undertaking,” said Superintendent Steve Joel. “Every year teachers work very hard to set high expectations by establishing strong procedures and routines. This year in-person and remote learning creates a new set of expectations to support learning during a pandemic. We understand this will not be perfect, but we want to give our teachers as much time as possible to become more comfortable in delivering Zoom-in instruction.”
