10:00am Late Start Due to Winter Weather on Monday, October 26th. Students may report at 9:45 for entrance into buildings. Snow is expected to continue through the night ending early in the morning, but icy roads, blowing winds, and negative wind chill temperatures will also affect early morning travel routines. If the weather situation escalates to warrant further changes to our day tomorrow, communication will be to families as early as possible. We understand the challenges that schedule changes have on our families and we will always do our best to get communication to families in a timely manner. We didn't get our annual winter weather guidelines shared yet this year because it is ONLY OCTOBER!!! ACK! Nevertheless, here we go: *Our staff is monitoring the weather and we are in frequent communication with the National Weather Service and other local school districts, along with local law enforcement when monitoring winter driving conditions. While we talk to other districts, our situations are all different, therefore our decisions may not be the same in all weather events. *We make the decision based, above all else, regarding the safety of our students. *MOST IMPORTANTLY--Parents may always keep students home if they do not think it is safe. You know your situation better than anyone. Simply call the school to let us know. If weather permits later in the day for your student to attend, we would love to see them....even if they are late. Your student is always welcome! *Winter in Nebraska can be challenging. Dress in warm layers, limit time outdoors, and make alternate arrangements if your student usually walks to school. Above all, be safe---you all are the most important part of Chant Nation!

In keeping with open and transparent communication, we are sharing that we have reported an additional case of a staff member testing positive for Covid-19 that has job responsibilities at both OES and OHS. Out of an abundance of caution and to ensure that everything possible to minimize additional cases or additional quarantine situations stemming from this positive case is being done, students at OHS will continue to be required to wear masks until further notice and students at OES will now be required to wear masks unless outside and social distanced. We realize the unique challenges that this brings to our schools but we must do everything possible to work towards our goal of All Students, All Day, Every Day. The staff case is reported as community spread but is not believed to be related to the previous positive student or staff cases. Due to masks being used, the quarantine impact on other staff members is minimal. Close contact with student athletes was identified outside of school where masks were not present, therefore there are a small number of students quarantining, but no student contacts from the school day are needing to quarantine at this point. Family members and close contact individuals have been directed to quarantine per the Loup Basin guidelines. Additional deep cleaning is occurring in high contact areas in both buildings. We will continue to monitor the health of our local community and work with Loup Basin Health Department to communicate our Operational Zones. The Return To School Plan can be found at the Ord Public Schools website www.ordps.org.

CAN’T STOP, WON'T STOP FEEDING OUR KIDS! We are happy to announce the USDA Summer Food Service Program has been given an extension due to the COVID-19 pandemic. All enrolled and attending K-12 students of Ord Public Schools will be eligible to receive meals for free, regardless of their economic status. Again, all students, no matter what their Free/Reduced/Full Pay status, will receive free breakfast and lunch. This program is authorized until the program no longer is funded or until December 31, 2020. Meals will include both our breakfast program and our lunch program. Optional extra purchased items will still be charged to student accounts. We were able to apply for the program to be retro-active so if your child has been charged for a meal during the 2020-21 school year, we will be crediting their meal accounts for those meals. We will not be issuing cash back but rather crediting accounts to be used when our regular food service program resumes in January 2021. Since this crediting process may take some time, we ask that you be patient as we undertake this process. We hope that this program will provide our students and families with some economic relief in the fall semester and are pleased to be a part of this program with the USDA.
Just a reminder to softball fans that the game scheduled for tonight with Twin River is cancelled.

We will continue to monitor the health of our local community and work with Loup Basin Health Department to communicate our Operational Zones. The Return To School Plan can be found at the Ord Public Schools website www.ordps.org.

If you did not receive an email and feel that you should have, please check your SPAM file first and then call the District Office at 308-728-5013 ext 6 to ensure your email information is up to date. If you did not return the form, your student was not included on the route schedule. As a reminder, there is no courtesy shuttle between the two buildings this year.

As communicated earlier this month, the Ord Public Schools Return to School plan can now be found at www.ordps.org. It is important to realize that although a great deal of time and thought went into this plan, we will need to remain flexible to react to the health status of our community as that will be what dictates the plan. Just as a reference--If today was the first day of school, we would be in the low yellow operational zone but things can change quickly. The plan may need to be tweaked a bit as we move into August and many school districts that have rolled out their plans already are adjusting to changes in their respective communities. Most importantly, we appreciate everyone's flexibility and patience as we plan for the 2020-21 school year. A Frequently Asked Questions and one-page Quick Guide to our plan will be shared next week as we get closer to the school year starting. First day of school is August 18th and we are looking forward to welcoming our students back in our buildings. Stay Healthy Chant Nation so we can see you all soon!
OHS Students Grades 9-12: If you have not registered for classes online yet, please do so by July 31st. If you are not registered by the 31st, please contact Mrs. Kruml or Mr. Snyder to find out how to register.
Due to the bus driver shortage and changes to cleaning schedules for busses in response to COVID-19, we are unfortunately unable to offer courtesy transportation between Ord Elementary and Ord High School before and after school for the 2020-21 school year. Students will not be able to ride between buildings before and after school. We realize that this is a service that many of our families have used over the years, but with the increased social distancing that must occur on the busses, assigned seating, and deep cleaning of busses whenever students load and unload, we are unable to offer this service for this school year. We simply do not have the number of drivers to drive the number of busses needed to make this happen. With the limited drivers, the focus will be on maintaining route transportation for Ord Public School students. In order to help students with the crossing of L street, we are looking at options of having a crossing guard to help students. More information on this will be shared closer to the start of school. Once again, we regret that we will not be able to offer the courtesy shuttle between our two buildings for the 2020-21 school year. It was not an easy decision to make but without drivers and the impact of COVID-19, we are unable to sustain our previous transportation operations. Thank you in advance for your understanding and flexibility as we start to finalize school planning during this unprecedented time.
Students in grades 9-12 that have indicated they would like to compete in cross country, please check your student email for information about the start of practice. Any other student that would like to compete in cross country should email Mr. Trampe at firstname.lastname@example.org.

If you do not fill out and submit the form, you will not be included on route planning. If you need assistance with this or an additional form, please contact the District Office at 728-5013 ext. 6.

Chant Nation!! We are getting closer to the start of the 2020-21 school year with the first scheduled day of classes August 18th. Ord Public Schools is planning on starting on-time and in full session....meaning all kids, every day, each day. The health of our community is what will dictate these plans so keep doing a great job of staying healthy Ord! Throughout the school closure in the spring, planning over the summer, and in regards to the upcoming school year, we have worked on making decisions in a two-week window for planning purposes. We have found that planning for longer range scenarios than this has been difficult with the ever-changing landscape during the pandemic and thus leads to confusion when trying to determine what restrictions, guidelines, or recommendations will guide schools re-opening. Things are still changing on a quick timeline. Plans for the 2020-21 school year in regards to expectations, restrictions, and health guidance will be shared by the end of July. In the meantime, we are working hard on making plans and adjustments so we can welcome our students and staff back in August. A parent survey will be coming out this week and sent to the parent email that is on file with the district. Orientation sessions will be scheduled for Kindergarten and 7th Grade. The community support has been greatly appreciated throughout this entire process. We appreciate all that you continue to do to support your students and your community. Go Chants--and we will see you all soon!
If you are an OHS student who is interested in trying out for Cheer, contact Mrs. Bauer at email@example.com by July 19th.

Over the summer, we have planned maintenance projects that will require the stadium, field, and track to be closed for short periods of time. When we paint, fertilize, or make repairs, it is not safe for community members to be on the track, field, or stadium. We realize that many of our community members use the track for exercise so wanted to communicate this information and keep everyone safe. If the walk-through gate is locked and closed, the track, field, and stadium is also closed. If the gate is unlocked, please feel free to use the facilities for exercise. Thank you for your cooperation.

Dear Ord Families Governor Ricketts issued an order Wednesday night requiring Nebraska schools to operate without students in buildings through May 31. With that Directed Health Measure, we now know that we will not be able to physically come back together this school year; Ord Public Schools facilities will remain closed with our remote learning format to continue. We had held out hope we would be reunited with our students this school year, but we have also been preparing for this scenario. Staff will now begin finalizing plans since we now know we will not be able to be together in our classrooms this school year. We will continue our remote learning plans as we have done these past two weeks. Assignments will continue to be provided by teachers to help with the retention of skills. Our emphasis is on staying academically and socially engaged, providing learning opportunities, and reviewing key concepts. We want to continue to focus on learning as opposed to grading. This is not a concern that we need to address at this time. We just want everyone to simply do the best they can. We understand that schedules, supports, and learning styles vary greatly. Stay engaged with us and we will do our best to meet the needs of our students. In continuing to support the needs of our students and families, our plan is to continue to provide breakfast and lunches free of charge to our students until we are no longer able to do this to align with public health department guidance. Updates on menus and plans will be made weekly. We are also here for mental health/emotional support. If you need help for yourself or your child regarding behavior, mental help support, or how you can access help, please call your students' school and speak with either the Principal or the Guidance Counselor. Your information will be kept private and we will do our best to help you. Closing our schools for the rest of the year also impacts extra-curricular events and high profile events. The spring activities season has officially been cancelled by NSAA. We are uncertain as to what other historical events that the school hosts during this time will look like, such as Prom, Graduation, Kindergarten Orientation, etc. but we will be making decisions on those events in the near future. We will be planning a virtual meeting with Senior students and families next week to communicate plans for Seniors. We realize that there are many questions that we are not able to answer yet. Guidance is coming to schools from the Governor and the Education Commissioner, along with Federal Guidelines, that will impact many of the decisions that we are trying to make. This is a common theme for all schools to work through these new changes and plan for additional developments as our community, country and world continue to respond to this pandemic. We will continue to iron out details as we work through this and will have follow up communication as plans develop. We do not want to overwhelm you with communication, and our goal is to share as much as possible with you to keep everyone on the same page. Thank you for your support, engagement, and patience. As we all navigate this uncertain journey, please give grace, support others, and take time to take care of yourself and your family. We are all in this together. Just keep doing your best. We appreciate all that you’re doing. Better days are ahead and we look forward to being together again. Stay strong Chant Nation! Sincerely, Dr. Heather Nebesniak
Due to the anticipated severe weather forecast for Friday, April 3rd there will be no meal service for students tomorrow. Please stay safe!
We are still here today (4/2) handing out lunches. Hope to see you there!!
Based on the recommendations from the Loup Basin, Two Rivers and Central District Health Departments and the Nebraska Commissioner of Education, Ord Public Schools will extend their facility closure date to students through May 1, 2020 to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Our school district will continue to provide remote educational learning opportunities for our students according to our school plan. A decision of this magnitude would not be made if we didn't feel that it was necessary to help ensure the general welfare and safety of our communities. We will communicate on April 16th with our public health departments to review current health information that is available at that time.
The Ord Public Schools Board of Education held an Emergency Meeting on Wednesday, March 25, 2020 at 11:30 am in regards to the national and state emergency over the COVID-19 pandemic. Meeting agenda and minutes can be viewed here: https://meeting.sparqdata.com/Public/Organization/Ord

| OHS PICKUP INFORMATION | Students and Parents of OHS, We recognize the need for students to collect materials from teachers and lockers. To accommodate all of our students, a schedule was created to alleviate all students from coming at once. The schedule can be seen below. If the schedule does not work for your family, please contact the front office to make other arrangements. Starting MONDAY, MARCH 23rd, we ask that students arrive at our south entrance near the high school office. Upon arrival, Mr. Snyder will make contact with you to determine what you need from the building. Your items will be relayed to a teacher, who will gather them and bring them to you. PLEASE REMAIN IN YOUR VEHICLE OR OUTSIDE DURING THIS PROCESS. Thank you for your patience during this time. Last Names: A-D 8:00-8:45 E-G 8:45-9:30 H-K 9:30-10:15 L-O 10:15-11:00 P-S 11:00-11:45 T-V 11:45-12:30 W-Z 12:30-1:15
Ord Elementary Parents please pick up your student’s Learning Plan & Materials at OES on Monday, March 23rd between 6:30AM-6:30PM. Much like morning drop off, please stay in your vehicle, we will deliver your plan & materials curbside. Simply pull up, tell us your student’s name and teacher, we will have staff deliver the packets to you.
Please come by OHS if you would like to have 2-3 Grab and Go Breakfasts and Lunches for your children. All children 18 and Under can get these meals free of charge. Children do not need to be present. If you are unable to make it to the school and would like meals for your children, please contact either school office and we will make arrangements to get the food to you.
Guidelines that will need to be followed regarding activities at Ord Public Schools during our school closure period are as follows: Activity/Sports Practices--Coaches and sponsors will not meet with the participants in their respective activities during this time. If students want to communicate with their coaches, they can but they should not meet with them for direct instruction. Accessibility to Indoor Facilities--Students and community members will not be allowed to use the indoor facilities of Ord Public Schools during the closure. This allows us to keep the facilities clean and disinfected for the safety of all involved. Outdoor Facilities--The track and golf course will be available for students that want to work on improving their skills. However, please limit the number of students that would be in a group. You will want to keep distance between yourself and the other people that may be using the track or the golf course. The school will not provide equipment for practice. For example, we will not make pole vault poles, shot puts, discuses, or high jump standards available for student use. This is a liability issue that we need to avoid. Again, this is in accordance with guidelines that are currently set. We would encourage students to get some type of workout in if they desire but there will be NO mandatory practice sessions during the school closure. As per NSAA guidelines, a coach may not provide direct instruction to more than 4 athletes at one time when a season is not in session. Since the spring activities seasons have been suspended, they are now considered not in session. Since school is not in session, no coach or sponsor will be meeting with students. Our coaches must adhere to this ruling. We will update these guidelines if and when we receive more information and direction from the NSAA and the other government agencies that are monitoring our current situation. Thank you to all for your patience and understanding as we work our way through these unusual times. Derry Trampe, Activities Director
OPS Families, We are working on developing a plan to continue the school lunch program through a "Grab-and-Go" delivery. On Wednesday, March 18th from 11:00am - 1:00pm, we will be providing a Take-Out Lunch and Breakfast for our students. Families that are interested may drive up curbside at Ord High School by Entrance 20 by the New Gym to get 2-3 lunches and 2-3 breakfasts per student. With the anticipated winter weather in our area on Thursday, this will be the only pick-up this week. Our plans are to have this on a daily basis starting next week. This is an evolving plan and we will do our best to adjust to the needs of our students. Priority is to get breakfast/lunches to our students as soon as possible until we can have a daily meal provided for our students. If you have food concerns for your family, please contact either school office and we will help your family.

Administrators and staff will be working to provide for the nutrition and educational needs of our students during this closure. More information will be shared with our community as soon as plans have been finalized. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work together to navigate these unprecedented times.
