FCPS To Remain Closed through May 31st
April 2, 2020
To Families in FCPS:
Falls City Public Schools and all schools in Nebraska will be operating in an alternative learning environment for the remainder of the school year.
Per Governor Rickett’s Directive Health Measure, all schools in Nebraska will remain closed and operate in an alternative learning environment for the remainder of the 2019/2020 school year. With this directive, all schools are closed to students until May 31st and cancels all extracurricular activities until May 31st.
Traditional graduation ceremonies are not going to be possible this May. Schools will be working to determine appropriate alternative methods to honor the Class of 2020 in each community, whether that be a ceremony at a later date or some other locally determined alternative graduation that complies with the guidance of health officials.
We continue to monitor the unfolding COVID-19 epidemic to anticipate its impact on our state. We are working with the Southeast District Health Department (SEDHD), the Nebraska Department of Education (NDE), and other state and local officials on this situation. We will continue to communicate important updates to the public and our partners.
