COVID-19 Pandemic update for Southern Public Schools March 23, 2020
After consultation with our Health Department and other State and Local officials, it has been determined that all schools in the ESU 5 Region 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, and another announcement will be made on April 22nd concerning the rest of the 2019-2020 school year. This is a precautionary public health measure; local health and school officials are monitoring the COVID-19 situation in Southeast Nebraska closely. School Superintendents met with Public Health Solutions and determined that this action would help prevent exposure to our area to flatten the curve and decrease the spread of disease.
