Safety and Public Health Practices

We are offering the first of our 2020-2021 events in an outdoor setting and at a location where it should be possible to socially distance. All equipment will be disinfected prior to and following use. Participants will also be asked to use hand sanitizer prior to borrowing fishing equipment unless they are medically unable to.


In addition, we will require all students and parents attending to wear a mask as a precaution to the spread of viruses. Though outside, we believe this to be the safest practice in ensuring the safety of all in attendance.

What Are Unified Activities?

The Special Olympics Unified Schools Program is a fast-growing initiative that brings students with and without intellectual disabilities together.


As Unified Champion Schools, we partner with Special Olympics Nebraska to implement a three-component strategy focused on Inclusive Sports, Inclusive Youth Leadership, and Whole-School Engagement. These three components bring students with and without intellectual disabilities together to promote a positive school climate, develop physical fitness, prevent bullying, enhance student engagement, and promote student leadership skills.
