Note From Mrs. Logan

There are so many things that I have missed in the last 5 months due to the pandemic. I have missed giving my own Mom hugs, eating at my favorite Mexican restaurant and going to the gym to work out. What I realized this week is how much I missed the children of Holling Heights. Being surrounded this week by their smiles, joy, innocence, hunger for learning, and love of life I recognized how empty I had been over the last few months without them.

Thank you for your help and support in safely reopening our school and trusting us with their care. It is obvious that you have modeled for your children the importance of wearing a mask, washing hands and keeping socially distanced. The children have thrived at these new school expectations. We look forward to continuing the learning journey with your child. It's going to be a great year at Holling Heights!

Parents please help us out

  • Check your email consistently and read all information carefully
  • Ensure that each morning your child has a clean mask to wear to school
  • Ensure that each morning your child has a clean water bottle (drinking fountains will not be able to be used but students can fill their water bottles)
  • When you are on school property be in a mask yourself
  • Respect the distance of other people when on school property

Remote Meals

For students who are remote learning at home breakfast and lunch meals will be available for purchase according to the individual student’s eligibility (Free, Reduced, Paid). The order form will be made available on each Saturday for the upcoming week. Orders may be submitted in advance of the date of pickup however, the meals may only be picked up on the applicable day of service. The remote meals menu will align with the in-school menu for each grade level.

Meals will be distributed curbside pick-up from 11:00 am - 12:00 pm daily. Due to USDA menu guidelines student meals must be picked up from the student’s applicable grade level building. Meals may be picked up from the designated location between 11:00 am - 12:00 pm daily. Meals will be distributed via curbside which allows for social distance between the public and kitchen staff.

Families can click here to submit an order by 9:00 am the day of service to receive a breakfast and/or lunch. An individual submission must be submitted for each student requesting a meal. If you have any questions please call 402-715-1440.

Covid-19 Webpage

We recognize that communication is essential. We have updated our COVID-19 webpage. You can find it in the bright yellow banner at the top of our district website, www.mpsomaha.org Because information changes so quickly, a web page is the best place for updated information. The webpage has many resources on it, and I want to draw your attention to four specific links:

  • Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ): These are continuously updated as we see new questions come up from the community. The FAQ has a topical index that makes searching quick and efficient.

  • Return to School Safety Protocols: This link provides information about our safety protocols. These are items such as cleaning, lunch, masks, etc. Your building principal will also send building specific protocols prior to the start of school.

  • Positive Cases & Exposure: This link explains how we will respond to positive cases and exposures.

  • Health & Safety Quick Reference: We have created a sheet regarding symptom checks, mask wearing tips, handwashing, etc. This is a printable document that can be used as a quick reference.
