Note From Mrs. Logan

This was a week of SUMMER HEAT. Today at our Friday Assembly we talked about ways to stay cool in the heat. I think we are all missing summer days at the pool and beach! We also talked about ways we can stay cool even when we might feel frustrated, angry, tired or overwhelmed. Kids have been practicing strategies to help them stay in the Green Zone, even when they feel Red Zone emotions. Deep breathing, body stretches and positive self talk are some of the tools students have been learning. "I CAN be cool even when I am angry, tired, frustrated or overwhelmed."

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

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.
