Movie Night

It was an enjoyable evening watching Home Alone at the WHS. Thank you to all who participated and hosted this event.

Safety and Public Health Practices

Students in grades Pre-K through 6th are required to have an adult accompany them. Students in grades 7-12 and transition are asked to carefully consider the independence of their student and have an adult accompany if support for their individual success is needed.

What Are Unified Activities?

The Special Olympics Unified Schools Program is a fast-growing initiative that brings together students of all abilities.

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.
