Retrieving student items for K-11

Each school will be sending families information by July 10 that includes a schedule during the last two weeks in July for your student to retrieve their belongings left at school and return any school items. Students will still keep their Chromebooks. This will be for students that were in grades K-4, 6, 7, and 9-11.


Chromebooks Check-up

It’s time to pull out your student’s Chromebook and give it a check-up! If your student hasn’t been using their Chromebook this summer for LPS Summer School, we are asking them to turn on their Chromebooks this week and make sure it is working properly.

Here’s what your student needs to do:

  1. Plug in and turn on your Chromebook.
  2. Log on to your Chromebook. (if possible)
  3. Leave your Chromebook plugged in for one hour.
  4. Power down your Chromebook and put it away.
  • Click the user panel in the bottom right corner of the screen.
  • Click on the power symbol to power down the Chromebook.

If they are experiencing problems, please contact our Help Desk at 402-436-1735. After they’ve done the check-up, don’t forget to power it off completely before putting it away.


First Day of School (Changes for grades 7-8)

Mark your calendars, here are important dates for the first week of school:

  • Wednesday, August 12 – first day of school for Kindergarten through 5, 6 and 9 grade students.
  • Thursday, August 13 – first day of school for students in grades 7-8 (NEW) and 10-12
  • Monday, August 17 – first day for preschool

Remote Learning (Zoom) Parent Permission Form open July 15

If LPS is conducting classes under yellow or orange on the risk dial, parents of any K-12 LPS student may voluntarily elect for their child to participate in remote learning during the 2020-2021 school year. If the risk dial is in green, only students with an individualized plan developed in collaboration with school and district administration will be allowed to participate in remote learning. (Please keep in mind that just like our Standard Response Protocols, every LPS building or program which provides services may not always be in the same risk color category.)

If you choose to have your child participate in remote learning via Zoom, you will be required to fill out a form that will be available starting July 15. More information will be sent to families on July 15.
