COVID-19 Updates

UPDATE - 12-29-20

We hope you are having an enjoyable holiday break and getting the much-needed rest and relaxation you all deserve.

As many of you are aware, North Platte Public Schools (NPPS) has been working with state and local health officials to coordinate the dissemination of the COVID-19 vaccination.  

At this time, we are pleased to announce January 15, 2021, and February 12, 2021, as vaccination dates for NPPS employees.  These two dates are now designated as vaccination/ teacher workdays.  On these two dates, we will not have school or after-school programs for our students.  We ask that families take time now to prepare for alternate care for their students.

We appreciate your continued support of NPPS
