CHS Graduation Is Being Reviewed For Alternative Options

Just a quick note to our seniors and their families that we are reviewing options to honor our graduates this spring. 

This ever-changing environment makes it difficult to plan for upcoming events. We hope our response to prevent the spread of this virus minimizes local impact so we can have more options available that fit public health guidelines in May. 

At this time, we know that a traditional graduation ceremony will not be possible in May, so we're exploring alternative methods to honor the Class of 2020.  We hope to have an announcement later this month.

Again, thank you for your continued patience as we all adjust to new routines and changing expectations!

Panhandle Schools Closed for the Remainder of the School Year



March 31, 2020
For more information, contact:
Kim Engel, Director, 308-760-2415, kengel@pphd.org

Panhandle schools will be operating in an alternative learning environment for the remainder of the school year.

After consultation with COVID-19 Unified Command, it has been determined that all schools in the Nebraska Panhandle will remain closed and operate in an alternative learning environment for the remainder of the 2019/2020 school year. 

Traditional graduation ceremonies are not going to be possible this May.  Schools will be working to determine appropriate alternative methods to honor the Class of 2020 in each community, whether that be a ceremony at a later date or some other locally determined alternative graduation that complies with the guidance of health officials.

We continue to monitor the unfolding COVID-19 epidemic to anticipate its impact on the Panhandle.  We are working as a unified command with Region 21, 22, and 23 Emergency Managers, and Scotts Bluff County Health Department on this evolving situation.  We will continue to communicate important updates to the public and our partners.  The CDC is putting out updated guidance daily; for the most up to date information visit: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html.  To learn more about COVID-19, go to https://www.cdc.gov/covid19.

Panhandle Public Health District is working together to improve the health, safety, and quality of life for all who live, learn, work and play in the Panhandle.  Our vision is that we are a healthier and safer Panhandle Community.  Visit our website www.pphd.org.
