Patrons of Loup City Public Schools:

As this is a fluid situation and we promised our patrons to re-evaluate the situation each night we have decided Loup City Public Schools will be closed through March 31st at which time we will re-evaluate our situation. We will continue to communicate with our patrons, parents and students as to how we will be delivering our academic programs and nutrition programs available to our students.
I appreciate your cooperation and understanding as we move through uncharted waters.

Angela Simpson, Superintendent

Notice to Parents:  Effective Monday, March 16 all NSAA activity practices are suspended until Monday, March 30th and all NSAA activity competitions are suspended until Thursday, April 2nd. These suspensions may be extended should the conditions warrant.

Good Evening:  Loup City Public Schools is planning to continue to stay open until we are informed by the Loup Basin Public Health Department or the State of Nebraska that we will need to close.

We understand that we will be informed of mandatory closure if there is a case of "community spread" in our Educational Service Unit area. Currently we do not have a case of the virus in our area. This is a fluid situation and we are in contact with state and local health departments, emergency management and the State Department of Education. We want you to know that we are trying to do the best for our students and our community.

In the meantime we will take several precautions to lessen the mitigation of the virus. Here are a few of the changes we will put into place:

  • We will not be allowing our students to travel out of the district for any school activities.
  • We will be postponing all internal activities like concerts or assemblies.
  • We will not be allowing visitors into the building.
  • We will not be allowing any outside activities to be held in our building such as youth sport practices. This will include weight room use by community members.
  • We will be continuing to allow practices but will be not be attending any sporting events until further notice.

I know that a commonly asked question is in regards to Prom and Commencement. We are unsure at this time but we will make every attempt to hold these activities but they may be delayed or announcements made closer to the time of Prom or Commencement as the picture becomes clearer.

We are finishing up our plans to address the continuation of our educational services and the nutritional needs of our students when we are asked to close the school buildings. As I said in our earlier communication, please begin to make some plans for your children now.

I have called a Special Session of Loup City Public Schools Board of Education for Thursday, March 19th at 7pm in the Loup City High School Commons to address issues related to possible school closure.

I appreciate your understanding and your communication. Please feel free to contact me by email at angela.simpson@lcpublic.org, by phone at 308-745-0120 ext 202, or you are welcome to set up a time to meet me in my office.

Respectfully,

Angela Simpson, Superintendent

Notes from the Superintendent.    

I have had the opportunity to visit with some of our parents and appreciate the phone calls I have received with questions and hope we can continue to be of help. At this time Loup City Public Schools does not have the conditions necessary to close our schools. But I would be remiss if I didn't ask our families to think about and discuss a plan of action should that become necessary in the future. We continue to work with Sherman County Emergency Management, City of Loup City, Loup Basin Public Health, Educational Service Unit 10, the Department of Education and the State of Nebraska to keep up to date and do the right thing for our students.

We have and will continue to make announcements about any activity changes. To date the following activities have been cancelled: FFA, FBLA, and FCCLA State conferences.

I appreciate all of the communication and hope we at Loup City Public Schools can be helpful in this current situation.
