We'll give students two extra days of summer!   :)
With the many changes to the procedures of school due to COVID-19 concerns, Chadron Public Schools will spend two extra days with teachers for training and preparations before students arrive.   Pending final School Board approval at the next regular meeting, the first day of school for students will be Monday, August 17th. No announcement has been made whether it'll be a full day or a 1:30 dismissal yet.
Teachers are already scheduled for three full days of inservice trainings on a variety of topics, the two extra days will provide time for additional training and practice of online learning platforms (like Google Classroom), discussions on instruction and grades during possible prolonged student absences as well as time to finalize classroom management and room arrangements for preventative COVID-19 measures.
