GIPS to transition Ombudsman program to remote learning for 2 weeks

Grand Island Public Schools is making the decision to transition its Ombudsman program to remote learning for the next two weeks.

This decision comes after an Ombudsman staff member tested positive for COVID-19.

This will impact the rest of the semester for the Ombudsman program. Students will be able to continue their program remotely. 

The Ombudsman program serves about 70 high school students.

The district is working in conjunction with the Central District Health Department to conduct contact tracing. On-site courses for the program will continue on Jan. 5.

“There are still challenges with COVID-19 and we’re adapting to face them,” said GIPS Superintendent Dr. Tawana Grover. 

No other GIPS campuses are impacted at this time.

Grand Island Public Schools continues to deploy and refine safety protocols to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. We appreciate the ongoing commitment from the community to keep our students and staff safe and our schools open.
