Ultimate Goal: "We have worked hard preparing what we think is a safe thorough process," Jami Ewer said. "But we've never done this before. I'm sure there will be some hiccups, but will make adjustments as needed. The ultimate goal is to keep everyone safe and complete the year appropriately."

As the semester comes to an end, the annual checkout process begins. Although students are not in the classroom, they are expected to follow specific steps and procedures to check out for the 2019-2020 school year.
According to an email sent out on April 17, The last day of e-learning is Fri. May 15. The e-learning process is required and not optional. Students that currently have textbooks and other materials at home must be returned no later than Fri. May 8. The only exception is if textbooks and other materials need to be used by the student for the last week of e-learning. The school will be open to students to return materials Monday-Friday between the hours of 9:00 am and 3:00 pm.

We have moved to a new management system for next year which is going to require us to wipe all of the student computers this summer so it will be important for students to back up all of their data that is not on Google Classroom.””

— Mr. Jerome Skrdla

The administrators have been working on a smooth checkout process following guidelines set by Gov. Pete Ricketts that will not allow students back in schools until the end of May. Assistant principal Mrs. Jami Ewer is ending her first year as an administrator helping redesign the checkout process.
“The transition to e-learning was the hardest part because none of us had ever done this before,” Mrs. Ewer said. “We had a lot of discussions to ensure we had thought of all of the details. We made some adjustments after the first week or two. From then, it has gone pretty smoothly. The checkout process is similar. We have had many meetings and discussions to ensure safety and cover all of the items that need to be taken care of such as items left in lockers, library books, computer check-in, textbook collection, paying fines, students completing work, etc.”
Although this is the process for most things, there are more steps in order to successfully check in the laptops for the school year. Tech coordinator Jerome Skrdla and the administration have a modified plan regarding the school laptops.
“We have modified our check-in process to work with the computer check-in,” Skrdla said. “ The administration consulted with the tech staff to develop a plan. We will have 9-11th grade students turn in their computers but keep their chargers again this summer to make the check-in process go a little faster. Seniors will check in their computers and chargers on May 11th and 12th. We have moved to a new management system for next year which is going to require us to wipe all of the student computers this summer so it will be important for students to back up all of their data that is not on Google Classroom.”
Although the process changed, it will cover all items such as textbooks, laptops, students completing work, while ensuring a safe and successful checkout process for all students.
