School Closures due to Coronavirus



Coronavirus COVID-19 - School Closure Information


As school communities within our state prepare for and respond to a COVID-19 outbreak, it is important that we stay informed.  The NDE will add all submitted school and district closures to the COVID-19 Known School Closures page: https://www.education.ne.gov/publichealth/covid19response/. The page includes public, private, and parochial schools, and provides information on closure dates and local health department’s contact information.


We are continuously updating the COVID-19 FAQs page: https://www.education.ne.gov/publichealth/faq/. Please check back often to see the latest information.


Thank you for your continued service to students and schools.



Matthew L. Blomstedt, Ph.D.

Commissioner of Education
