OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — An elementary and high school in the Omaha Public Schools district will be moving to remote-only learning due to COVID-19 cases.

Omaha North High School will make the change on Tuesday and will continue through Nov. 17. No activities or athletic events will be held during that time.

North High Principal Collette Nero shared the announcement with students and families via a letter and said the school had 10 active cases of COVID-19. Tuesday's shift was also posted on the school's Facebook page.

Nero said all North High staff were to be tested for coronavirus on Monday.

School meals will be available for pick up through the Meals2Go program at nearby campuses.

The Omaha World-Herald reports Indian Hill Elementary will make the change on Tuesday as well but will, tentatively, shift back to in-person learning on Nov. 16.

The two schools join Burke High School, also part of OPS, in going remote. Burke switched to remote-only learning last Friday.
