OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) - Archdiocese of Omaha Catholic Schools will open with 100 percent of students as scheduled this fall, it was announced Thursday.

School leaders said the decision was made with guidance from state and local health officials.

Schools will implement social distancing and the wearing of masks "where and when necessary." School leaders say students will be kept in cohorts and will have limited interaction with other groups to reduce the amount of contact.

Schools will share their specific reopening plans in the coming weeks.

Vickie Kauffold, Archdiocese of Omaha Superintendent of Schools, said they will continue to monitor health department recommendations this summer as each school finalizes their safety protocols.

Papillion La Vista Schools
