OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — There will be no school for OPS students on Election Day 2020, according to our partners at the Omaha World-Herald. November 3rd will serve as a teacher workday.

Schools serve as polling places, and the off day will make it easier to vote. District officials said 13 elementary schools, four middle schools and three high schools serve as polling places. One in three students are affected by the polling places.

The Millard and Westside School Districts have no plans of canceling classes on Election Day next year even though some of their schools also serve as polling places, spokeswomen for the district said.
