OMAHA, NE — The Omaha Public School board has scheduled a special meeting on Tuesday, September 8 to evaluate how the school system moves forward during the coronavirus pandemic.

One item on the agenda is a proposal to draft a plan to submit to the Nebraska School Activities Association to play fall sports in the spring, along with the traditional spring sports. When OPS decided to move to 100% remote learning, it also canceled all fall sports activities, including football.

Also on the agenda is a proposal to draft a plan for the safe return of winter sports scheduled to begin November 16, 2020. Those sports include basketball, swimming and diving, wrestling and bowling.
