PAPILLION, Neb. (KMTV) — Papillion La Vista Community Schools have announced a remote learning option for the fall.

The school district says the remote program is a completely separate program from the face-to-face instruction.

A registration link for the remote learning program will be sent to families through e-mail on July 28, which will need to be completed by July 31. Remote learning will start on August 18.

Students who choose the remote learning option must enroll on a semester to semester basis. After the completion of the semester, students can decide whether to move on campus or continue learning remotely.
