Currently every school district in Nebraska is attending school participating in activities and playing Fall sports except for Omaha Public Schools.  Our children have to subjected to learnIng from home and are not as engaged as they are when they are in the classroom.  Teachers are in empty class rooms that need kids.  Teachers want kids back in the classroom.  Teachers miss their students.  Coaches want kids on the field, court, diamond, course, trails, dance floor, and marching playing that school fight song.  We have seen kids play sports all summer long with social distancing and a lack of social distancing with very little issue.  Children need after school activities to keep them safe and on the right track.  To much idle time can create kids going down the wrong track.  Omaha Public Schools has created too much idle time for our kids.  Parents have been put into hardship due to the decisions by the OPS board and Superintendent Cheryl Logan.  Businesses have suffered also due these decisions.  Employees are not as productive when they are having to work from home and make sure their kids are logged in paying attention and practicing good learning habits while trying to do their own work.  Our community Grandparents are now being put in the position of monitoring their grand kids schooling while the parents are working and have jobs that do not allow them to be home with their kids.  OPS iPads have not all been delivered which makes at home learning even harder for thousands  of children using slow and outdated small laptop computers with missing keys.  This petition is not about just sports this is about the whole school environment.  The positive effects of being in school has on our community.  Kids want to see their teachers and administrators and coaches.  Administrators, teachers, and coaches want to see the kids.  It is time for them to Learn in person.  It is time to let them Teach in person.  It is time to let them Coach in person.  It is time to let them be Students in person. We the parents of OPS students ask the OPS school board to vote in favor of students going back to school now.  Send the students back to school. 

Thank You,

Omaha Public School Parents
