Ainsworth Community Schools will not return to “Normal School Operations” for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. This was a difficult decision to make, but please understand this decision was made with direction and recommendation from the Nebraska Department of Education and the North Central District Health Department. Our intent is to continue to follow the recommendations of NDE and NCDHD in the event new recommendations or guidance is given prior to the end of the school year. Please see the letter from Roger Wiese, Health Director, at NCDHD received by school officials on March 23, 2020.
We will continue to provide educational opportunities for all students and our teaching staff has implemented an ongoing Continuity of Learning Plan to be implemented as required by the Nebraska Department of Education in this time of school closure. What this means is that education will continue for students with teachers and staff supporting that learning at least through the planned school calendar. Thank you for your flexibility at this time.
Please stay tuned for updates as we work on how to best handle activities such as Graduation. Our intent is to do everything we can to make that happen, even if it is at a later date than currently scheduled. This decision hopefully gives at least more clarity and a timeline to our current situation. We will continually monitor the situation and will communicate if recommendations from NDE and NCDHD change our current plan and direction. Thank you.

Ainsworth Community Schools wants to be as candid as we can about the events that are planned for the last portion of March, running all the way through the end
of the school year. Due to the ever-changing nature of COVID-19, we will constantly be adjusting to the recommendations of national and local health officials. We are
assuming that many of the recommendations coming forward will NOT be conducive to the social nature of almost all extra-curricular activities at our school.
We will continue to hold out hope, but as collegiate and professional leagues have cancelled spring sports and championship events like the College World Series in
June, there becomes an ever-decreasing likelihood that many of our events will be able proceed as planned. With that being said, we would recommend parents to
hold off spending money on anything that would be specific to any extra-curricular event or major ceremony. Included in this would be workout or meet gear for track
and field and golf; tuxes, dresses, and flowers for prom; specific dress for awards ceremonies or concerts; and any possible expense that might come with any other
extra-curricular event offered by the school.
We will try not to cancel too early, but want to be as honest with you as possible about what we are forecasting for April and May. If you have specific questions
please feel free to contact Mr. Hansmeyer or Mr. Steinhauser in the Activities Department office or Mr. Dike in the Secondary Principal office.
Points of Emphasis:
-NSAA has suspended all practices until Monday, March 30th
-All activity competitions are postponed until Thursday, April 2nd
-At this time, all Ainsworth events scheduled through Saturday, April 4th have been cancelled or postponed.
-For April and May events, we are waiting for changes from the health department. Without change, most of these events will be in question. (Including all organizational meetings, practices, concerts, conferences, meets, ceremonies, events, etc. etc. etc.)
-Prom and the Graduation Ceremony are two special activities that we will work extra-hard to make happen. When and what either of those two events will look like will be determined in the days/weeks/months ahead.
Here is the schedule for picking up meals on Mondays and Wednesdays:
11:15 to 11:30: A - C (Big A Doors) D - F (West Elem Doors) G - I (East Elem Doors)
11:30 to 11:45: J - K (Big A Doors) L - N (West Elem Doors) O - Q (East Elem Doors)
