Omaha, Nebraska (KMTV) — An increase in COVID-19 cases will suspend access to lockers from Monday, according to an email sent to parents of Elkhorn Middle School students.
In the meantime, sixth grade students at school must carry all the books and equipment of the day in their backpacks.
Principal Jennifer Allgood said: “This initiative addresses the growing number of COVID-positive students in the 6th grade community. This adjustment eases student traffic congestion in the corridors and socializes between students as they move between classes. It is expected that the target distance will be improved. “
“Students need to remove all classroom books and school supplies from their lockers by the end of Friday’s day,” she added.
The decision to restore locker access will be reassessed later this month.
PE lockers will continue to be used.
