Safe Return to School

Safe Return to School Plan 2023-2024


The Safe Return to School Plan provides guidance on how Scottsbluff Public Schools will operate during the 2022-2023 school year. We believe that our schools continue to be the safest place for our students, and evidence has shown face-to-face instruction is the most effective way to ensure our students continue to progress both academically and socially. The SBPS Safe Return to School Plan is based upon input from district staff and guidance from the local health department. Please take some time to review the plan, it will remain a dynamic document. Thank you in advance for your help in supporting the continued success of this effort.


  1. Everyone, as well as everyone's needs, ideas, and perspectives must be respected
  2. The health and safety of our students and of our staff are our most important priorities.


  1. Keep kids healthy and in school
  2. Keep "frontline" (staff in our schools) safe
  3. Keep parents working and help strengthen the local economy
