Omaha Public Schools superintendent to ‘make athletes mad’ with announcement Friday
OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - Omaha Public Schools is expected to announce Friday whether the district will have fall sports.
In a late-night virtual meeting, OPS Superintendent Dr. Cheryl Logan stated her decision could make the “athletes mad.”
The superintendent also talked about contact tracing and how that impacted school athletics, where there have already been positive cases.
Dr. Logan said the district sacrificed the beginning of the school year so they could have sports.
She called it a bad move.
She said she will be speaking about all of this Friday with the school board and says some athletes will be mad.
“I’ll be sharing with the board tomorrow very bad news. Our athletes are going to be mad, but we can either have school or we can have sports — can’t have both,” Logan said. “There’s a lot of spread, we just had to quarantine 17 in one school off one very close contact on maybe Tuesday.”
Late last month, Omaha Public Schools canceled the rest of its summer activities, including practices, to further limit groups.
