Inclement Weather/School Closing Information
When inclement weather occurs, Papillion La Vista Community Schools will make a decision about canceling school prior to 6 a.m. whenever possible and will attempt to make a decision the night before.
Announcements will be made in the following places:
*Superintendent Rikli will make the first announcement from his Twitter at twitter.com/AndrewRikli.
*A push notification will go to the PLCS district app, which is available for free on Apple and Android mobile devices by searching for “Papillion La Vista” in the Apple iTunes Store or Google Play Store.
*Automated phone calls and text messages will be made to homes via the Blackboard messaging system starting once the decision has been made.
*Local news media also will list closings on TV and online.
If the Papillion La Vista Community Schools are not listed as closed, school will be in session as scheduled. Please do not call the school for closing information. In addition, please check one of the trusted sources listed above if you hear from elsewhere that school has been canceled.
Convenience – The need for sending cash or checks is eliminated. You can make payments at any time of the day or night. With the Auto Pay recurring payment option, your first transaction can be your last.
Peace of Mind – You will know that your child always has money available for meals and you can check the meal account balance online.
Account Information – In addition to checking account balances, you will also be able to go online to check what your child is spending each day and what items they are purchasing.
Faster Lunch Lines – As cash sales are eliminated through online deposits, lunch lines speed up in Junior and Senior High Schools, giving students more time to eat.
Before you begin enrolling, you will need to obtain the student ID number for each of your children. This is not the PIN number they use in the lunch line. Parents can obtain this number from the school or by calling the food service office at 402-537-6250. Once you have obtained the student ID number, it's easy to enroll!
If your student is going to be absent or late to school, a parent or guardian must contact the school office to report the absence. Upon their arrival to school, these students should check in at the office. Students leaving the school at any time during school hours, must check out through the office. Only upon parents’ arrival at the school will we call the student down from the classroom. If the student should return to school after an appointment, they need to check back in with the office. It is always a good idea to send a note in the morning to the student’s teacher, or email the front office, informing them of any early dismissals or appointments. Thank you!
