SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. (KNEP) - Parents are putting in their input as to how the school system should operate in Scottsbluff during the pandemic. Scottsbluff Public Schools says the survey includes questions regarding if teachers and students should continue to meet in the classroom. Parents can rate the school system’s handling of the pandemic with comments and suggestions.

Scottsbluff Superintendent of Schools Rick Myles says the survey has received a thousand responses from parents all ready.

“The challenge is it is thus far so divided. You can just about thrown all the surveys in the air and let them fall where they were and that’s where it landed. And that’s just the way it is. People are all over the place whether it be they’re comfortable coming to school now they’re very uncomfortable with how things are now.” Myles adds “All of our staff members are doing double duty. We on any given day are missing 30-50 staff members between positive tests and quarantines. And we have bit of a revolving door with our kids as well for the same reasons. We now have kids testing positive all the way from pre-school on up. And we have staff members of course in all in all positions being quarantined or testing positive."

The survey can be completed on the Scottsbluff Public School’s website and the deadline to do it is on November 18. Myles says he wants staff, community and parents to know schools are doing their best to hear all voices.
