In these uncertain times when so many families are impacted by school closures and Social Distancing due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, the University of Nebraska High School is offering 10 courses free through July 31, 2020. Nine of the courses are for credit and one is a noncredit module on citizenship.
Learning online doesn’t mean you have to take on education alone. UNHS has helped students find their path to success for over 90 years – and we know what students need to thrive in an independent, online learning environment.

Computing Services is extending access to G Suite (Gmail, Drive, Docs, etc.) for 2020 Seniors until July 19th. This will allow schools to continue to use LPS student Gmail and Google Classroom notifications through that date. We are unable to go beyond this date as that is when we do ‘new school year rollover’ in Synergy.
Follow the directions HERE to transfer your Google Drive content to a personal account or personal computer drive, if you wish to retain it, as soon as possible.
Original message that went out to all families of Seniors.
On May 19th and 20th, all graduating seniors and students in grades 9-11 who are not returning to Lincoln East High School will have the opportunity to return their LPS items, and pick up personal belongings. Seniors will also have the opportunity to pick up their cap and gown if they have previously purchased one.
Many students share their locker space(s) with another student; if possible, please communicate with your locker partner(s) prior to May 19th so you can decide who will be picking up the bagged locker items and how those items will be returned to their owner.
To help with traffic flow, we have assigned times for students based on the first letter of their last name.
May 19th – 8:30 to 11:30 (A-G)
May 19th – 12:00 to 3:00 (H-O)
May 20th – 8:30 to 11:30 (P-Z)
May 20th – 12:00 to 3:00 (Open to ALL)

Impact of Pass/Fail Grades
Switching to a pass/fail grading system will have no impact on Class of 2020 admission, scholarship, or financial aid. (This is assuming that the students are earning pass grades.)
For the Class of 2021 and beyond, we will not penalize the students for something that is out of their control. We are Creighton; we will do what is in the best interest of the students. Our academic deans have approved this approach. We will make sure that the semester(s) of pass/fail are still solid, meaning the student is passing and not failing. We will use that in collaboration with the semesters that we have letter grades for to make a holistic admissions decision. Even in required courses, the passing grade will be sufficient for admission. Continue reading
Due to disruption of daily life brought on by the spread of COVID-19, Nebraska has extended their admission and merit scholarship deadline from May 1, 2020 to June 1, 2020.
If students scored at least a 23 on their ACT and have a strong high school GPA, they may still be eligible for a merit-based scholarship to Nebraska—all they need to do is apply to be eligible. For questions or concerns, contact email@example.com or call 402-472-2023. Continue reading
