State Treasurer Murante Announces Free Online Financial Education Resource for Students and Adults

(Lincoln, NE) With Financial Literacy Month beginning in April, and with thousands of Nebraska school children away from school due to the COVID-19 virus, Nebraska State Treasurer John Murante today announced a free, innovative and interactive online resource designed to give Nebraska students access to financial education resources during extended absences from school.  Lessons will include topics such as financial readiness, mental wellness, career exploration and character development.

Hosted by the social impact technology leader EVERFI, Digital Lessons for Remote Learning offers kindergarten through 12th grade students interactive, online lessons on the importance of financial literacy. For more information and to get started learning, parents can visit Treasurer Murante's website, or Questions can also be directed to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

"I am pleased to promote these valuable lessons during this time of crisis in our country. Many students are continuing their lessons from home and having EVERFI provide this free resource is a tremendous benefit for students and parents alike," Murante said. "It is my goal for students to have the access to the best lessons available, both in the near term, but also moving forward into the Summer months."

“Nebraska schools are faced with an unprecedented challenge but time and time again educators have found ways to step up and overcome any obstacle in their way,” said Nebraska Commissioner of Education Matthew Blomstedt.  “Educators across the state are finding new and innovative ways to continue instruction and learning in these difficult times and the addition of these free financial education resources will help ensure students all across the state will have access to quality instruction from home.”

EVERFI works with many educational institutions in Nebraska. Parents of students enrolled in partner schools should already have access to the Digital Lessons for Remote Learning site. The portal will also be available to those not currently enrolled.

“We are delighted to offer these critical skills education programs to students thanks to the generosity of our customers,” said Ray Martinez, President of EVERFI. “No one anticipated the impact COVID-19 would have on our schools, teachers and students. These programs are a direct result of the commitments made by many of the world’s leading financial institutions. Because of their dedication, we are able to offer these programs to all students during this time of national crisis.”

The Nebraska Banking Association, which works with State Treasurer Murante on a number of financial literacy initiatives, also applauded the announcement.

“Nebraska Banking Association member banks have a long-standing partnership with EVERFI and a strong commitment along with State Treasurer Murante to foster enhanced financial education across our great state.  We encourage our fellow Nebraskans and our education partners to utilize this free resource to supplement current curriculum needs.  The current coronavirus situation further reinforces the importance of understanding and practicing sound financial planning.”  Richard Baier, President and CEO, Nebraska Bankers Association.

-----------------------------  - Simple Numbers:


1 in 5 Nebraska people that receive their Corona Virus Check next week is fortunate enough to not have any real pressing need.

Many of these people want and would help small businesses, but there is no obvious (and non offensive) to invest and support.

There is a better that 3 times benefit to the Community, for every dollar invested in the Survival of the Small Business Community.

Small Business Owners, with shuttered Doors need cash now - to retain critical employees, pay rent and cling to their customers.

With that in Mind: We Launched We need all Small Cass, Sarpy and Otoe Businesses to add their information here

We really Encourage all small businesses to get a Square acct - so the can offer Gift Cards ( Video ) and/or a PayPal Donate Acct

Gift Cards may seem unusual for a small mechanic or plumbing firm, but the idea is simple: Critical Cash injection now, wonderful goods and services later.

Any Business, with a Square, or PayPal acct - can offer it in their listing and the navigation of the site will change as the numbers, and kinds of businesses develop.

Bottom Line, is we need Businesses to Join Here - and Churches / Non Profit Organizations Here

Nebraska helping Nebraska - we do not have to wait for the Federal Government, lets just Get"R" Done!

PCS Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update-Mar. 27, 2020


A safe and healthy learning environment remains a top priority at PCS. I understand that there may be many concerns about the closure of buildings for classes and activities, along with the corresponding lack of in-person contact for all of us, including students, parents, staff members, and administrators. I believe that we are a resilient community with residents that are uniting to support one another. This situation will make us even stronger together. I also believe we will learn from this and become better educators and partners in education with our community.

I am confident that many of you still see numerous COVID-19 updates from Nebraska Department of Education (NDE) Commissioner Dr. Matt Blomstedt, Governor Ricketts, various health professionals, and organizations such as the Sarpy/Cass Health Department. It might be easy to become lost in the sea of information that is provided to us on a daily basis.

Therefore, I want to assure you that our dedicated professionals have been working diligently on implementing our remote learning plans. I am proud of our educators that have developed meaningful plans to continue learning outside of our buildings.

Our mission statement is working in partnership to ensure academic achievement, responsible behavior, and civic engagement. The collaboration that has taken place with our children and families from our early childhood center, elementary school, middle school, and high school is truly remarkable, whether it be obtaining classroom materials, band instruments, medication, technological devices, or food. We are building even stronger partnerships that reflect the essence of our mission!

Remote Learning Timeline

So, what do we know about the timeline for remote learning? Our school buildings at PCS are closed for classes and activities until further notice. We are continually reviewing information available to us regarding COVID-19.

In a letter dated March 23, 2020 that is posted on the NDE website, Commissioner Dr. Matt Blomstedt recommends that schools be prepared to operate in an alternate learning environment throughout the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. In response to a directed health measure order (DHMO) from Nebraska Chief Medical Officer/Director of Public Health Dr. Gary Anthone dated March 19, 2020, Governor Ricketts issued a press release noting that schools in Cass, Douglas, Sarpy, and Washington counties were directed to operate without student in their buildings through April 30, 2020. Subsequently, on March 25, 2020, Nebraska School Activities Association (NSAA) Executive Director Jay Bellar released a message that all NSAA activity practices and competitions are suspended through May 1. It is my understanding that they plan to periodically review the status of these items.

Due to the great leadership of our Board of Education, administrators, teachers, and non-certified staff members, I believe we are in a great position to continue learning in a remote environment for the foreseeable future. We will continually review and consider information from many sources including, but not necessarily limited to, the Sarpy/Cass Health Department, the Department of Health and Human Services, the Centers for Disease Control, and Nebraska officials.

At the present time, we will continue with our remote learning plans and strive to maintain continuity of learning for all of our students. I assure you that our dedicated professionals are working diligently to implement learning plans for our students from all of our buildings. We will continue to review the plans and update them, as needed, for our students. Please be patient with our dedicated professionals. If you have questions or comments about the remote learning plans for your children, please contact the building principals where your children attend school.

Wi-Fi Access

This is a friendly reminder that if you do not have internet access at home, Charter is offering free Spectrum broadband and Wi-Fi access for 60 days to households with K-12 and/or college students who do not already have a Spectrum broadband subscription at any service level up to 100 Mbps. They state installation fees will be waived for new student households. Call 1-844-488-8395 to enroll or for more information.

Education Questions

We understand that there may still be many unanswered questions regarding credits for seniors, graduation, grades, and other matters. We are in the process of developing answers to those questions, based on feedback from the Nebraska Department of Education and the United States Department of Education. However, we want to be thoughtful and reflective in our approach, based on the availability of information that might change rapidly on any given day. Your patience and understanding will be greatly appreciated.

Help Prevent the Spread of COVID-19

What can we do right now? All of us can help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and “flatten the curve.” Please go to the page on our website at and stay informed about COVID-19 and how to protect yourself, your family, and others.

Families in Need of Assistance

The Plattsmouth Community Schools and OPAA! are providing Grab-N-Go breakfasts and lunches at no charge for any child in a household from birth to age 18 regardless of income. Meals are being distributed by the loading dock in the staff parking lot at Plattsmouth High School through Mon., Mar. 30, 2020. The address is 1916 Old Hwy. 34. Five breakfasts and five lunches are distributed per child. It is a drive-thru service each of the identified days from 6:30 AM to 9:00 AM, 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM, and 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM.

However, Lund-Ross Constructors plans to start mobilizing at Plattsmouth High School for construction of our new skilled and technical sciences building addition. Therefore, starting Mon, Apr. 6, 2020, the food will be distributed at the same times and in the same drive-thru format at Plattsmouth Middle School. The address is 1724 8th Ave. Simply drive into the parking lot like you would to pick up a child from school, continue around the loop, and stop near door #19 (by the dumpster) and indicate how many children ages 0-18 are in your household. Someone will bring the food to your vehicle.

To help us get an accurate meal count, if you need food assistance, please complete the survey link that remains open at ( If you are unable to complete the survey online, please call 402-296-3361 and provide the necessary information.

In addition, our school social workers are continuing with food distribution through our backpack program that was in place before the COVID-19 emergency. They are also working with community partners to identify resources for families in need of assistance.

If you or someone you know needs assistance with water, food, or other supplies, please contact the school social worker at the building where your child attends school.

Coping with COVID-19

COVID-19 has been referred to as the novel coronavirus. According to Merriam-Webster, novel refers to something new and not resembling something that is formerly known or used. So, it seems reasonable that someone might find it challenging to cope with COVID-19. Click HERE to download and read the March 22, 2020 message from our school social workers that includes tips for coping with COVID-19.


I intend to provide weekly updates throughout the time that our buildings are closed to classes and activities regarding COVID-19. We have a resilient community with residents that continue to unite and support one another. I am confident that this situation will make us even stronger together. We will get through this together, but it will take some time and patience. Thank you for your support of our students, staff members, families, Board members, and our entire community. Until the next update, we shall remain #PLATTSMOUTHSTRONG!

Superintendent Dr. Richard E. Hasty
