Omaha Virtual School (OVS) is a full-time, tuition-free, program within Omaha Public Schools. Instruction is delivered through a blended learning environment, combining the benefits of the virtual and traditional classrooms.  Blended learning enhances online learning with opportunities for labs, guest speakers, field trips, and other face-to-face cooperative learning.  

The format of our program enables parents to be actively involved and allows students to take ownership of their learning.  Students may work quickly through the areas they understand, take their time in areas that need extra attention, and put an emphasis on subjects that interest them most. 

Director of Omaha Virtual School, Wendy Loewenstein, joined Mike Hogan in a socially distanced "Live & Local" interview to discuss the school and to invite everyone to the informational virtual sessions on June 10th and July 8th.  you can join either one of those sessions using the links below.

Omaha Mayor Jean Stothert is apologizing to a woman she insulted in a Facebook comment and will meet with her later this week.   Soyeon Sohn had commented earlier this week on a public post about Stothert's emergency order and called the mayor a coward. Stothert replied to the woman and called her a coward who doesn't list her name and who hides behind symbols.  Sohn uses the Korean spelling of her name on Facebook, and Stothert has apologized and admitted to not recognizing the symbols as Korean letters.

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Police say a 63-year-old Lincoln woman was sweet-talked out of $162,000 by someone she met on social media.

Officer Angela Sands said Wednesday the person or people who communicated with the woman said his name was Ethan and that he worked on a boat in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. He made several requests for money, including $3,000 for internet service, $30,000 for a vacation and $50,000 for a plane ticket.
