Sex Offender Registry
The safety of the students attending school is very important to Heartland Community Schools. School employees, parents, and students should be aware of dangers posed by sex offenders living within the school district, and should be vigilant in providing protection against these dangers.
The Nebraska Legislature has enacted the Nebraska Sex Offender Registration Act. The Act requires sex offenders to register with the local county sheriff where they reside. This registry may be searched by clicking the following link: Nebraska State Patrol Sex Offender Registry
The recipient of this information should be aware that there is a prohibition against using the information for any retaliatory purpose against the sex offender, the offender’s family, or the offender’s employer.
The school does not generally permit registered sex offenders onto school grounds, at any school sponsored activity, or on any property under the control of the school district. The superintendent or his/her designee may notify sex offenders of this protocol and may grant limited permission to attend certain activities on a case-by-case basis, particularly if that offender is a parent of a current student.
