About Omaha South High School

The History:

The Performing Arts area of the building was recently remodeled.

The Haunting:

"Gus", once a janitor for Omaha South High School purportedly died in the "Rat Room" while obtaining provisions for students and faculty during a tornado (or perhasp following a tornado??? were the students and faculty perhaps trapped???). Gus now is reported to be roaming the Performing Arts section of the building, opening doors and leaving lights on. He also blamed for "messing up lines, cues, entrances, etc." during performances.


Schools are often reported as sites of paranormal activity. Interestingly, janitors are very frequently involved in the reports in some way. This report had a few "holes" in that the actual report claims that there was a tornado DRILL and that "Gus" had gone to get provisions (food, supplies, etc.) because he "thought it was going to be awhile". During a tornado DRILL, this would hardly be necessary.

if Omaha South High is "hanuted"

that may explain why their school's alumni assocation headquarters are miles away from the school they claim to be reprsenting

Omaha South High alumni HQ is near 108th and Q street

molst alumni groups are not located at the schools they represent. Because they are not technically in the school, most likely the president of the assoc lives at that address

Could Gus also be responsible for the strange smoke emanating from the Performing Arts restrooms?

After reading up on this we have tried to get access on a weeknight in the summer. No luck there but being as I have attended the school in the summer and roamed the hallways after hours even though i live not to far away from the school. I found out that these claims are faulty i have debunked them all and in the case of the lights going on and off by themselves its an old school and has power shorteges.

I go to South and have been on the stage and performing arts area a lot.Gus is just like a school superstition for the performing arts students.You are supposed to Gus if he will please not mess you up.All of us performing arts students have a lot of superstitions.Gus is apparently not the only ghost though.If you go down into the catacombs of the school, which you can get through, through the dance studio, go through the boys dressing room and through a door you can get into the catacombs.Its supposed to be really creepy down there with all this weird stuff down there not just the janitor stuff.Apparently a girl drowned or something in the pool or something like that.And a guy supposebly threw himself off the roof after being regected, or through one of the art room windows.
