Great American Eclipse- August 21

The Great American Eclipse is taking place on August 21 (first day of school), between the hours of 1:02pm and 3:51pm. Due to the dangers associated with the viewing the eclipse, Sidney City Schools will adhere to the following guidelines that day:

  • Only students with protective eclipse glasses will be permitted outside with staff supervision to observe the eclipse and the school's code of conduct will be in effect.
  • Parents will have the opportunity to opt out of permitting their child to view this experience by notifying their building principal.
  • Under no circumstance should students be outside (eg. recess) during this time without protective eclipse glasses.
  • Students should be reminded when departing for the day that they should not gaze at the eclipse.

​​​​​​The concern is gazing at the eclipse with a naked eye for a period of time could result in damage to the retina of the eye, and may not show up until "down the road."

Whittier Kindergartner Received Unique Gift Carson Fryman with photo from photographer Doug Pollitt.

Whittier kindergarten students in Ms. Nikki Inman’s class have been discussing professions and careers. Each student had to choose a profession they wanted to do when they grew up. Selections ranged from teacher, fireman, and policeman to military, nurse, doctor and dentist. Students then wrote letters to people in those professions. Those people then wrote letters back. Some of the professionals sent extra goodies with their letters, like toothbrushes or stickers. Carson Fryman uniquely decided he wanted to be a wildlife photographer and received something unique in return.
