Now that school has started, we expect there to be positive COVID-19 cases among our students and staff. Even if students or staff test negative, they may be quarantined for a certain period of time due to exposure. Our COVID-19 Response Plan For Fall news article has been updated with a link to ACTIVE POSITIVE cases by building as we are notified by parents, staff, and/or the health department. Please DO NOT panic if your child comes home with packets of work, as many staff members are creating such work just in case.

    As previously noted in our COVID-19 Response Plan For Fall, there is the potential for building or district closure due to staffing shortages or a large percentage of students testing positive for COVID-19. Likewise, transportation plans could be altered or delayed due to driver shortages. Please be sure your family has contingency plans should a building or the district have to close due to staffing shortages or outbreaks. 


    Please remember, a staff member or student out of school does not necessarily mean their absence reflects a positive case of COVID-19. Thank you for your continued patience and understanding.  

Close alert

Registration Information

Last Updated: 6/6/2019 4:03 PM




Children living in the Sidney City School district who are between the ages of 3 and 5 who are determined eligible for special education services through a multi-factored evaluation process receive preschool services free of charge. We welcome all children with disabilities. Transportation is provided according to the child’s IEP.


In addition, we offer the preschool opportunity for typically developing children. Typically developing children can attend for a monthly fee and parents are required to provide transportation. Registration for the next school year will begin in March. Openings are limited and acceptance of typical children will be on a first come, first served basis with completed online registration and paid registration fee - there is no residential requirement for typically developing children.  


Our program does not discriminate in any way on the basis of race, religion, ethnicity, or socio-economic status.




Every child attending preschool must complete our online registration using Final Forms.


Additionally, initial registration requires the following pieces of information for permanent records:

  • Child’s Birth Certificate
