COVID-19 RESPONSE PLAN FOR FALL 2020 COVID-19 Response Plan 2020

As we look to start the 2020-2021 school year, the health and safety of students, staff, volunteers, and community are paramount. Sidney City Schools (K-12 and preschool) plans to start school with in-person instruction five days a week beginning September 8, 2020, with the exception of kindergarten, which will run on a staggered start as in years past.  

We believe it is extremely important for the mental and physical well-being of our students that they be in school. The American Academy of Pediatrics strongly advocates that all policy considerations for the coming school year start with the goal of having students physically present in school.


However, given that we have students and/or families with legitimate health concerns, we will offer a remote learning option.

Wilson Health Clinic Opens at Sidney City Schools Wilson Health at Sidney City Schools ribbon cutting ceremony

 There’s a need in Sidney City Schools that is being addressed, according to school superintendent, Bob Humble. “In order for kids to achieve and succeed, they’ve got to be in school,” says Humble. “And one of the biggest barriers is not having quick access to medical care. Students are missing out on valuable learning time because of it and we want to change that.”

Sidney City Schools, in collaboration with Wilson Health, is pleased to open a school-based clinic to serve students, staff, and the community at large.
