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.

News Releases

News releases are sent to all print and electronic news outlets and posted on our website to share the progress, mission, and successes of our students, teachers, and staff.

District Newsletter

The Jacket Journal, a district-wide newsletter is distributed to all 13,000 residences within the Sidney City School district to present information to parents, students, staff, and the community. The Jacket Journal is published and distributed 3-4 times a year by Sidney City Schools for the purpose of keeping district residents informed.

The Jacket Journal is also published online at Issuu.com - issuu.com/sidneyjacketjournal

Social Media

District social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram provide an additional medium to communicate with the community. We would love for you to connect with us!



Sidney City Schools utilizes SchoolMessenger for emergency and general notifications. SchoolMessenger has an app and website parents/students can log into to listen to messages. Visit https://go.schoolmessenger.com/#/home to log in or link to download the app. You will need the email or one of the phone numbers linked to your child to log in. Once your account is setup, you may adjust which contacts receive which types of communications. 


The district website is a means to provide as much information to parents and community members as possible. We make every attempt to ensure all of the information is current and correct. Please let us know if you have any suggestions for improving it.
