The weekly rates for the Sidney City Schools Latchkey are as follows: full-time rate is $65/week, each additional child is $40/week; part-time rate is $43/week, each additional child is $25/week. 


Latchkey registration is now open and forms can be downloaded here. Registration forms are also available at each elementary school. The registration deadline is May 18, 2018. Anyone registering beyond this date should contact the Sidney City Schools Board of Education office at 937-497-2200. There is a $20 non-refundable registration fee per family. Forms and the $20 registration fee can be returned to the child's school or mailed to Sidney City Schools, C/O Brooke Gessler, 750 S. Fourth Avenue, Sidney OH 45365. 


Upon registering, families will receive more information regarding the Latchkey calendar, fees and payment, inclement weather, late pick-up, policies and more. 

It is the district's hope to have enough participants for each elementary school to be its own site. (SMS 5th grade would be linked to Emerson). However, being that this is a new service, it is possible there will only be two latchkey sites; in that case, the district would transport students to and from the latchkey site and their school of attendance.
