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

Hall of Honor

Last Updated: 10/22/2018 3:27 PM

The Hall of Honor was the brainchild of future inductee Lew Blackford (SHS 1959) during his term as Superintendent of Schools. By 1993 he had both a committee and plan in place to begin honoring graduates, employees, and supporters who had made a profound positive difference in the operation and/or image of the Sidney City Schools since their founding in the mid-1800's.


In the spring of 1994, the Hall moved quickly and decisively to induct its first ten members. As of today, more than 125 people have received Sidney City School's highest honor of induction into the Hall of Honor.

The Hall of Honor Committee is guided by a set of by-laws that has evolved over time, and been adjusted to current needs and circumstances. However, the primary guiding force behind this activity is its Mission Statement: "The purpose will be to recognize and honor those persons who through their performance and achievements reflect credit on the Sidney City Schools so that present-day students may find identity with the past and establish goals for the future. The Hall of Honor will reinforce and enhance a positive image of the Sidney City Schools both inside and outside the district, as it also strives to foster an increased sense of pride among students, faculty, staff, alumni, and residents."


Selection criteria are as follows:

For graduates of Sidney High School:
· 10 years since graduation
· Significant or outstanding achievement or contribution in a vocational field, community service, and/or philanthropic endeavor


For former staff and others:
· Five years since employment with Sidney City Schools
· Extraordinary service to Sidney City Schools
