Sidney City Schools is pleased to announce that Whittier Early Childhood Center and Sidney City Schools Transportation Department have come up with a plan to expand transportation opportunities to families of preschool students.
“We’ve seen great success at Whittier and know that we have the opportunity to serve more students,” says Beth Abbott, Preschool Director at Whittier. “What we’ve found is that some families are interested in their child attending preschool but just don’t have a way to transport their children to and from Whittier and so we’re looking to remedy that.”
Whittier Early Childhood Center currently works with local childcare providers to transport children to and from those childcare centers and Whittier, which has worked out great. This expansion of transportation would create 4 neighborhood stops around our community. Because the morning session is full for this school year, bussing for the 2023-2024 school year would be limited to afternoon session preschool students only.
“On the school district’s side, we’re limited to just how many students we can transport based on current routes, number of drivers, and time constraints,” says Ron Monroe, Transportation Director. “While we’re not required to bus preschool students, we see the importance of helping families. We think we’ve worked out neighborhood stops that will accommodate a greater number of families, allowing more kids to attend preschool at Whittier Early Childhood Center.”
These locations are Hilltop Apartments, Mystic Apartments, Countryside Apartments, and the corner of Fairmont & Spruce.
Our district is made up of approximately 3,300 students, 6 schools, 200 teachers, and 150 support staff such as aides, custodians, bus drivers, cooks, and secretaries. Each school also has a security officer or SRO and a trained emergency response team for student and staff safety.
Starting as early as fifth and sixth grade, we offer our students a variety of boys, girls, and co-ed sports and provide our students the opportunity to become members and leaders of clubs. Students may also choose to become involved in our highly successful music program by taking band, choir, or orchestra.
Early childhood education lays the groundwork for the development of a lifelong learner. Whittier Early Childhood Center staff strive to support the whole child by providing learning opportunities in all areas of development including social-emotional skills and academic foundations.
Sidney High School offers its students 24 college credit plus and advanced placement courses, allowing students to take and earn credit for college-level courses while staying at Sidney High School. Some students are able to obtain an associate's degree in tandem with their high school diploma.

"Many people play an active role in a student's development inside and outside the classroom. These members include teachers, students, and parents. To be a Yellow Jacket means being part of a big FAMILY, with a common goal to see a student succeed."

"It means being part of something that is trying to make this community better. It means being dedicated to understanding the changing needs of the students I serve and the community I am a part of. Being a Yellow Jacket means that I have a family much larger than the one that into which I was born."
