One of our goals is to teach emotion identification, self-regulation, and how to embrace the uniqueness of those around us. Preschool is about learning social skills through play.

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.

Logo for Stay Safe. Speak Up! on yellow background

Sidney City Schools is committed to the safety and well-being of our students and school community. That’s why we continue to take important steps to enhance personal safety for our students and staff and provide a positive learning environment for all students.

Our district continues to use the Stay Safe. Speak Up! Student Safety Reporting System (powered by PublicSchoolWORKS). Stay Safe. Speak Up! is a comprehensive reporting tool that allows students, parents, and staff to submit safety concerns to school officials. 

Concerns can be submitted in three ways:

  1. Mobile App. Download the Stay Safe. Speak Up! mobile app and enter our unique District Code to submit reports directly from your smartphone. District Code: SIDNEY
    Find the app in the App Store or the Google Play Store by searching "Stay Safe Speak Up."

  2. Phone. Call 1-866-547-8362 to leave a voice message or speak with a trained, live attendant. Attendants can initiate contact with various national crisis hotlines if a student needs help in dealing with a personal emergency.

  3. Online. Click on the STAY SAFE. SPEAK UP! button (siren icon) on the homepage of every school website on to access the online form from a desktop computer or laptop. You can also find this link in various accessible places on the website. You can also use the search tool by clicking on the magnifying glass in the Menu and searching "Stay Safe. Speak Up!"

Students, staff, and families can easily report tips on bullying, harassment, drugs, weapons, thoughts of suicide, or any other concern that may jeopardize the safety of students, employees, or school property.
