A total solar eclipse is a rare and spectacular event. On average, one happens somewhere on the Earth once every 1.5 years and only 21 solar eclipses have crossed the lower 48 in the entire history of the United States. Sidney, Ohio is lucky enough to be within the path of totality for the Great North American Eclipse on Monday, April 8, 2024. 

Sidney Athletic Boosters will be selling parking for cars and RVs for eclipse enthusiasts to witness this spectacular event. Our student-athletes and family members will be working to give viewers a good experience. Parking on the Sidney City Schools school and athletic campus boasts 1,200 paved parking spaces and 100 acres of green space.

Celebrating School Board Recognition Month is one way to say thanks for all they do.”

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 SidneyCitySchools.org 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.
