To the Sidney Community
After consultation with COVID-19 Unified Command, it has been determined that Sidney Public Schools along with all other schools in the Nebraska Panhandle will be closed for the next two weeks. This decision will be reevaluated on Friday, March 27, 2020, with parents and families updated accordingly and extended as needed. This is a precautionary measure, there are currently no cases in the Panhandle. The State of Nebraska has elevated the risk assessment, and Nebraskans, in general, maybe at the same risk as travelers from other areas in the nation and other parts of the world. School Superintendents met with Unified Command tonight and agreed this action would help prevent exposure to our area to flatten the curve and decrease the spread of disease.
We are very sorry for the late notice and we will update you all with more information as soon as possible.
