The Oklahoma Legislature passed a new law that requires school calendars to have a minumim of 165 days. The calendar linked above is Shidler’s official school calendar for the 2022-2023 school year. Please note that we will be in school on Fridays during the Fall Semester then return to a 4-Day school schedule from January-May. Also, please note that the dismissal time from school beginning next year will be 3:03 pm instead of the current 3:45 pm dismissal time. Shortening the length of each school day and adding total number of contact days are necessary for us to comply with the law.
On March 7, 2022 Enel Green Power, our Wind Farm Friends, donated an additional $25,000 to Shidler Public Schools. Over the past 6 years, Enel has donated more than $100,000 for student scholarships, technology devices for students and teachers, teacher training, expenses for qualifying students to take college-level classes while still in high school, and resources to support STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) Education. We sincerely appreciate this incredible monetary gift and for the many other ways that Enel supports Shidler Schools and our students.
Dr. Delores and Jerry Etter give $2,500/year scholarships to every graduating senior of Shidler High School who desires to continue their education or receive specialized training beyond high school. EVERY Shidler Graduate qualifies to receive the scholarship award for up to 4 years + graduate school in college. Since starting the scholarship in 2019, the Etters have given $73,500 to Shidler High School Graduates to help them pursue careers in nursing, engineering, computer science technology, business, education, military service, zoology, biblical justice, pipeline integrity, firefighting, radiologic technology, and optometry. Seventeen (17) different students have received scholarship funds since inception in 2019. On behalf of all past, current, and future recipients: “Thank you Dr. Etter and Jerry.”
FUTURE TEACHER SCHOLARSHIPS:
Recognizing that Oklahoma is in the midst of a severe teacher shortage and seeking ways to help Shidler Public Schools bring new teachers into the profession, the Etters started a Future Teacher Scholarship (FTS). The FTS is available to all teacher assistants employed by Shidler Public Schools who aspire to become teachers. Since 2020, four (4) Shidler Teacher Assistants have received $20,600 from the Etters to pay for college coursework aimed at helping them become teachers. The scholarships are renewable each year until a teaching degree is obtained. Recipients are eligible to receive up to $8,000 per year in total financial support though this scholarship. While there is no requirement for scholarship recipients to teach in Shidler Schools once a teaching degree is earned, it is the School District’s hope that these Future Teachers give first consideration to Shidler Schools when the time comes for them to teach. Thank you once again to Delores and Jerry for all the incredible things you both do to help our School District!

ANNOUNCINGTelehealth Option for Shidler Students and Staff Is Here
Shidler Schools has entered into an agreement with Pawhuska Family Medical Clinic which allows students and school employees to see a doctor and/or nurse while at school using Telehealth Technology. This technology permits doctors in Pawhuska to conduct many routine screenings and diagnoses on students without students having to miss school or wait days to get a doctor’s appointment. Telehealth patients are assured of the same rights of medical privacy during telehealth visits as would be afforded them during in-person doctors’ visits. The program is optional and parents must give permission for their children to be seen by a doctor. Obvious potential benefits are that students can be evaluated by medical professionals without having to miss school or parents miss work to take their children to a doctor. The School encourages all parents to consider signing their children up for this option. To learn more or to sign up, please access the brochure below.
