SHIDLER SCHOOLS’ MASK MANDATE

Starting on January 18th, Shidler Schools began following these new guidelines for all staff and for students in grades 3-12.

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.
NEWLY ESTABLISHED SCHOLARSHIP
ETTER SCHOLARSHIP FOR FUTURE TEACHERS
Shidler alum, Dr. Delores Etter, and husband Jerry continue their generous giving to support Shidler Schools, its students and employees. The Etters have now established a FUTURE TEACHER SCHOLARSHIP aimed to help current Shidler Teacher Assistants become Certified Teachers. Recognizing that Oklahoma is in the midst of a severe teacher shortage, the Etters decided to provide financial help to all current Shidler Teacher Assistants who aspire to become teachers realize their dreams. In 2020-21, Four (4) Shidler Teacher Assistants will receive from the Etters $200/credit hour to pay for their college classes. 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!
This space will be used to provide Covid-19 information.

This generous donation will be used to support and pay for student scholarships, technology improvements, teacher training, expenses for qualifying students to take college classes while still in high school through the concurrent enrollment program at Northern Oklahoma College, and to promote STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) Education. We are deeply appreciative for this incredible gift and for the many other ways that Enel supports Shidler Schools and our broader community.
