FREE MEALS for ALL CHILDREN
Free sack lunches will be offered during remote learning. Lunches will be available from September 14th through September 24th to ALL CHILDREN at designated pickup points every Monday through Thursday. Students who have been asked to self-quarantine should have their meals picked up by a family member.
Shidler Schools is pleased to partner with the Ministerial Alliance to bring meals as close to where our students live as possible. Meals will be prepared by the school and handed out by church members via curb-side pickup at churches in each of our communities as shown below. Special delivery arrangements can be made for families that do not have transportation by calling the school. Pick up sack lunches:
Monday-Thursday from 11:00 am -12:00 pm in any of these church parking lots.
*Shidler United Methodist Church
*Burbank Baptist Church
* Kaw City United Methodist Church
* Webb City Church of God
* Grainola United Methodist Church
...and when you pick up your meals, please thank our church partners who are making this possible.
This space will be used to provide Covid-19 information.
On Saturday, September 12 school administration was notified that one of our middle school students tested positive for Covd-19. School administrators worked with the student’s parent and county health department officials to identify all school employees and all other students who could have possibly been in “close contact” with the student who tested positive. Every person identified as a “close contact” received a personal phone call from a school administrator on the same day that we were notified of the positive case. Close contact individuals were told of their possible exposure and were advised to self-quaratine for 14 days in compliance with CDC and State Health Department requirements. For more informtion about CDC guidelines, click the link below.
Due to the number of individuals required to self-quarantine for 14 days from date of last contact with the positive case, ALL CLASSES for ALL GRADE LEVELS will change from in-person learning to the remote learning packets that were issued to students at time of enrollment this year. IF YOUR CHILD HAS LOST, DID NOT RECEIVE, OR HAS MISPLACED THEIR LEARNING PACKET, PLEASE CALL THE SCHOOL AND WE WILL PROVIDE ANOTHER PACKET.
It continues to be our objective to provide our students and staff as normal a school year as possible with in-person instruction, complete with extra and co-curricular activities. Our plan at this time is to pause in-person instruction for 2 weeks and to resume in-person instruction on Monday, September 28. For the next two weeks all students are to work on their remote learning packets at home.
Updated guidance from the CDC will be our new standard for returning to school or work from a fever. Persons will now be permitted to return to school or work after being temperature-free without aid of fever reducing medication for 24 hours rather than 72 hours.

FALL SOFTBALL 2020:
Our High School Lady Tigers are coached by Matt Holland and we are pleased to welcome Katie Ehrlich as the new Head Junior High Softball Coach. When you have a chance, please thank Coach Holland for the countless hours of time and sweat he devotes to conditioning the field all year round. You do not find many HS fields in the condition that Coach Holland and Coach O’Donnel keep their fields in. It takes a lot of time, work and pride to maintain fields like this and the efforts of both Coach Holland and Coach O'Donnell to field maintenance are appreciated.
Welcome to 2020-21 Tiger Basketball Season. Temperatures will be taken at the door using a no-touch to forehead temperature scanner. Those with a body temperature of 100.4 or greater will not be admitted to the gymnasium. Masks are recommended at basketball games. We want to give our players and coaches the best possible opportunity to play their season through; so please stay home if you are coughing or not feeling well. Spread out as much as you can in the stands and practice good handwashing and hygiene practices.
Thank you for your cooperation!
