HS & JH Roster (coming soon)
Tigers Head Coach is Colby O’Donnell.
Construction Fencing has been installed. The entire area east of the Bias Gym to W.G. Ward Street is fenced off to both vehicular and foot traffic until the new school is completed. During construction of the new high school, parents and other visitors are asked to park and enter through either the north or east entrances of the elementary and high school buildings. Parking is still available for ball games south of the Bias Gym; however, to gain entry into the school for anything other than ball games, persons parking south of the school will be required to walk around the east end of the construction fencing to the east side of the high school.
The elementary and high school principals’ offices will help visitors find their ways to the superintendents’ office as needed. Thank you for your patience and understanding as work to improve our facilities continues.
4-Day Week & Relationship to School Report Cards
Senate Bill 441 passed during the last Oklahoma Legislative Session. This Law requires schools to apply for and be granted a waiver from the state in order to have a 4-Day School Calendar. If the legislature gives final approval during this upcoming legislative session to move forward with the Oklahoma State Department of Education’s rules, this law will cause our school to return to a 5-Day School Calendar in 2021. As it now stands, the state plans to use results from School Report Cards to either grant or deny calendar waivers to schools. Below is a letter written by Shidler School Superintendent, Rick Rogers, to help our parents better understand school report cards and some of the reasons why report cards should not be used to determine our school calendar. Unless the legislature changes their minds about Senate Bill 441, our school will be forced to return to a 5-Day School Calendar in 2021.

Available to ALL Shidler Graduates, starting with Class of 2019
$2,500 per year, renewable for up to four years, up to $10,000 per student
Shidler Alum, Dr. Delores Van Camp Etter and her husband Jerry, have increased the amount and duration of their incentive scholarship. The scholarship is awarded to every graduate of Shidler High School who enrolls and is accepted into any form of educational training beyond high school. 2019 Shidler High School Graduates are eligible to renew scholarships for additional years of eligibility under these new rules. Additionally, the scholarship will be available to 2020 graduates and all other future Shidler Graduating Classes. The scholarship will pay for college or vocational training as well as for military participation. With a belief that that continuing education and training beyond high school can help students secure good paying jobs and enjoy satisfying careers, Dr. Etter is now committing $2,500 per year and up to $10,000 in total award per student when renewed anually for four years of post-secondary education or training. “Education,” she told students, “is your ticket”. She also told students that, “post-secondary education is possible for anyone willing to commit themselves to it.” Dr. Etter went on to tell students that she believes so strongly in the power of continuing education, that she and Jerry were willing to invest in their educational futures. As a school district, Shidler is tremendously thankful to Delores and Jerry for their immense generosity shown by this scholarship and also for the many other times and ways they have supported Shidler Schools and Shidler Students. We are extremely proud of Dr. Etter’s distinguished lifetime accomplishments and are humbled that someone with her experiences and accomplishments would continue to return time and money to Shidler Schools, to a place where her education began.
