    Richland County Housing has asked us to reach out to parents dropping off and picking up students on 11th Avenue.

    Please do not use the parking lot behind their office as a drive-through or parking lot. This is for Richland County Housing residents only.

    New students to the district are asked to bring their

    birth certificate, shot record, and phone number of the school previously attended.

    Today is Thursday, November 30, 2023. We hope you have a great day!


  • My name is Sharri Vandall. I am starting my fourth year as West Side Principal. I have been married for
    24 years, have four children, and three grandchildren. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my
    family, working in my yard, going to the lake, crafting, floating the river, sky diving, zip lip lining, river
    rafting, and taking walks.

    I have been involved in education for 27 years. In that time, I have had many roles: non-instructional
    aide, special education paraprofessional, classroom teacher, instructional coach, and principal. I believe
    that all students can learn and succeed. My hope for your child is that they become a life long learner,
    persevere when things are difficult, and build a stamina for learning. All students have strengths, as a
    staff we hope to foster these strengths. As the instructional leader at West Side, I believe in
    transparency. I want you to be apart of your child’s education, after all, you were your child’s first
    teacher. At West Side we strive to be kind to one another.

    The educational mission of Sidney Public Schools and West Side is to foster a safe and supportive
    environment that cultivates excellence in learning through citizenship, self-discipline, motivation, and
    positive social attitudes. Cooperation among the school, the home, and the community provides
    students with the knowledge and skills necessary for successful lives and careers.

    I believe that it takes a village to raise a child. I want you to be involved in your child’s education. I
    invite you to come and visit West Side. It is my mission to have parents in our school. Throughout the
    year we will have many activities for you and your student. Please come see the great things we are
    doing at West Side.

    At West Side we have school wide expectations for our students:

    Be Safe

    Be Responsible

    Be Respectful

    Be a Learner

    Have a great school year! Please be a part of your child’s education. We are glad that you are part of
    the West Side family!

    Sharri Vandall, West Side Principal
