Sheridan County school district applies for COVID-19 stipend to thank faculty, staff

From The Sheridan Press and the Wyoming News Exchange

SHERIDAN (WNE) — The Sheridan County School District 3 Board of Trustees is looking to thank its staff for the extra work they took on while following COVID-19 measures.

Trustees discussed Wednesday an application they had put in for a COVID stipend through the state. The one-time stipend would give 10-month employees $2,000, year-round employees $2,500, the new hire for the district $500, bus drivers $1,000 and coaches $100.

The stipend will cost $73,930.

“I know our staff has worked hard. We did temperatures before school and at lunch for a year and a half,” SCSD3 Superintendent Boyd Brown said. “We had a lot of extra stuff our staff members had to do. All our maintenance folks with the rounds that they had to do to make sure we’re sterilizing everything and our bus drivers making sure that when we had our kids wear masks, they were wearing masks.”

“So it’s an opportunity to tell them thank you for the work they did,” he added.
