October 4: This month the State Education Department has alerted school districts around the state of a pattern of callers making threats intended only to disrupt school operations. This morning we received our own voicemail of someone sounding like a very young girl, laughing with friends, to say they would “shoot up” the “Mickey Mouse House.” The Seneca County Sheriff’s Office is tracing the number of the caller, and advises us that this was an entirely non-credible threat to school safety. We urge parents to speak to your children about making any kind of statement in today’s climate, even if intended to be funny, that relates to violence in any form. These statements can bring serious consequences to those making them, and take up valuable law enforcement and school personnel time to process.
The topographic maps of NYS the 4th grade at #SouthSenecaES were working yesterday got a coat of paint and a map key today! The kids really enjoyed seeing our state come to life.
Public Notice September 30: This morning we learned that several high school students reported that a classmate told them they had a gun in their car at school. Upon investigation of the car and interviews with both the student and the parents of the student, it was determined this statement was not true. Our School Resource Officer led much of this investigation. We are always grateful that students bring these reports to adults in the building so they can be investigated. This student understands that even making a statement like this is considered a serious disruption to the school environment.
On Tuesday, 10/4, there will be a COVID-19 vaccine clinic held at the Middle/High School that is open to all ages, 6 months and up. This is also the same day as the Foodlink Food Truck! See the flyer for more information.
4th grade ELA and social studies at #SouthSenecaES combined forces this week to create topographic maps (and the dough for them)! Both curriculums have an emphasis on NYS history, so the overlap made perfect sense...and made for a fun lesson!
Come enjoy a family friendly night at the Middle/High School!
Public Notice September 28, 11am: Ambulance at MSHS in Ovid is responding as a precaution for an individual medical issue in the building. We agreed in the spring that this type of notice would go out in these kinds of situations so the community doesn't need to speculate about a potential emergency.
There was a beautiful rainbow over #SouthSenecaES this morning!
