At its September 16 meeting, the South Seneca Board of Education voted not to participate in the fall athletics season this year, in the interests of the health and safety of our students. The board will revisit participation in a winter season at its November meeting.
The classroom doesn't always have to be a classroom :)
Please note: the scheduled early release day has been MOVED to Wednesday, September 23
To comply with the New York State mandate that we do a daily screener for those in the building, South Seneca has partnered with Cayuga Health to make use of their screener tool. Families of students will receive an email from the system directing them to a brief registration process. After that, you will receive an email each day with a unique link to use to complete the screener. Depending on your answers to the 6 daily health screening questions, you get a “green” or “red” status. Green means your child is clear to come in. For more information click this link: https://www.southseneca.org/article/300698?org=south-seneca
Our online health screening process will launch soon. Anyone seeking entry to a school building or school bus will need to complete and pass our online screening process prior to entry. Please ensure that the school has an email address on file for each family so we can contact you. Families will need a way to take students’ temperatures at home, we can provide thermometers to families who need them. Please contact the school for help.
Elementary School families can sign up to receive a free smart thermometer. Text FLUENCYSCHOOL to 900900 to be placed on the waitlist.
Family Navigators have created a video honoring the hard decisions families are making. We know that families are feeling stressed, uncertain, disappointed, and any other host of feelings. View the short video here: https://youtu.be/Yo6s6tfjS-U
