PUBLIC NOTICE: September 6, 2021 As we begin our 2021-22 school year, South Seneca will continue to report any new confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the school community. This week, three staff members—two from the Middle-High School and one from the Elementary School—are finishing their quarantine periods after recently testing positive. We are also aware of one high school student who has tested positive and is awaiting the end of the quarantine period to return. It is likely that the beginning of school will also reveal the status of others who are either confirmed positive or are absent due to quarantine as a close contact. The district will be working closely with the Seneca County Health Department to report each new case, and any impact of future quarantines. With new flow charts for close contact determination, and a universal mask mandate in schools statewide, we do expect that those impacts will remain minimal, and programs should remain substantially open this year. As always, we continue to urge our school community to do everything possible to mitigate the spread of viruses. Working together, we can minimize illnesses and keep our schools up and running for the full year in 2021-22. Thank you!
Celebrating the many successes of our community this Labor Day! Together, we shape the future. #ForeverFalcons
