Important Notice about South Seneca Tax Bills: School Property tax bills were sent by our vendor with a printed error. If you paid your school tax bill before 10/30/20, disregard this notice. For those tax payers whose payments are due by 11/30/20, the amount listed on the tax bill does not include the 3% penalty. This penalty amount would still be due if paid after 10/31/20. Anyone who has not paid their bill by October 31 will receive a new bill with the corrected amount due. Go to www.taxlookup.net for the correct amount after 10/31/20 or call 315-539-1563 to receive a corrected bill.

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.
