Welcome to Seneca Intermediate School
On behalf of the entire faculty and staff at Seneca Intermediate School, I want to welcome you to the 2019-20 school year. Our faculty and staff are looking forward to another great year at Seneca Intermediate School. Our goal and focus continue to be to provide many opportunities for your child that go beyond teaching specific academic content. We want students to respect one another, be responsible, show initiative, set and meet goals, become involved in school events, understand and relate to various cultures, and be a friend to all. By working together, we can accomplish this!
If you have driven by our campus, I am sure that you have seen all of the construction that has been occurring. Sadly, the new Seneca Office Complex will not be ready until early October. In the meantime, our office is located in Room 110, which is the first room in the music wing. Please follow the signs that lead to our office. The delay will certainly be worth it, as the new entrance and office are a great addition to our campus.
Welcome Back Picnic
I would like to personally invite you to our Welcome Back Picnic on August 28 from 5 to 6:30 p.m. This is a great night to meet your teachers, visit various informational booths, check out the temporary office, and tour the campus. Mr. Breidenstein has arranged to have a special treat for dinner. Come and check it out!
First Day of School
The first day of school is Tuesday, September 3. The school hours are 7:35 a.m. to 2:50 p.m.
Morning Drop Off/Breakfast
Please do not drop off your child before 7 a.m. There will not be supervision until that time and the doors will not be opened. Breakfast is served starting at 7 a.m.
Students will be dismissed at approximately 2:50 p.m. If you need to make a bus/pickup change, please send a note in with your child or contact the office before 1 p.m. at (716) 945-5140 ext. 5464.
Picking Your Child Up During the School Day
Prior to the new Seneca Office being opened, you must go to the High School entrance to sign out and pick up your child. When signing out your child, you must present identification. Once your child is signed out, they will be called to the sign out area.
Once the new office is open, you may enter the Seneca Office off of Fern Avenue to sign out and pick up your child.
Due to the generosity of our Board of Education you do not need to purchase school supplies for your child. We also have a limited supply of backpacks if you need one, contact the office at (716) 945-5140 ext. 5464.
Attendance is an essential component to a student’s academic success. Please make sure your child attends school daily on time. As a parent or guardian, you can prepare your child for a lifetime of success by making regular school attendance a priority. If your child is absent from school, please call our attendance officer at (716) 945-5140 ext. 5243. When your child returns to school, please send in an excuse.
As I begin my second year as the Interim Principal, it remains an honor and privilege to work with you. I look forward to seeing you at the picnic and during the school year. I want to thank you for making Seneca Intermediate School the great school that it is!
