Food and Drinks

All Seneca scholars receive free breakfast and lunch.

Lunchroom Etiquette

The RedHawk Family shares the cafeteria and each scholar is expected to practice general rules of good behavior.  Simple rules of courteous behavior that make the lunchroom pleasant and relaxed include:

  • Observing good dining room standards at the table
  • Leaving the table and the surrounding area clean and orderly
  • Putting trash in the proper container
  • Remaining seated until the bell or a cafeteria supervisor dismisses your table

Drink Containers

Drinks brought in from outside of school must be sealed and unopened.  Drinks from a restaurant, open cans, and water bottles are not permitted.  These are to be disposed of prior to entering the school building.

Restaurant Food Restrictions

Due to Federal Guidelines, scholars cannot order or have outside food delivered to the school during school hours (7:40 a.m. – 2:20 p.m.) – even by a parent.  If a club or activity plans a special event involving outside food orders, this must be approved with the administration prior to the order being placed.  At no time should a scholar leave school grounds during the day to pick up food items.

Permissions and Authorizations

Once scholars arrive at school, they are not permitted to leave without permission.  See Behavior Expectations for information about consequences.

Authorizations to Give Medicine

Scholars are not permitted to carry medication at school, neither prescription or non-prescription.  Medication should be given at home when possible.  If your child needs to take medication during the school day, we must have a signed affidavit on file giving your permission for us to do so.  The medicine must be in its original container with a current prescription label attached.  Non-prescription medicine must be in its original container, also.  You may pick up an Authorization to Give Medicine Form from the nurse's office.  You will then return this form and the medication to the nurse's office for dispensing.  Unused medicine should be picked up by the parent when no longer needed.  Any medications not picked up before summer break will be destroyed by the nurse.

Permission to Attend School Events

A Seneca scholar requesting to bring a guest to an event such as a school dance or senior activity who is not a current Seneca scholar must have an approval form completed before purchasing a guest ticket.  The minimum grade level for guests is 9th grade and 12th grade is the maximum.  For Senior Prom, guests not currently enrolled in school must have a high school diploma and be 20 years old or under – these guests are subject to a background check.  Guest identifications must be shown for admission.  All guests must be approved by a Seneca principal and/or assistant principal before an event ticket may be purchased.  Refunds for unapproved guests are not granted.
