  • Inclement Weather Procedures

    At this time of year it is very important to be aware of our inclement weather procedures. The decision to close schools is not an easy one to make and often the decision needs to be made quickly and decisively and always in the best interest for the continued safety of our students and staff. We begin the decision process at 4 a.m. or sooner, depending on the weather and the forecast. With more than fifty other locations that we transport students to (BOCES, private schools, special programs), a delayed start is usually not an option for a district our size. Once the decision is made to close, radio and television stations are contacted, the district’s webpage is updated and the iConnect notification is sent out. I would ask that parents take a few moments to sign into the Parent Portal and review their contact information to make sure that it’s current. Please visit https://powerschool.opschools.org for more information.

  • Universal Pre-Kindergarten

    Applications for Universal Pre-Kindergarten are currently being accepted for the 2018-2019 school year. In order to participate in the UPK program children must reside in the Orchard Park Central School District attendance area, and be four years old by December 1st of the year they start the program. The Orchard Park Central School District is able to offer the Universal Pre-Kindergarten program through a grant provided by the New York State Education Department. This grant covers the cost of the program, but does not cover transportation. It is the responsibility of each family to transport their child to the Universal Pre-Kindergarten site. There are a designated number of Universal Pre-Kindergarten spots available. If more apply than there are openings, there will be a “lottery” to determine who will be able to attend. Children are randomly selected for the program. Selection is not based on academic or economic need. All children are equally eligible for participation. The Orchard Park UPK program is not housed in the Orchard Park Elementary School buildings. The Orchard Park Central School District partners with local preschools as community-based preschool UPK sites. Families who apply for Orchard Park’s UPK program will be asked to provide their preschool site preference. We attempt to accommodate families’ first or second choice whenever possible. UPK applications are due by March 30, 2018. The following documents are required when submitting your UPK application: completed registration form, completed Home Language Questionnaire, proof of residency (two recent, valid forms are necessary), Parent/Guardian driver’s license, birth certificate, and vaccination records for your child. These forms may be downloaded from the district’s website (www.opschools.org/upk), picked up at the Central Registrar’s office at the Orchard Park Central School District Offices, 2240 Southwestern Blvd., West Seneca, or mailed to you upon request. Please call (

  • Eggert Student Goes Above and Beyond for Holiday Food Drive

    Eggert Elementary third grader Ava Rojek went above and beyond to collect food for Eggert’s Holiday Food Drive held in November. With the help of her mother, Ava created a video that was uploaded to social media asking for donations. She also wrote a letter on the back of the donation flyer. She then dropped off copies of that letter to all her neighbors. Within a week Ava collected over 420 donations of non-perishable items for Eggert’s Food Drive.
