  • 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 (

  • South Davis Creates Music Video in Honor of Rachel's Challenge

    South Davis Elementary came together to make a music video in honor of Rachel’s Challenge. Fifth grade students starred in the video but the entire school was a part of this exciting community building activity. The South Davis Bullying Prevention Coordinating Committee was looking for an extra special way to bring the school together as a part of Rachel's Challenge. The committee decided that a lip dub music video to the song “Give Love” was the way to go! Fifth grade students at South Davis Elementary rehearsed twice a week for a several weeks to prepare for their lip dub debut. On the day of the event, the entire South Davis population came together for the video. The lip dub experience was an incredible community building activity. Please click the link below or follow @southdavisk5 on Twitter to enjoy watching South Davis start a "Chain Reaction of Kindness" when they "Give Love" in their first ever lip dub music video! https://youtu.be/7ezzDOEEoE4
