  • New Full-Day UPK Available

    The Orchard Park Central School District is pleased to announce we are re-opening UPK registration because there has been increased funding to support Universal Pre-Kindergarten in New York State. The state has provided funding for a number of full-day Universal Pre-Kindergarten spots in addition to the 100 half-day spots that were available originally. The Orchard Park Central School District strives to maximize our grant funding opportunities, and to support families as much as possible. If you are interested in either the half-day or full-day UPK program please visit www.opschools.org/upk to complete the registration process before May 21st. Applications can be completed online this year in an effort to minimize person to person contact. If you have already completed the application process you will receive an email with information about how to proceed.

  • Studio in Art Students Create Masked Self-Portrait Collages

    Ms. Kelley, high school art teacher, tweaked her first Studio in Art project of the school year which would normally be a self-portrait collage. Instead the students created COVID-19 mask self-portrait collages to reflect the fact that we are all experiencing a global pandemic. The students chose magazine items that reflected their personality and collaged them to create a COVID-19 mask. Ms. Kelley teaches Studio in Art at the Orchard Park High School.
