Incoming Kindergarten students can experience riding on a school bus prior to their first day of school. Orchard Park bus drivers will take students on a short ride and talk to them about school bus safety. Bus rides will be held at the Orchard Park Central School District Transportation Department, 2240 Southwestern Blvd, West Seneca from Tuesday August 13th through Thursday, August 15th. The rides will start each day at 10 a.m. and continue every half hour until 12 p.m. This will be the only opportunity for your child to experience the bus ride prior to the start of the school year. There is no need to sign up. If you have any questions, please contact the Transportation Department at 209-6237.

A recent update in New York Education Law, effective July 1, 2018, requires that a complete physical exam be conducted for all students entering grades K, 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, and 11. We ask that you schedule an appointment with your child's physician if they will be in one of those grades in September 2018. Please forward the completed form to your school nurse as soon as the exam has been completed.
