Orchard Park parents will have to break some old habits next year: The school system is changing phone numbers.
All of the district's telephone numbers will be changing their prefix from 662 to 209. The district's general number will be 209-6200, and an "automated attendant" will provide menus of choices for callers.
The new phone system also has Caller ID, and a voice mail system will be phased in during January.
According to the district, the system -- approved as part of a bond -- will cost $32,968 less per year than the current system, thus paying for itself within seven years.
