ENROLLMENT DIPS BY 2 PUPILS

Enrollment in the Hamburg Central School District declined by two pupild overall at the start of school this year, bringing the total enrollment to 4,205, School Superintendent Peter Roswell said in his opening day report to the School Board on Tuesday night.

Roswell said the district got off to a good start this year, despite concerns about a possible strike by school bus drivers, which was averted before the start of school.

Roswell said enrollment was "very close" to projected figures, with some schools gaining a couple of students and some losing. Boston Valley Elementary's enrollment declined by 17, but that was attributed to a very large fifth-grade class moving up to sixth grade, he said.

The overall enrollment shows the district's stability, Roswell said.

In other business, Mary Lavin, district director of early childhood education, reported on the Elementary Summer School Program.
