Where We Live: Amherst


The Williamsville Central Schools district offices have been temporarily relocated to either North High School or Casey Middle School due to roof-replacement and other construction work. The relocation started June 18 and was expected to last up to two weeks.

Office phones are being forwarded to the temporary locations for central offices and personnel, school officials said.

The Central Registrar’s Office was relocated to the North High School Guidance Department at 1595 Hopkins Road. Student registration appointments will be conducted, as scheduled, at North High.

The District Office Reception was relocated to the North High Main Office. The main district number – 626-8000 – will remains in service.

The Community Education Office was relocated to Casey Middle School, 105 Casey Road, in Computer Lab C.

The Human Resources Department and Special Education will be relocated to the North High Computer Lab (A110).

The public is encouraged to call 626-8000 before visiting any of the temporary office locations.

Also this week:

• The Amherst Town Board will hold its regular meeting at 7 p.m. Monday in the council chambers of the Amherst Municipal Building, 5583 Main St., Williamsville. The meeting will be preceded by a work session at 3 p.m.

• The 4th Annual Glen Park Art Festival will be held Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

With Glen Park Falls in the background, more than 65 artists and craftsmen will display their work. Pizza, hot dogs and ice cream will be served, and music will be performed on the park’s main stage.

• Residents from Amherst and the surrounding area will participate in a walk at 9:30 a.m. Sunday to raise money for the fight against a rare genetic blood disorder. The “Care Walk” for thalassemia will be held at Ellicott Creek Trailway, North Forest Road, in Amherst.

Joycelyn Bila is organizing the walk in honor of her daughter, Josephine, who has thalassemia. Also called Cooley’s anemia, the genetic blood disorder in its most severe form requires lifelong blood transfusions as often as every two weeks and difficult daily treatment which for many involves sticking a needle in the stomach and pumping in a drug for as many as 12 hours every night.

The walk in Amherst is one of a series of walks around the nation to benefit the Cooley’s Anemia Foundation. Those who participate in the walk ask people to sponsor them.

Donations in support of the walk can be made at or by mailing a check to The Cooley’s Anemia Foundation, 330 Seventh Ave, #200, New York, NY 10001. Write “Team Go Buffalo” in the memo.
