Where We Live: Orchard Park, 1/10

Orchard Park

The school district will accept applications for “universal pre-kindergarten” from now until April 1. Children must live in the district and turn four by December 1, 2016.

If more apply than there are spaces, children will be randomly chosen with a lottery system. Selection is not based on academic or economic need. All are eligible.

Families are responsible for transportation to program partners at local preschools. A school district announcement asks people to please include first and second choice sites in the application.

Forms can be found at, picked up at South Davis Elementary School, 51 South Davis St., or mailed on request. Call 209-6460 for more information.
