ATTENDANCE ZONE UPDATE for PARENTS of INCOMING KINDERGARTENERS
Beginning in the 2024-25 school year, new students are required to enroll in the building assigned to their attendance zone.
If you are not sure of your attendance zone, please contact the transportation office at 716-926-2242.
If a family has older siblings already attending school outside their assigned zone, those students may continue attending that school,
but younger siblings are required to enroll in their assigned building.
Parents have the choice to move the older siblings to the building in their assigned zone or allowing them
to continue attending where they are until they begin Middle School.
