  1. Diphtheria and Tetanus-containing vaccine and Pertussis vaccine (DTaP/DTP/Tdap): three doses, grades 6 through 12; three to five doses, grades K through 5.
  2. Tetanus and Diphtheria toxoid-containing vaccine and Pertussis booster (Tdap): one dose, students eleven years of age or older enrolling in grades 6 through 12 who have not previously received a Tdap at 7 years of age or older.

A child must be five years of age on or before December 1, to be eligible for kindergarten for the upcoming school year.  Parents/guardians of students eligible to attend school in September and who are registered in our census will be contacted no later than February of that year to schedule an appointment to register their children at the school they will be attending.  Kindergarten registration takes place during the months of February-June at each of the elementary buildings and then moves to central registration.   

To ensure you are contacted for Kindergarten registration by your child’s school, please complete the district census card for all of your children 4 years of age and younger.  Upon completion of the census card,  please be sure to use the submit button  at the bottom page to electronically submit the census card.  Your child(ren) will then be entered into the district's database upon receipt of the completed census card.

Open enrollment is the opportunity for students who live in the Williamsville Central School District to attend a school within the District that is outside of the student’s residential attendance area. Each school year, the Board of Education decides which schools will be available for open enrollment in the following school year, based primarily on anticipated enrollments.

Please contact your child’s current school of attendance for more information, or call the Office of Student Services at (716) 626-8007.  A  letter requesting open enrollment should be submitted to the District Office Student Services Department or emailed to PColburn@Williamsvillek12.org.  Families will be notified of the acknowledgment of their request in a timely manner, please follow-up with Student Services if you do not receive communication back within a week of your request.
