Please work with your child's health care provider and school nurse to determine what immunizations are needed to comply with the new vaccine requirements. These minimum requirements include:

2019-20 Open Enrollment deadline is June 1, 2019!
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. If a school is expected to be near or at capacity, the school may be “closed” to any students who reside outside of its designated attendance area.
The Office of Student Services must receive written requests for open enrollment for the 2019-20 school year by June 1, 2019 for all school levels. Parents must submit a letter requesting open enrollment, including parents of eighth graders who, in the past, simply submitted a district form. They also need to submit the form and write a letter of request before the June 1st deadline. Please contact your child’s current school of attendance for more information, or call the Office of Student Services at (716) 626-8007.
For the 2019-20 school year, the following schools are available for open enrollment:
Foreign Exchange Students: Host families who live in the Williamsville Central School District may contact their districted high school to inquire about the availability and process for registering a student from an approved CSEIT program.
