Superintendent, Dr. Christopher Brown, announced this week that if we have no additional emergency closing days our "give back" days will be Friday, June 24 and Friday, May 27. If we have an emergency closing between now and then, May 27 will be reinstated as a regular school day, followed by June 24 if we have a second emergency closing.   

Kindergarten Screening Information

Information for Kindergarten Screening On Friday, June 24, all schools in the West Genesee Central School District will be closed due to a snow give back day. There were families of incoming Kindergarten students that signed up for screening on that day. 

However, because the buildings will not be open, we have had to reschedule screening for those families.

If you have not yet rescheduled, please call the Registrarís Office at (315) 487-4683 as soon as possible to set up a new date and time.

Due to renovations being done during the summer, all Kindergarten screening will be done at Stonehedge. Click here for school specific screening date information.
